    having just upgraded from windows mobile 6.1 to android (and loving it btw) i decided that because of some important details in my sms threads on my old omnia i900 i would copy them across to my new android, a quick google told me there was only one app for the job - sms backup&restore and its windows mobile export counter-part. using these two i copied my messages and copied the contacts through gmail however since i have updated some contacts have their facebook profile picture next to their message thread while some, those who have been texted the most seem to lack this - until i choose to send a text as "new message" where it appears until i back out of the thread. wondering if there's some solution to this minor niggle in an otherwise amazing OS.

    right, sorry for the bump but i thought it best to post this solution i found incase anyone else has a similar issue, with names displaying in quotation marks and contact pictures not being assigned properly only in the SMS app after a restore. to fix first use the sms backup and restore to backup the messages on the phone (after all thats why youre in this mess) then move the .xml file to a pc to secure it. now backup everything else and do a factory reset on the phone - i tried clearing contacts and just sms and both but it appeared a full reset was necessary. after the reset add the contacts back - i used a gmail account sync. and for all the ones for which you had the problem create a message as a draft. now restore your old messages and the app should work properly from now on.
