A year ago, TechCredo published a tutorial on how to set the “Me” picture on Android 2.3 Gingerbread. Without a proper Me picture, Android’s native Messaging app will just display an empty grey box next to your messages.
The process for setting the Me picture is fortunately a lot less complicated on Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. Here’s how to do it.
1. Open the People app and tap on the Me contact at the top of the list
2. Open the menu and tap Edit.
3. In the upper right corner there is a picture or a box, tap on it and select the appropriate option to set your Me contact picture.
