    ICS new text message style

    So did anyone notice with this new style we can't change our own picture for our sent texts.

    Actually, you can. It's tied to the Me contact.

    Long press where your picture should be in the text, and the contact information for Me will pop up. Tap on the picture, and that will take you to the contact. From there, menu -> edit. You can add the picture there, along with editing your name and other information. You can also change it from the People app itself by editing the same contact.

    In your People app, is there not a section called Me above the A's?

    No problem. It took me awhile to figure out how to add a picture for my texts as well.

    I think that's a "feature" to allow you to switch to a different input method quickly if you want to. I get the same thing with SwiftKey 3. The keyboard icon remains in the notification bar on mine whenever the keyboard is onscreen. Selecting any of the keyboards doesn't make it go away for me.
