    I'm pretty sure that if your contacts are synced from lets say yahoo mail or some other type of contact book and your contacts have photos linked to them, then your call screen will appear as it does in the commercial. If you assign a photo to your contact through your iphone, then it will appear as it does on your phone.

    I have photos imported from address book, and created on iPhone and they all look like the screenshot from the commercial. :confused:

    I think the full-screen large-face version is dumb. They should drop it and make everything use the small version.

    Getting a call is one of the few times I see my wallpaper, I don't need a big blurry face blocking it out. Not to mention the fact that it usually makes the person look bad. I make sure to set ALL my photos in Address Book so I never get the large-face photo.

    I think the small one is dumb. I want to see who is calling me. However I think an improvement would be in order. Call comes in and displays the photo in large format and when you accept the call, it transitions to the smaller format photo showing your wallpaper. Now should you choose to use the speakerphone, you'll see your wall paper just fine. Sounds like a nice improvement to me. :)
