    Default change your contact picture?

    Where do you go to change your contact picture on the s5?

    The one that shows next to your messages in the messaging app? Seems everything logical doesn't do it, I.e. changing the pic in the "my info" contact, my Google+ pic, nothing. Infact all three are different pics now.

    Any ideas greatly appreciated!

    In the message app, tap on the image box and what pops up should have a little edit pencil in the upper right corner. Tap the image box that pops up and select the option to add your photo.

    I also just changed a contact's photo in the contacts app and it updated in the message app and in my Handcent SMS.

    Hope that helps!

    In the messaging app, I clicked on my picture, it brings up my contact that shows the new correct picture. It's right there, but the messaging app is still using the old one.

    I had disabled the Google+ app. Once I enabled it my pics updated. Stupid.

    Thanks for the suggestions.

    You need to create/save a user profile for yourself that is tied to the phone (i.e.ot Exchange), that cleared up the same issue on messaging that I was trying to fix.
