  • Currently when I press the “new message” button the new message screen opens up, but it shows a picture of one of my contacts and their name with an outlined star that I can click on on and fill or not. What is this? Why is it showing up ? does it send with the text message?

  • in the conversation ..me as the sender my picture is not showing up but my contact, receiving message it does.
