    How do I get my iPhone 3g like that?
    With the picture in the corner? Apple always advertises their iphones like this, but I can never seem to set it like that

    How?

    Put the person in your address book with their photo.

    Im bumping this because I agree, having the giant head of the person your calling is a little tacky.

    Well you must have some other issues because that's all you need to do.

    Ok, the ones I have done with my iPhone and added the pic on their use the entire photo in the background. The ones set up in iChat only show the small pic in the top right corner.

    No, i'm just tired of asking for a simple question, and people posting replies when they don't even know what their talking about. I obviously tried it. It's an option right in my face. I got my other friends to try it, and it doesn't work. I've posted a thread like this before. Others have tried adding pictures to their contacts but it only appears in the background

    Okay, so basically im doomed because I have a PC?

    is the persons phone number in the contact? if it doesnt match the number in the contacts it dont know whos callin. make sure the area code and everything matches the number of whos callin. this was what happened to my cell phone. the area code needed a 1 in front of it or the phone didnt know that it was the same person as in the contact.

    btw: i dont even have an iphone. if this is the problem then i get a cookie.

    only 2.0 supports this. all newer versions don't. and it comes with the old 3G and EDGE icons.
