    iPhone 4s
    Photo Stream off

    Take a photo on the phone
    Go to a contact then "edit" "add Photo"
    Select "Choose Photo" Choose photo in Camera Roll
    Message "Saving Photo"
    Tap "Done"
    Photo stays in contact for about 5-10 seconds then disappears

    If I go back to edit - add photo - there is nothing there

    What's the problem?

    What are you syncing your contact database with and how do you have it setup? I know in my case I can add a photo either on the phone or within Outlook and it shows up just fine in both places.. It almost sounds like a another database might be overwriting the one in your iPhone.

    The only thing I "sync" with (I guess) is Yahoo although I never set it up to sync but I see in the contact under "Linked Cards" it shows iCloud & Yahoo if that means it sync's with those

    yes your syncing with those so it seems your going to have to add the pictures in one of those however I highly recommend you to sync with only one place for contacts

    Also, where iCloud & Yahoo were shown under "Linked Cards" there is no longer any "Linked Cards"
