    Before iOS 5, when I added a picture to a contact on my Mac it would automatically sync with my iPhone via MobileMe. When that person called me I would see the picture, small, next to their name.

    However, now whenever someone calls the picture takes up the WHOLE screen and it doesn't look as good like that.

    If you've never synced with MobileMe before iOS 5 then your contact pictures have always taken up the whole screen when a call comes in.

    Any way to fix that?

    This isn't new to iOS 5.

    If you add the contract pic to address book on your Mac, the picture when displayed on your phone will be small.

    If you add the pic to the contact on your phone (instead of doing it on your Mac), the picture will be full-screen.

    I don't have a Mac.

    What about iCloud? What if I delete my photos on the iPhone, re-up them onto iCloud, then sync wirelessly? Will that give me small ring photos?
