    Ok you know how in the iphone commercials when they show someone calling or them calling someone the contact is just a small pic in the right upperhand conner..

    but if you add a contact on your iphone the picture of the person is the whole background of the phone

    well i just figured out how to make it like they do in the commercials..

    this is on a mac..

    I put all my contacts into adress book on my mac and synced with that ..now anytime i call someone or someone calls me its in the upper right hand conner

    Remember seeing this in a thread when the iPhone was first released, i certainly have known about it since then.

    I seriously had no clue, until two years ago I read an article after the original iPhone came out.

    I've had my iPhone from when it first came out, now on a 3G, and had MobileMe all the time. And I am so glad I am not the only retard out there. Used contacts on my Mac and was like, OMG LIL SQAURE.

    OP- we need to high five sometime.

    I've since changed all my contact pictures to the little square version.

    I love MacRumors! :)

    I'm guessing this only works on a Mac, right?

    I didn't know about this and I certainly wouldn't have thought to do a search for it, either. So, thanks for the tip, it looks a lot better than having a full screen pic.

    To get it straight, I need to add the picture to address book on my Mac then sync, right? What if I use OTA syncing? Does it still do it?

    The same thing applies if you sync up to an exchange server for your mail / contacts.
    The only problem I have had though, is anytime I have tried this by adding a picture to my outlook / exchange file, it works great as far as it being a little picture up on the top right, but the picture that I add always looks crappy & grainy. It never turns out as clear as the pic that was added.

    Not sure if there is a work around for that, if so, would love to hear it. :confused:

    not just to bust your nuts, but you might want to fix up your grammar

    and plenty of people say "epic fail" that aren't in the 8th grade, they're in the 7th grade

    QFT. And fix the run on sentences. USE a period or something, unless some of the posters just don't want to be understood. :)

    Yeah, that's real clear, thanks.



    Why is this thread still open?
