    Hi, on my old iphone, when I searched for a business within Google maps and saved it as a contact an image of the map was saved as a sort of avatar.
    This does not seem to happen when doing the same on my S2, am I doing something wrong? is there a work around or a search app that will allow me to do this pls?

    Yes it gives me the option to use an image stored on my phone or take an image.
    On my previous iphone if I searched for a business within Google maps and then saved it as a contact it used a small screenshot of the map as a contact image and this is what I was hoping the android phone would do .

    Can a mod more this to the Samsung Galaxy s2 sub-forum. You will get more looks and someone to better answer this question.

    Thanks, I originally posted there and got no response, I thought as a general Google Android problem and not specific to a S2 this would be the best place.
    I'm new and didn't mean to get you upset. :)

    It's ok. I am not upset. Just sorry I wasn't able to help you. The only reason I suggest the Samsung Galaxy S2 forum is because I see you are in the UK and your question would received more looks. My Evo lets me add to the contact list when I do a search with google maps, thats one of the options. I don't get an image like you stated. I think google on the iphone tend to do some things differently compared to Android.
