    With Froyo, a little picture appears next to each sms message, but for myself it shows only a grey square.

    I do have a picture on my Google Settings About Me profile page, so does anyone know if I have to specify the picture somewhere else?

    Thanks in advance.

    Had this problem too. Solved it by adding myself as a contact in my Gmail Contacts.

    It should pull your Google profile image just like Google Talk does but for some reason it doesn.t

    You make sure to have your phone number in the contact entry?

    You have to add yourself to your contacts list.

    I added myself as just "Me" with a pic (same one I use here, actually, because Disturbed rocks) and my number. That did the trick.

    Because your SIM number is nowhere related to your Google Account

    You need to have your number listed in Settings => About => Status.

    Right now you probably have 'Unknown' you need to put your SIM into a phone with the ability to edit it's own number (I used an SE K550i) and change it.

    You're right, it's Unknown.

    I'll try and do it, thanks a lot, man.
