Setting Profile Pic for Messaging?

    I'm curious as to how to setup a profile picture for myself on the phone.

    Basically, in Messaging, I can see photos for other people, but "Me" just has the default Android icon.

    Is there any way of setting a photo for that ("Me"). I suppose I can create a contact in my address book for myself, but I feel a bit silly doing that, lol. Surely there's a way of just setting a profile picture somewhere?

    (My Google account has a profile pic, as does my Twitter etc - I thought it would have just grabbed it from tha.).

    Mine set up automatically when I synced HTC's People app to fb and google.

    I don't know what phone you're using, but check the Contacts to see if there's a special contact card for your own details (which should have a place to edit your picture).

    Why? Give it a shot. I'd feel silly if that was the solution and "feeling silly" prevented me from having a timely solution. I guess YMMV.

    I went into contacts and added myself, and my phone number, then I added my picture to it. =)

    Once in messaging, I tapped on the blank pic, then opened the linked contact (voicemail), and edited it to insert the pic I wanted. Worked for me...
