Re: profile photo on messaging

You are talking about messages application,right? You can add a contact photo to change that.

Re: profile photo on messaging

Just to clarify are you referring to wanting to remove the silhouette that appears when there is no contact picture? If so I am sorry you cannot, the only way around this is to add a profile picture to the contact.

Re: profile photo on messaging

I have a profile picture always have. It shows up on my lock screen in the status bar. So I know it's applied. But it's never shown in messenger. Don't really want to clear data to try and fix it as I'll lose my conversations. Not that fussed

Go to Contacts and edit yourself.

Remove your telephone and save

 

Your photo should now appear in Messaging
