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

Thanks in advance!

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.

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.
