Tip & How-To about RIM BlackBerry? Tour 9630 Smartphone
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.
