    re: Photo Appears When Phone Rings

    If you go to your contacts, click on the person you want, edit the contact and add whatever photo you want to appear... if you have that option. Not familiar with your phone but it should be there.

    If you have the person represented by a photo, then that's what should appear, but if they're represented by nothing at all or a generic avatar, those are what will be displayed when the phone rings. It's all done through Google and I do it on my PC (because it's larger) and the information syncs with my phones and tablet.

    Open the People app.

    Find the person's contact it create it if it doesn't exist.

    Add their photo to the contact.

    Then it should appear when they call.

    I know very little about these things and I cannot find the "people" app on my phone.

    BeeCee, relating to how it's done on a PC:

    I go to my google Inbox, using the browser. In the upper left hand corner is Gmail with a symbol pointing down. By clicking on that I get the option "Contacts". Click on that and it takes you to a Contact Manager page with all of your contacts displayed in alphabetical order. Choose the one you wish to modify and click on it. Again, in the upper left hand corner is a box with no picture, but rather a shadow image outline of a person'd head. If you rest the PC curser on that area it will display "Change Picture" - click on that. Next you'll see a smaller box popup with Select Contact Photo displayed. In the center it says you can drag and drop the picture you want to use or click on the bar in the middle and lead the box to where the picture you want to use is located. Obviously, you have to actually *have* the intended picture on your PC's hard drive. After that, it's just finishing up stuff.

    Got it now?

    My pleasure! I am no one's idea of a technician, but in this case I guess I explained it OK.
