I suggest you ...

force-refresh contact pictures

When changing a contacts picture on my phone / tablet / in google contacts, it does not update in mightytext, neither on the web- nor the tablet-app.
It would be nice to be able to re-sync single/multiple/all contact images, either from the web or tablet app!

    it is shocking to read that this issue is already reported so long ago end never solved. i will uninstall, i do not want to use an app that has no support.

    Didn't reinstall, but did get a new phone; pulled in same old (out dated) contact photos... can't figure out a way to force it to update to current ones. A force refresh of contact pictures would be great!

    Agreed this is a major annoyance for an otherwise wonderful app. Does anyone know of a workaround, eg deleting the app's database file? Uninstalling/reinstalling the Chrome Extension doesn't make any difference, nor does manually clearing the cache. Any ideas???

    It is coming on a year since this was first suggested and by reading many other posts it is a must have feature, which I agree. What does it take to get this feature implemented?

    Please fix this. I have no photos in my web app, but it would make it a lot easier.

    I've gotten plenty of popup notifications in the web app that says it's syncing my contact photos, but it obviously doesn't work right because once it has any pic, it never re-syncs. Even marking a contact photo in my phone as the default doesn't cause it to change.

    Was just about to send them an email about this. I can see now it's a problem and we don't know if it is important for them to fix.

    If MightyText aren't going to fix this, even when people have offered to pay, is there a similar app that works similarly and does this?

    +3 on this issue. It's been this way since the start. I'd always assumed it was some address book cross-over issue and I was too lazy to search which address book(s) had my old contact images.

    I can see that's not the case since so many are having the same problem I'm having. I'm just glad I'm not Carlos Danger. Can this be fixed, MightyText?
