Here's the deal, my contact's images are still on my phone in the contacts list and when making calls. But, they are gone from my text messages. I have wiped cache/dalvik, fixed permissions, cleared data from the app, reflashed my rom. Any body hae any other ideas of what might synch the images back up?

I'm on MikG3.11

I haven't done that, most pics are synched from FB and a few are from my gallery but, none are working, its so weird. If I bring up a contact and check our message history from there, everything is right but, if I access the messages from the app drawer or desktop shortcut, no images.

Mine does that when I fix permissions to fix it go to the file in the pic and select files

I can confirm that this worked with me on ICS.
Just dont know how to:
1. I can select them all
2. But when I press permissions by long press on the list it just changed the permissions for only the file which was just under my finger. Not to all of them.

So I had to do them one by one...
If anybody can instruct me how to change the permission for the whole selections I would be grateful.
