BlackBerry Tour: How to change contact pictures

With your BlackBerry Tour, you can assign each contact in your address book a picture, so that when that person calls you or when you call that person, their picture will show up on your screen. The contact picture can be any viewable picture stored on your BlackBerry, and setting one up is easy.

To add a picture to one of your contacts (or to change their existing picture) go to your contacts list and find that contact on the list. When that contact is highlighted, press the BlackBerry button (the one with seven dots that looks like a paw print) and scroll down the list of options until you see Add Picture, which should be pretty close to the bottom. Click the trackball, and a thumbnail list of your image files should pop up. (Some of the thumbnails might take a second to fully load.)

If there is a picture in that list that you want to use, just click the picture to select it. You can also go up to the top of the list and select Camera, which will allow you to take a picture at that moment and use that for the contact picture. Or you can go to Preloaded Pictures (right below Camera), which is a collection of different cartoonish profile pictures that come pre-installed on your BlackBerry.

Once you choose a picture, you'll see a message that says "Picture set." Now whenever you call that contact, that contact calls you, or you view their profile, that picture will appear. You can go back in at any time to change the picture by following the same process.

how do I set up speed dialing with my blackberry tour thanks Jason


Press and hold a key (not the #1) and you should get a message asking you to assign a speed dial to the __ key? Once you accept yes then it will open your address book.

Unable to view my Address book


This is typically caused by a filter being applied in the address book. Open you address book, press the BB menu button, and select filter. Once you are in the filter options, make sure that all check boxes are unchecked, then exit back out.

This may not be the cause of everyone's issue, but it may be a solution to some of the problems.

Another thing to check is if the contact are actually in the "Sim Phone Book" opposed to the regular address book. Open your address book, press the BB menu key, and select "Sim Phone Book". After doing this, you may see all of your contact in there and you should be able to copy the contacts to the BB.
