    On the Finger Tips, has anyone noticed that when he assigns a photo and ringtone to the contact, he then gets a call, and the photo fills the WHOLE screen when he calls?

    This is in contrast to every other call we've seen coming in on the iPhone, which just puts a little picture of the contact in the top right of the screen at the side of their name, with just the wallpaper image filling the screen.

    I wonder if you can choose to either display a full size picture of the caller, or a small picture and then use your default wallpaper for the main image?

    I've been trying to figure this out for the last 3 days.

    I used Address Book on my Mac and added photos to all my contacts before syncing my iPhone. With these contacts, when they call, I get the small icon in the upper right.

    I used my iPhone camera to snap a couple of photos of my friends to replace or add their picture to their contact info. All the photos that I took with my iPhone appear full screen when they call.

    I prefer the small icon in the upper right rather than full screen. (I like my wallpaper....and I still find it a tad disturbing having my friends faces pop up full screen whenever they call).

    My only workaround right now is to send all camera photos back to my computer...dump them into Address Book and then re-sync.

    If anybody knows the proper way to set the photo ID settings, please let us know!
