Problem downloading Custom Avatar???

I downloaded a picture of a custom Avatar that I want to use to my JerryF file.  It said Waiting Approval so I assume that will occur shortly.

 

Then I went to my Settings>Avatar and it only allows the Community Avatars.  There is no option for loading my new custom Avatar "From Uploaded Images" or "From Your Image Gallery."

 

So my question is, What to Do...Help!

You can't have a custom avatar until you have reached the rank of Silver Contributor on the VZW community.

I'm most definitely NOT a VZW employee. If a post answered your question, please mark it as the answer.

Upload image to a photo host site like http://photobucket.com/ and then copy location and past it in http://community.vzw.com/t5/user/myprofilepage/tab/user-icons%3Aexternal and image should update..

 

Also if you find a image on a site just copy location and place in the web link option listed above.

Wildman,

 

What I did, foolish me, was to follow the directions offered by this VZ website blog.  It was easy to get my new ICON downloaded into my JerryF site where images are stored BUT the rest of the directions from that point on did not work.  I don't want to join another site just to download a new avatar...Thanks anyhow.

 

BTW, the website you listed,  http://community.vzw.com/t5/user/myprofilepage/tab​/user-icons%3Aexternal just goes to the avatar page.  Even if I had a website location address there was no where to paste it.

 

It's not that big of a deal.  I just thought it would be fun, that is, until I realized how difficult the VZ blog has made it to download your own custom avatar..

 

Thanks again,

JerryF
