    Default Changing Photos in Contacts

    I want to change the photo of a person in my iOS 6 Contacts list. When I go to edit the contact, the word "edit" shows up at the bottom of the current photo. However, when I tap on the photo, the only command choices are "copy" and "paste". The current photo and new photo are on the camera roll. Can anyone help me avoid deleting the entire entry and starting all over again?

    Where are you contacts getting pulled from iCloud Gmail? or are they only local on the phone itself

    Try rebooting your device and trying again. If you have iOS 6.0.1, your choices (after choosing "edit" and them tapping on the photo you want to replace) should be:

    Take Photo
    Choose Photo
    Edit Photo
    Delete Photo
    Cancel
