Hi all,

Please help! I don't know why when someone calls, their pictures do not appear. After I set a contact's display picture, it automatically disappears after a while. What should I do?

Thanks in advance! :laugh2:

are you using a Jailbroken phone? Or a stock one?

Also, what firmware? When you ask for help those things really affect the answer you will need.

okay. yeah 1.1.4 is what we need to know. So since you are jailbroken, what kind of apps have you put on your phone? I had an issue one time where an app kept resetting my ringtones and erasing my alarm settings. Is it something similar with your picture situation perhaps?

thanks Hayesimus, i wish i could just pass you my phone right now. okay the applications i have are SMBPrefs, Customize, Installer, SwirlyMMS, BossPrefs, weTool, Poof, Flashlight, VNotes, Showtime, ParkingLot, NES, Pool, Tetris, iZoo, FiveDice, iSolitaire, Garf, TextTwist, Gemlogic, Sketches, Millionaire, EvolutionRGB, iMemory, WeSpot and ipokereval.

i really don't know which app (if it is) is causing the problem! and i can't remember when the problem started (after downloading which app) because it just suddenly happened without me knowing!

sorry for the longwinded post and thanks for your help again! appreciate it :laugh2:

Hmmm. I also use or have used SMBPrefs, Customize, Installer(naturally), BossPrefs, weTool, Poof, Flashlight, VNotes, NES, Tetris, FiveDice, Garf, and Sketches. The rest i've not bothered downloading. So, am I correct in thinking that most of the others are games? I know what SwirlyMMS is, but I'm not sure what Parkinglot, evolutionRGB, iMemory, and WeSpot are.

ok, so do you suggest i delete those and see if my contact pictures appear again? should i do that? or?

well that's entirely up to you. I would say that if it is just a game, it wouldn't interfere with that feature of your phone. I had issues with things while I had customize so I uninstalled it until they work some kinks out. But again, i don't think that's what's causing your problem. How often do you sync your phone with your computer? Do the pictures ever show up properly? Like do they work and then you sync and then they stop working?

i sync my phone with my computer everyday. nope the pictures stopped appearing since about 2 weeks back.. actually the pictures appear in my photo album but when i assign a picture to a contact, the picture doesn't appear when someone calls..

hmmm. what about ringtones. have you set any ringtones to specific people? do they disappear too? I'm really stumped because as long as you are hitting save. they shouldn't NOT show up.

here's an idea. you can set pics to your contacts on your computer also. then when you sync they should automatically show up

are you on a pc or a mac?

Just testing the waters to see how annoying it might be to start over with the contacts thing. I'm curious also if these contacts were entered from the iPhone or synced via a third-party application of some sort...

If needed. Depending on how he got the contacts into his phone, they may be corrupt somehow. I don't know why nor have I heard of such a thing, but if the poor chap can't even assign a contact picture with his phone, something is amiss.
