Can I add a photo to a contact?

I'm using Outlook. Windows Vista Home Premium. Curve 8320.

 

Is there a way to add a photo to a contact so their photo appears on my screen when they call?

 

Do I need a media card, or a memory card? 

 

Help!  I'm a new user (you figured that, huh?).

 

Thanks for you help!

Re: Can I add a photo to a contact?

The picture needs to be on the device at which point you can add it to the person's entry in your Address Book and it will appear when they call.

 

Yes, you need a micro SD card (not technically, but practially).  On an 8320, assuming the OS is 4.3 or higher, you should be able to go up to 8 Gigs.

Too much memory?

I have a 8330 with a 8gb card.  The only problems I have is when I play music.  I have about 900 songs on there so far and they take a couple of minutes to load up.

Re: Can I add a photo to a contact?

Jerry I dowloaded the pictures for my contacts, set them up, and then erased them from my Curve. Each contact still has the picture I loaded. The only picture I have is my wallpaper. I didn't have to keep the pictures on my Curve.

 

Hope this helps!
