You would have to delete the contact out of contacts. It you just delete the pic, it will still show a letter. You can replace the pic with anything. Even a solid white photo.

I asked to have this only as an option early on in the beta. I don't like it either and found myself assigning pictures to my contacts because I hate those initials

Why not use a solid white image in place of a profile pic? No photo, no letters. Just white.
Here's what it looks like if you use a white image in place of a profile pic.

That SHOW CONTACT PHOTOS option is totally useless I guess. If it's ON or OFF, you still get either a picture (if you have one) or an initial (if u dont have one)

I added my first picture for a contact just to see if the pic is off when I shut off SHOW CONTACT PHOTOS yet the picture still shows. Why even have that option if it does nothing? :))))

Because it is only an option for the conversation list, not the thread.
