    I have contact pic's on my home screen of my kids and hubby and they all have this little black box thingy in the far right lower corner that are driving me nuts ( blocking some of the picture). Can any explain why they are there and how can i get contact pics without these bloody box's:( I'm sure its something got to do with the contacts not being on the phone/sim or something to that effect:thinking: By the way, each contact pic when selected allows me to either call, text or view the contacts details.

    This little box tell you, what standard action you will get when you select the contact:
    View
    Phone
    Text
    Email

    You can choose the standard action with a long press on each contact in the People's list screen.

    But why don't you use the new Sense 3.0 picture frame widget for looking at the family's pictures. It looks great :)

    Thank you for your reply harry2 but i think we've lost something in translation there:) These are not my "family pictures per say" i do have those in an album on my phone. The icons on my home screen are "quick contacts and on my old desire they were just the complete picture of lets say husband, sister, daughter etc. But on the sensation these pictures are coming up with this bloody black box thingy that hides most of the pic:(.

    With that picture frames I just tried to be somewhat humorous, sorry :)

    I had a look at my old Desire at the pictures of the People widget and I didn't see any difference to the Sensation's :thinking:

    EDIT: The size of this black box: If you lay, say a 4x4 imaginary grid over the picture, it would be one part of grid in the far right lower corner?
