Has anyone else had problems with their gmail profile pictures only appearing in the gchat message threads, but NOT when sending text messages through the Google Nexus S to other cell phones??

I thought that I had my phone synced up with my gmail account, so I don't know if I've missed a step.

When I send SMS to another phone, it's not sent as my Google profile, eg., but as my number, eg. +123456789.

If you add your own number to your contacts, and then add profile picture, you will see it in SMS chat.

Dont think the gmail profile picture and the sms picture will sync up. When you are in an sms chat try pressing your own picture and updating it with a picture of you.
