Is it possible to change the default image when calling someone without a linked photo?

    You know when you call someone who doesn't have a photo linked to their contact it displays the green android guy. Well I really like what forum member sprint fun did with his avatar by making it into a OSU buckeye. I would much rather see that image rather then the green default android guy. Sprint fun has already said I could use the image, but I have no idea how or if its possible to set it as the default image for callers with no photo linked to their account. Any ideas?

    You can edit/change the image file but only if rooted

    Simple, go to your contact for this person. Scroll down to the bottom, and select Edit Contact. Then, touch the camera icon on the top left of the screen where the contact name is. Select your photo or image.

    I think he is looking for a default picture for "unidentified" callers/callees!

    You are correct.

    So rooting the phone is the only way? I was afraid of that. Thanks

    I have the same question. My pictures all look fuzzy and pixeled. I have the non glare, screen protector on it, could that be it?

    It gets pixelated after awhile when you are syncing with Google account because they resize the picture to make it smaller. Their is a thread in this forum n how to stop that from happening. Just do a search
