Picture ID with samsung U540

I got a new Samsung U540 and I can not get the picture id to work properly. I assigned a photo to everyone of my contacts, but when they ever call me a blank screen with their name would come up. I brought the phone back to the store and I was given a new U540. This time after assigning photos to each contact the wrong photo would appear when a contact would call me. I again brought the phone back to the store and I was given a new U540, after the store staff could not get the picture ID to work for them selve's. Now I am on my third U540 and when ever one of my contacts call me the wrong picture comes up. I have followed the steps correctly everytime. I take a picture, save the picture, assigned it to a contact. when that contact calls the right name and phone number comes up, but the wrong picture comes up as well. the picture that comes up is totally random, it could be any assigned picture for any contact. please help.

    I tried BrigitteD's solution of removing all the 1's and it worked for me also; now the right picture comes up with the incoming call.



    I have since put all the 1's back in and removed all the picture id's because I travel a lot and it was a hassle having to put the 1 in manually each and every time to dial, I can live with no picture to do away with dialing the 1. Samsung needs to do something; are you listening SAMSUNG.

This might be a possible solution....as I have had the same problem, with 2 phones...
Finally, I went to another cell phone rep - and we FIXED the problem!

My cell phone numbers in my phonebook are all saved with "1-area code-phone number" ie: 1-555-555-5555. The problem came from when people were calling me, locally, their number would come in as are code-phone number ie: 555-555-5555. The cell phone couldn't match the caller ID perfectly, so it would alternate between blank pictures, black pictures, wrong pictures.

Re-save your numbers, without the 1, and it should work fine - well, it did on my phone! :) Good luck!

You won't get a picture unless you go into the settings menu for the blu-ray player and tell it that you want to send the picture through HDMI, but you will have to hook up your three audio video cables and either find your remote or get a universal programmed to it.

Give this a try. Plug in your mobile phone to the pc. Once ask on how do you want to use it either sync,mass storage or com port just select mass storage. Once selected go to photos folder where the picture that you want to delete is located. Just drag the pic to a different location like c: drive or documents and try deleting the picture from there. Once the picture is removed it would not appear anymore on your contacts.

How do i allocate a certain ringtone to a caller


unfortunately in samsung j700...doesn't provide the facility u mentioned
but it allows user to assign particular ringtone and callerid for some group of contacts...
the group may have 1 or more contacts so saving each contacts in each seperate group may indirectly met ur requirement

By creating groups of contacts, you can assign
ringtones and caller ID photos to each group or send
messages and emails to an entire group. Start by
creating a group:
1. In Idle mode, press <Menu> → Phonebook →
Group → <Options> → Add.
2. Enter a group name and scroll down.
3. To set the caller ID image, press the Centre key
→ an image category → an image.
4. To set a group ringtone, scroll down and press
the Centre key → a ringtone category → a
ringtone.
5. Press <Save>.
