    Contacts in messaging and update

    So I'm running 2.2 on a rooted Fascinate and I was getting absolutely terrible battery life until I downloaded an ADWtheme. I do not know if these two are simply coincidence or if there is a correlation between the two. I would think this would be the opposite because my phone is doing a lot more. Whatever, I'm not complaining.

    Now, an issue that I've been having that I've tried to fix until I was blue in the face is that my contact pictures will not show up in my messaging app. It drives me crazy. I have looked through forums and everything suggested does not fix it. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    As far as Verizon releasing an update recently (ED01 to ED04), is there any benefit in downloading this? If I were to download, I would have to unroot and reroot, am I correct?

    Another random fact but I just bought a Cyclops case and I absolutely love it!

    Thanks for everything!

    Can't speak to the messaging contact pics, but I don't think it's worth going to ED04. More problems have been reported with that build than with any other.

    Are you using the stock messaging app or a third party app like Handcent, chomp,Gosms? Also, do they show up under your phone contacts?

    I'm using stock messaging. I was using GOsms but I really wasn't a fan. All of the pictures show up in my contacts. Honestly, I didn't have an issue until I rooted my phone and Froyo'd it but since then I've obviously unrooted to do the Froyo upgrade through Verizon. Everything I've read online says to delete the FB cache and data and uninstall the app, reinstall, and sync it and you're good to go... yeah, i've done this about 400 times! it's frustrating. any advice will be greatly appreciated.

    My setup is GoSMS Pro and selecting "sync only w/ existing contacts" on the Facebook app install, and my contact pictures do show up in contacts and in GoSMS Pro.

    And there is a setting in Facebook that has to be set right as well. Can't look it up right now but a google search is how I found out about it in the first place.

    They did show up when I was using gosms but I didn't like the app. I would get incoming texts that would preview in the status bar but never show up in the actual conversation. this was slightly inconveniencing to my social life. lol but it didn't show up in stock before i downloaded gosms, i also have my fb settings set up the same way.

    i believe i know what you're talking about - something about fixing the settings to make sure FB is allowing it. i had already checked that.

    What is is that you didn't like about Go SMS?
