    Default oh no!! stupid contacts

    My contact pictures are not working right at all. Idk what to do. I am trying to set a picture that i took with my gs3 as a contact picture, but it does not work right. It uses the picture that i have set from my own number info. The word part is i don't even have that picture on my phone any longer. I deleted it after it kept happening to three different contacts. But i try to use a picture, even a picture i downloaded from chrome, and it still uses that picture that no longer exists!!

    HELP! Please?

    I already rebooted, wiped cache, force closed, battery pull, blah blah, so please no bad advice. Thx

    If you don't want advice, don't whine and don't bother us here. Go buy an apple and have fun.

    It's because it's syncing to your google account. When syncing, it doesn't matter what pic you use as a contact pic, it will always default to what you have on google and replace the one on yur phone. I think it sucks that it does this but it does.

    Just go into your sync settings and find your google account. Tap it and uncheck contact syncing. Now replace the contact pic with the one you want. That will fix your problem.

    I unchecked Google sync and i rebooted and tried to use a picture, but still the same result. Earlier i did a wipe of the cache and the phone only to end up with the same result after i restored my nand backup.

    Even after a wipe and it still displays a pic that either you never set or a different pic altogether means the phone is sycing to an account that got backed up and resyncing. This could be google, samsung sync, picasa, facebook, etc. Figure out where that pic got stored and unsync that account.

    Also, make sure you click "save" after you set the pic as it doesn't auto save if you just back out. I've seen this happen so many times
