    Does the android phone allow assigning photos to contacts?

    How can I change the default android picture that comes up next to the contact on my android phone? Will installing a theme help in replacing the default contact picture?

    Yes, android OS allows you to assign pictures for contacts. Usually the OS will put a default picture next to the contact. You can also install various themes available for android phones. These themes also will be having a default contact picture. You can still customize the picture for each contact. For this you need to open contacts from home screen. Then you need to press the menu key. There one of the options will be assign picture to contact. You need to select the desired picture and tap on save.

    Hello Guest,
    Ya, ofcourse this feature has been provided in Android powered phones. For this, Go to your phone Gallery, tap on the required photo you want to assign and Tap "more" option. Thereafter, select the "Set as Contact Icon" from the popup which is displayed on the screen. Your contact list will Appear. Select the desired person from the list. You can crop the photo. After this, the same photo will be assigned to the contact which you selected. There is another method of doing the same. Go to Contact list. Then Long press the person whom you want to assign the contact icon. Thereafter, select "Edit Contact". Now you will see a box on the top left corner of the screen. This shows the preview of the assigned contact photo. It will be empty by default. So, tap on it. You will see options, "From Camera" or "From Gallery". So you can either click the photo on the spot and set it as the person's contact icon, or simply select an existing one from your phone Gallery. After that, press OK and you are done. Thank You.. :-)

    Hello,
    Yes you can add your own defined pictures to respective contacts.

    Just tap on Contacts from homescreen.
    Tap on a particular Contact..
    Menu>Assign Picture to contact. Then browse your gallery,select and crop the picture,then save.
    You can do it directly from Gallery.
    Go to Gallery > Select a picture > tap on menu > Set as Contact Photo > Browse your Contact list > Select the one you need > OK..

    And there are some nice recommended apps like HD Full Screen Caller Id,Video Caller ID,Full Screen Caller ID,Big Caller ID etc which can be useful for you. You can customize all the pictures for your contacts easily.
