    Default Samsung Galaxy S3 contact list

    When I go into my contacts it only has a list of all the names, theyre pretty small and close together since theres no pictures next to them and its kind of a pain. I have pictures saved for a lot of my contacts and I cant figure out how to make them show up on the list again, anybody know where that setting is?

    I have the same problem.
    It started (by coincidence?) after the 4.4.2 update I just downloaded a week ago.
    I sort of "semi-fixed" it with "Open Contacts Free" app.
    Now, 75% of the time, its back to the name & pictures displayed.

    I need a permanent solution though.

    I don't have a fix for all the pictures at once, but if you edit the contact and press the icon (where the picture would be, to the right of the name), you'll gert a menu to take a picture or to use one already in the phone. If you have a lot of contacts, it's a lot of work.

    Why did it happen? No idea. It didn't on my Note 3 when it updated to 4.4.2.

    Thank you FrannieeGracee. Reseating the SD card worked for me. No idea what caused this. Contacts looks normal last night, with a small photo or "blank head" next to each. This morning they looked like a textfile.
