    Exchange ActiveSync contact photos on Razr Maxx

    Recently upgraded from HTC Droid Incredible to the Razr Maxx. Love the battery life. However, I've noticed that with the stock Moto Contacts app, the photos that are associated with my Exchange/Outlook contacts don't appear in my contacts on the Razr Maxx. I only get photos from Facebook contacts. This worked fine on the dInc. I'm wondering whether other Maxx owners are seeing the same thing. I know I can copy the contact photos to the Maxx and manually associate them with the contacts, but I was hoping to avoid all that extra work since they're already associated within Outlook. If the stock Contacts app won't do this, what 3rd party apps can any of you recommend that will sync the Exchange/Outlook contact photos?

    Thanks!

    Any Razr Maxx owners out there that are using the stock Contacts app to sync (activesync) with Outlook 2010 and are able to see their contact photos on their Maxx? Just trying to figure out whether my Maxx is functioning as designed or something is wrong. Thanks.

    I use outlook all the time, but my contacts are all old fashioned, I don't have any photos of them unless they are linkedin contacts.

    Thanks for the feedback, mleber and RazrMaxxOwner. It looks like the Razr Maxx stock Contacts app is treating ActiveSync contacts differently than it treats contacts from FaceBook, LinkedIn, etc., with regard to the contact photos.

    Are there any Razr Maxx owners out there who are using Touchdown and have ActiveSync contacts with photos? I'm wondering whether Touchdown or other 3rd-party apps will sync the ActiveSync contact photos.

    UPDATE: Installed the Touchdown demo and it syncs the contact photos just fine. In fact, the stock Contacts app now includes the photos, which tells me that the stock Contacts app is taking advantage of Touchdown's sync adapter. Guess I'll be ponying up to purchase Touchdown when the demo is set to expire.

    Yeah I started using Touchdown when I got this new job, and it has been great. I have two boxes setup and it works flawlessly, yeah 20 bucks is harsh but worth it.

    One thing I don't like about it that I have not found a setting to change or turn off. Is the fact that it downloads all the attachments from emails to my Gallery, so I end up with a bunch of different folders with small pictures in it and have to go and delete them. Course there could be a setting somewhere that I have just not found and need to turn off.

    You may have to navigate to the actual folder with attachments via a file manager and place a ".nomedia" file in there, it should keep them out of the gallery.
