    Hi,

    i wonder whether anyone can help - I would like to have small pictures assigned to my contacts in my iphone adress book, however, i noticed that any pics assigned to iphone are shown full screen when I call them or recieve a call. Is there a way to make them appear small like on the iphone adverts shown?

    I have searched on this forum and appears you can only do this through the address book app on Macs (unfortunetly i own a PC - though not for long :) ) - there is some mention of adjusting the pic dimensions on a PC to soemthign like 128x128 and then sync to iphone - the phone will then automatically use the small version of pics when assigned to contacts...but havn't tried and grateful if some1 could confirm the resolution needed and whether this would work.

    Many thanks

    You need to assign the contact pics through itunes and NOT through the phone itself.

    Just to add to this.

    Add the photo to the address book you use on your computer and have it sync that photo through iTunes. That photo will show up small.

    Thanks guys. Unfortunetly I do not use an address book on my PC. However, I didn't know itunes allows you to add pictures to contacts - from where would I do that? From my knowledge I thought itunes only allowed you to sync your phone contatcs with another program one may use to record conatcts (i.e. outlook etc) - but as I mention above I do not use any other program?
