    been tickering around for about 20 min now and can't figure out how to assign my wifes pic to her contact. I have a picture of her on my phone but only know how to access thru the wallpaper selection

    Any help would be great.

    thanks

    Also experiencing the same question as the OP. Following Praveen's instructions, when I get to the 'Edit' page titled "Edit contacts", the only choice I have is to change their name and number. Their is no photo icon to click on or anything else other than name and number.

    However, I have just discovered that this is only the case if you are using the contacts stored on the Sim card. If you copy the contacts across to the phone by clicking on the original contact > menu > copy to phone. Then return back to the Contacts and click on the contact which does not have the green & yellow sim card icon (the one you have saved to the phone memory), you can then proceed with Praveen's instructions which will then work.

    Probably easiest if you create phone contact with the same name, then link to the same google contact. Should then be albe to add a pic.

    I'm new to Android, but I have made all my contacts Google contacts now. Nothing's on the phone or SIM. Downloded a trial program to synch all my Outlook contacts from my previous Win-Mo device even. It's a pretty sweet set up let me tell you. Very easy to organize when you're in Gmail on the PC too. Once done it auto synchs your phone contacts. I love it. I've even started collecting pics off the Internet for things like restaurants and friends across the country. (Turns out Facebook shows you all sorts of personal photos and I don
