Text messaging on Kin Onem (two part question)

I've recently gotten a Kin Onem and it's a great phone so far.  I have a two part question about text messaging, so first part...  How do you set a picture to be your picture when you text, like how it shows the conversation as a chat, there is the photo of the contact you are talking with, but how do you make the a photo for yourself?  Part 2 is, do people have larger text messages come in in multiple parts?  I used to not have this when I sent/received texts from within Verizon on my other phone however it seems to be the case for all texts now that I'm on the Kin Onem.  Thanks for your help!

Congratulations on your new phone!  It is a great device.  To answer your first question: No you can not set a profile picture for yourself.  To your second question: Yes larger text messages will be spilt up into multiple text messages.  This is limitation that all carriers have when using sms technology.  I hope this helps.  Thanks

Thanks for your help.  I actually figured out how to add a picture to the phones contact for itself the other day by accident, I went to send myself a text message and noticed when I typed my number in, a contact called "phone" came up.  So I went to that contact and was able to assign a photo for it, therefore giving myself a photo!
