    Just as the title says. I am using the Handcent SMS program for texting and no matter what size I choose the picture to display, or if I toggle the display picture on/off, the contact's pictures never show up in my message thread lists. Anyone else have this problem or know how to fix it?

    I am assuming you are looking to see Facebook Photos? Handcent DOES support this now (since version 2.9.18) and always supported the local photos. If you have updated and they are still not showing check under Settings and Display Contact Picture. Mine is currently set to "Large" and it displays both pictures I have taken and associated with a contact as well as the Facebook pictures for other friends.

    Out of my entire list of message threads 100+ and prob about 20-30 that should have pictures, only one of them does. Even when I click it to "display contact picture-->large"

    The pictures in message threads is one of my favorite things about the phone...so I can't justify using handcent over the oem message system. The only benefit to handcent is the different color led and different thread types in my opinion. I will uninstall until it is configured to display the photos.

    I would try uninstalling and reinstalling. As I said, it currently shows the pictures from Facebook and this was the major reason for the 2.9.17 release (News & Events).

    very odd....

    when you go into settings/applications/manage applications and open handcent..

    Is the option to clear cache available?

    If yes clear it. (I think it will be grayed out though)

    Last resort would be to uninstall again and hard reset then reinstall.

    The pics should just automatically populate over. Not sure why this is happening since it has been fixed via update

    Every time I have had a problem with pictures not displaying be that in contacts or Handcent it has turned out to be a facebook issue. Try logging out of facebook and logging back in. That wolrked for me
