This simple example gets the image from contacts in android.

private void getContactsDetails() {

		Cursor phones = getContentResolver().query(
				ContactsContract.CommonDataKinds.Phone.CONTENT_URI, null, null,
				null, null);
		while (phones.moveToNext()) {
			String Name = phones
			String Number = phones

			String image_uri = phones

			System.out.println("Contact1 : " + Name + ", Number " + Number
					+ ", image_uri " + image_uri);
			if (image_uri != null) {

    Hi, I tried your code but no image displayed. Can you tell me how to display facebook contact images in android listview.

      Check whether your image is null or not in the Logcat.
