    Can't change a contact picture.

    I'm having an issue where I can't change the picture associated with a contact.

    I open the contact, options menu, edit contact, and press the pic icon at the top. It opens my gallery and lets me select a pic. In this case it's a camera pic.

    When I try to save it though, I get a FC on some android process and the pic doesn't save.

    Anyone have an idea of how I can fix this?

    Figured out a work-around for this. Apparently when I edited the contact I never noticed that there were two Google contacts and one Facebook contact all merged together.

    Editing the pic on the first Google contact is what gave me the error. But I was able to edit the pic on the second Google contact just fine.

    Go figure.

    Hey! Didn't know this (never thought to try).

    So I have contacts that aren't FB contacts. When I try and save a picture to them, it force closes. Any ideas?

    Did you guys try what I posted? In other words, edit the contact and see if it has more than 1 google contact entry. If it does, try setting the pic on the second entry.

    Only one entry. Under edit there's only one spot for a picture.
