    Is there a way to take the profile pics off of iMessage messages on the iPhone plus?

    Thanks in advance!

    If you're saying so you don't see any photo or blank photo period, I don't believe so.

    I agree - the closest you can get is to set their profile photos to an all-white photo.

    I'm including one below for your convenience. Right-click and save to desktop if you wish to use it:

    Is anyone else experiencing an issue where avatars are not loading? Raf's avatar is broken in his post.

    His avatar is working. He set a Windows broken file image as his avatar.

    You can't. I didn't know the new iPhones showed a profile pic in iMessage. I knew they did on all iPhones for group messages.

    Most wish they had the profile pics in iMessage. I wish I did. I only have it in group messages.

    Not me. I don't want contact pictures for phone calls, either. I prefer to just see the names.

    Agreed. I see a lot of people on other forums, especially reddit, asking for removal of contact pictures.

    I like the full screen photos on phone calls, but don't think I'd want the profile pics on text messages. Is that a new feature on the 6 phones, or were the comments about group messages?

    It's exclusive to the 6 Plus.
