    I'm having the same problem of my photos not syncing to my new ip4. They're on MobileMe, my iMac desktop, and my Macbook. And power cycling has not done the trick.

    so has there been a fix for this issue yet? Just got the phone last week and discovered that I can't add photos to my contacts on the iphone 4. just as prior posters have said, I can add a photo if it's already in the library on the phone but just snapping a photo to apply to a contact does not save the photo at all. And actually when I did add from the library, it didn't work right away either. Had to do it a couple of times before it stuck.

    I have the same problem as the users above. Sometimes, the picture sticks, some times it doesn't. Sometimes it does stick, and when I check it up later, it's gone.

    Pretty annoying, although turning it off and on worked, as mentioned by a poster above. I hope it stays that way.

    I wound up with this same problem after upgrading to an iPhone 4 yesterday, from a 3G (other details of setup available below). The phone initially had no trouble synching pictures with my contacts and then, inexplicably, all contact photos disappeared.

    I also use MobileMe.

    I tried shutting the phone off and restarting it to see if that would rectify the situation, but it did not.

    I have found a solution by doing the following:

    1. Open Address Book on the Mac.
    2. Go to each contact that has a picture and double-click on the picture to go into editing mode.
    3. You don't need to actually make any changes; just hit return to default to "OK."
    4. Complete this process for each entry that has a picture.
    5. Synch your iPhone.

    Your pictures should be back, if you have the same experience I did. I am not sure if MobileMe would have eventually synched them back after I completed the photo editing process described above; I preferred performing a synch instead, which worked.

    Hopefully this will stick.

    Good luck, and please indicate if this worked for you.
