    Well, because no one has any idea how to change from the phone symbol to the index card symbol on the large "people" icons I found another way to do what I want.
    I still can't believe nobody knows how to fix that problem but oh well.
    Anyway, I found that you can add a people shortcut which adds a small face icon and made my own people page.
    It works great. When you tap it it brings up all of the persons info and allows you to choose what action you want.
    Just like the large default people icons *IF* you could change to the index card symbol.
    Now, the ONLY problem is, I can't get the persons picture to show up on the main page instead of the silhouette pic. I am synced with google so all my contacts have pics and they DO show up in the info when you tap on the icon but NOT on the main page icon.
    I just want to add the pic to the home page icon, any ideas how to to do it ??

    I don't think it will sync over pics from Gmail like it does with Facebook. Otherwise, you will have to have their photo in your Albums and from there you can set as their contact photo.

    The pics do sync with google because when you tap on the main page shortcut icon and open it the pic shows up in the upper left hand corner.
    I just can't figure out how to make it show up on the main page icon.
