    I cannot find a setting anywhere. I have no pictures on the list or in conversations. I am running beta 9.1

    No setting, it's just there. Do you have a gray circle with an initial there instead perhaps?

    It's not showing up at all for me, not in my list of messages, and not in my contacts list.
    Under my own number in contacts I have a picture of myself, but that about it.

    Does anyone know how to remove the bubbles entirely?

    No way to control that--you can add or remove the actual pictures, but you'll either have a picture being displayed or a gray circle with initials if a picture isn't available.

    Do you see the gray circles with initial instead for others?

    In the Phone app it will only show up in the Favorites tab. In the Messages app it will only show up on the main conversations list screen.

    Yeah it's not showing in the main conversations bit, not even the circle with the initials.

    And you are sure you have 9.0 (or 9.1) installed?

    Yes, 9.0. Everything else from 9.0 works.

    I changed, that fixes it but I can't use normal view anymore. I guess I'll have to wait for my 6s+ next week.

    What do you mean you can't use normal view anymore?

    I hate it. I much prefer zoom view. I prefer larger content over more content.
