    Hi everyone, so I've just got myself a Desire HD and I want to use the gallery photos, which I have transferred into the SD card from my PC, for some of my contact photos but they don't show up in messages. They show up fine everywhere else though and facebook contact photos show up fine in messages but not the pictures in my gallery. Is there a fix for this? Many thanks!

    Welcome to the forums :)

    Are the contacts SIM, Phone or Google Contacts?

    Hi El Presidente, thanks for responding. They are phone contacts.

    Strange, I've done some playing about and I've just seen I have the same issue. I use GoSMS and it will display all pictures regardless, but with the stock app, only contacts with FB accounts linked have pictures.

    I'll have a play about and see if I can come up with anything.

    I've just realised that if you unlink all the other accounts that have been merged with a contact, it will display the contact photo from the gallery when you restart the phone. But if you change the gallery contact photo to another one which is also in the gallery, it goes back to the grey icon and you will have to restart the phone again to display the new contact photo. Must be a bug of some sorts..
