    Hi everyone,
    I gave my used EVO to someone and in the process of programming the information (which I did over the phone with Sprint) from his blackberry to the EVO, once his contacts moved over one of them had a completely different photo assigned to it (same correct contact just different photo of that person). I only know of 2 ways of assigning a photo to a contact: 1) by taking picture from saved pics and assigning or 2) facebook download

    Does anyone know of any other way a picture would just show up that wasn't already in the other phone? I have no idea how it got there since my friend says he never took the pic and isn't friends with this person on facebook! :mad:

    Welcome to the forums!!!!!:D

    Did he sign into facebook? It could be a photo downloaded from that.

    Was that the photo assigned to it on the blackberry? It could have somehow gotten transferred over.

    Honestly, I'm not really to sure. Hopefully with more information we can figure it out.

    Thats a strange issue.

    Is the contact that was added a google/gmail.com contact? If yes, then that person most likely created a google profile and included a picture. So when you added them to your contacts, their google/gmail picture and information automatically appeared.

    Ok, so this response is for Rxpert83, not sure if I'm doing this correctly? I am new to any type of forum....
    Anyway, no that photo was not assigned on the blackberry, that's the thing, the picture that was assigned did not transfer over it was a completely different pic of this contact!

    yay! I did the other response correctly! :D
    Ok, so to answer your question, this wasn't a new contact that was just added. She was already a contact on his blackberry. I guess the deal is this....the pic on his blackberry was of his son and the contact is the mother - now the pic is actually HER and my only thought was that he had to have taken the picture himself and in his saved photos for it to show up. I've already looked at her profile pic on FB and she doesn't have one up so it couldn't be linked to that. I guess I honestly don't know if she has a google account? Would that truly be an explanation as to why her pic is on his phone now when it wasn't before? Ugh! This is so frustrating.....thanks so much for your input!!
