You all remember from the iPhone 3G commercial when infamous John Appleseed calls the phone, his picture appears next to his name. I've looked everywhere for this feature in the settings but can't find it.

Is this even possible to do or was it just for effect in the commercial?

If you sync the contact photo from an external app or service, like Outlook or Google, it will appear like that. If you assign the contact photo from the iPhone, it appears full-screen.

What happens if you have both types of photos assigned? ;)



.
You can only assign one at a time. Whatever is changed latest gets priority when it comes time to sync.

Where does the photo come from? Meaning how do you sync it for it to appear that way.
