In the "quick settings" grid you get by pulling down the right-hand end of the notification bar, the top-left item is a photo. I'd like to edit or remove this photo, but when I tap it, it says "The contact doesn't exist."

How can I edit or remove this photo?

  • I am sorry, it is not clear about what you are talking about. To help, you have to throw in more information - put yourself in other's shoes and see how those not involved with your problem can understand your question. You wouldn't get answers if your question is not understandable. – Narayanan Apr 3 '13 at 12:17

Go into the People or Contacts app. At the top of the list is a heading Me with a special item to Set up my profile. Click that item and it takes you to the "New contact" screen. On this screen, to the right of the "name" field, there's a little grey "contact icon" box. If you click that you can replace the photo with a picture from the Gallery or by taking a photo.

  • Why is this not taken from my address book like every other contact? – endolith Oct 30 '14 at 14:15
  • @endolith I thought I explained that it is, it's just a special "me" contact. – Dan Hulme Oct 30 '14 at 14:25
