Following Restore, Where Are My Contact Pictures Located?

I just did a restore and my contacts show up with their pictures, but I don't know where these picture files are saved. They aren't saved to the normal folders that I had them saved in.

 

So, I dragged and dropped them into a folder on my BlackBerry, but I am fairly sure that the pictures for my contacts are being pulled from somewhere else.

 

Anyone know, please?

I believe that your contact "caller ID" pictures are stored in the Content Store database. That database you will notice is listed in the Restore > Advanced options. It is not accessbible to the user, otherwise, through the BB.

So, there is no way to remove them from the device?

Sure, there is.

 

Open the contact, delete the image from that contact.

And then just add them back in from the Picture Folder?

 

What about the photos I added in with Vringo (via Facebook)?

Yes. Just as you would normally add a picture to a contact, there is nothing that has been changed there.
