    In contacts, tap on a contact to open it up. Press Menu button. Tap on Edit.

    Then the fields of the contact are editable, and where the generic head silhouette is, in the top left corner, it now has a + symbol on it, and you tap on it to edit it.

    Also, if they are GMail contacts, you can add photos from the GMail website.

    GMail Contacts

    Just double click on a contact and click "Add a picture" in the upper left area of the contact card.
    You can use a local file, and image from your Picasa album, or any image on the web.

    Had this same problem a few minutes ago.

    Managed to solve it with the help of the above poster and trial and error.

    To save pictures with the contact i believe you must save them to the Phone and NOT the Sim which mine originally were saved too.

    You can then also leave lots more info about the contact.

    Hope this helps

    I was really disappointed with how bad the contacts pictures look when synced with facebook so I decided that I would save some of my contacts pictures off fb and then edit said contacts manually.
    I tried to save the pics whilst browsing facebook on my phone, which I couldn't, bit I did however stumble across the option to add any of my fb friends pics to the contacts in the phone book.
    Looks so much better than how it does it manually.

    Friendcaster has a HQ contact photo option. Could give that a try.
