'SMSContactPhotos7' Enables Contact Photos Throughout the Messages Application
For those of you that want to add contact photos to your Messages application in iOS 7 to make it even easier to discern who it is that you're talking to, there's a new free jailbreak tweak dubbed SMSContactPhotos7 by iOS developer David Harkey available that will do just that.
SMSContactPhotos7 will add contact photos to both your messages list view, and your conversation thread view. By making contact photos visible in both of these views, you'll see them no matter what you might be doing in the Messages application.
The contact photos take the flat, round iOS 7-style appearance that you would expect, so this tweak does a good job of making the feature look like a natively-enabled feature.
If you want to give SMSContactPhotos7 a try, it's available for free in Cydia's BigBoss repository. The tweak has no options to configure.
Requirements: iOS 7.0-7.0.4
Developer: David Harkey
Editor's Rating: / 3.5/5

OK, a few things to say...
First, idk why this wasn't standard on iPhones like it is for iPad. I'm appreciative of the many tweaks that enable this on phones but just wish it was standard from the get go.
Second, Anthony, I notice you rate a lot of things 3.5 stars. Why? :P

I think you should scrap your rating system coz it's a load of b*llocks. You haven't said anything negative about this tweak, and even though it does exactly what it says it does, you didn't give it 5/5!

Messages Customizer does this and much more. Been enjoying that for a week or so.

Ive used message customizer and recently tried copic(beta), works the same but has more option including contact pictures in email. However pics are mixed up on group messages. Im gonna give this a try while waiting for copic to release an update..
