    Ok...I'm lost. How do you set your own photo for messaging? I can't find it anywhere.

    I think the proper place to do this is in Contacts. Call up a contact, select the menu key, choose Edit Contact, then click on the square box above the First and Last names.

    You can either take a photo, or pull from the Gallery, which if you choose the latter, will allow you to also select a File Explorer if you downloaded one (I use ES File Explorer), and you can go off navigating the contents of your SD card for a graphic image.

    Right, but how do you set your OWN photo? I can't figure that out.
