    Question Help retrieving contact pics
    Does anyone know how to retrieve contact pictures from the phone?? This really bothers me. Like if you set them by going to create a new contact, and from "add new contact" you go to "add photo" and take a picture from there, the picture is only connected to the contact. Like it doesn't show up in 'Camera Roll.' It's ONLY shows in the contact listing or when the person calls.

    I can't get them when I regularly connect. I was thinking to use cmd or iPhoneBrowser... I don't know, anyone got any ideas? I usually dont assign contact pics that way but I forgot I can't retrieve it and it's a really nice picture that I want so bad. Thanks in advance

    I believe the files are in /DCIM or something in your iPhone. They can be accessed with iPhone Browser, iPhoneInterface, Manzana, etc.

    Sorry, I went out for a bit, this is what shows up when I do an ls:
    Applications
    CalculatorBackground.png
    DisplayList.plist
    library
    sbdockbg2.png
    services.plist
    system
    bin
    all the bottombarknob's
    cores
    dev
    etc
    mach
    private
    sbin
    tmp
    usr
    var

    You probably didn't need all of that but there ya go. I must be missing something?.....

    I opened like every file in iphonebrowswer looking for where this picture could be. I found two DCIM files but the picture wasn't inside, it just had pictures from my camera roll which this picture like I said is not there for some reason. I really don't know why the iPhone would do this it is really stupid. I can't get it on my computer but i can just view it on my phone if I edit contact and edit picture - it pops up bigger.

    Here are where I found the DCIM files:
    private>var>root>library>media>dcim
    var>root>library>media>dcim
    I think they might be the same thing but i don't know.

    I'm starting to think that i it's not even a big deal and I should just go take another picture lol. if anyone can help though I would still appreciate it.
