    Open the contact, then hit the menu button and select "edit". Then just tap on the sillouhette to select a picture :)

    Oh! You're trying to create the contact on the SIM card! You have to create it in the phone or google to be able to add the other details like pics.

    Here is how I have done it. I already had a Contact set up and had a Picture I wanted to use. You go to "Gallery" and get Picture you want to use. Go to "Menu" and then "More" then "Set as". Select "Contact Icon" then scroll though your Contacts until you find the one you want.

    Or you can do it from editing the contact first.

    Long-hold on the contact in the list and choose "Edit", or while looking at a specific contact, press Menu -> Edit.

    Press the blank photo, then choose "Album" to select from the gallery, or "Take photo" to take a new photo right then.
