Default Contact images gone from text messages

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?

what rom are you using?

and have you tried removing/re adding or changing the contact picture and see if it shows 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.
