|G1/Android won't add pictures to contacts||vanessa.hsu||2/26/09 9:24 AM|
I recently got a new G1 and although I was able to do this one, every other time I've tried to add a picture (in my pictures folder) to a contact, it appears when I add it but disappears when I press save. I thought it was a sync issue, but the pictures still won't appear after I save the contact.
The steps I follow are:
- Select contact
- Menu > Edit Contact
- Tap on picture > Select picture > size
- Tap Save on the picture
(Picture now appears in the picture square on top-left of contact)
- Scroll to bottom of contact > Save
(Contact now appears with no picture on the top left square (Shows the little android drawing)
I'd like to point out the pictures are already saved and can be shared via email, etc. and that I have previously added a picture to one contact, but cannot do it for others.
Thanks for your help,

You can only save picture to contacts who have email address associated with it.

I have the same problem. The contact also has an email address so this could not be the source of the problem (and I don't see any connection there anyway).
In addition the auto-sync goes into an endless loop, showing a short error message and then starting again.

I don't have the sync problem but my contacts also have email addresses and the problem (of not saving contact pictures) remains.

Same issue here. But with mine, the phone icon is shown when the call is incoming but when I hang up, the phone icon changes to the preset photo, ever so briefly, as then the call screen closes as the call ends. Weird.

Android does not support picture in contacts. They just don't tell you this. they make up this thing about email addresses, but it is basically nonsense.

I have had the same problem in that I cannot add a photo to my contacts from an existing photo. However, I find that I can take a photo and save it to the contacts. Very Frustrating.
