    Default [How to] Picture of contact when phone rings?

    Hi All

    Maybe a silly & simple question but...

    On the iPhone adverts, the iphone is shown with an incoming call and a picture in the corner of who is ringing... How the heck can this be displayed on the iphone... i can get it to put a full screen pic but not a small thumbnail.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks

    Floppy

    I think only works if you have a mac . The way you can do it is to open the Address book of Mac os then put a picture on one of your contacts on the Address book and sync your Phone. When that contacts call you his picture will appear like the advert.

    I do not know how can work in windows....

    I also noticed this a long time ago. When someone calls you - there are 2 types of screens. One is where a full image of the contact is displayed with the incoming call and another which is the thumbnail image of the person.

    To get the thumbnail view of the person when they call you - you need to do the following:

    1. Go to "New Contact" (click the + in the contacts screen).
    2. Add this person to the contacts.
    3. Click on "Add Photo".
    4. Select "Take Photo" and take a photo of the person!

    Once this is done - the photo will appear in the square and next time this contact calls you, you will see their image as a thumbnail and not the full size one.

    PLEASE NOTE: By taking a photo in this way, there is no way to retrieve this photo. The photo never appears in the camera roll. So if you don't want a copy of this photo to keep or take off the phone, then this method is fine. If however you want to be able to keep this picture or remove it off the phone - you must take the photo the normal way - using the camera app instead. You can then import this photo into the persons contact details but when they phone you - the picture will be full size and not a thumbnail.

    The way it works in windows to get your calls with small thumbnails, exactly like in the iPhone adverts, is to open office outlook 2003,
    open each contact and you will have a small frame where to insert a picture,
    insert a picture for all contacts,
    then sync your contacts with office outlook 2003:
    voila, all your contacts will show with pictures in small thumbnails like in the iPhone adverts , whether it is an outcoming or incoming call!
    There is no other way to do that with Windows!
    Enjoy.
