    I believe whatever you set there will be used as your default info for auto-filling forms... just a guess though...

    How can I change My Info under settings on my iPhone? It's not my name, it's my brothers name for some reason and he has never even touched my phone or has anything to do with my account. Does anyone have any advice on how to change this?
    Thanks!

    In the settings.

    This info is also used by Siri in the 4S.

    I just realized under my settings mail, contacts, calendar... Under my contact was infact not my contact info, but another person on my contact list. What has this been doing? Has any of my info or this persons info been going to them if other places? This is quite concerning. :/

    On my: settings/mail,calendar,contacts/my info, it states "None" (in gray). When I click this option, it brings up my contacts folder - I'm guessing to choose a contact to display under "my info". I don't have myself as a contact in my own contact book . . . . and don't see a reason why I would need to.

    This feature isn't crystal clear to me either . .

    It auto-fills your information in forms, tells Siri your name and any relationships you have, and works with Find my iPhone to list your home, work, etc. It doesn't send information to anyone else, or overwrite things on your computer. It just tells your phone who owns it.

    I also have someone else's info under My Info. When I click on it, it takes me into contacts, just like others have described. This makes no sense!

    I too had this problem and just figured it out. If you have not added yourself as a contact in your contacts do so now. Once you've done that when you click on my info find your name in the contacts and select it. It will update your information *sigh of relief* have a good day folks!

    Except now the autofill no longer works after upgrading to IOS6. A link in the 6th comment explains why, here: https://discussions.apple.com/thread...art=0&tstart=0
    Anyone here have ideas? Also not sure why the URL link I posted isn't clickable.

    It's just so that your phone knows who you are, I think it's mainly useful for Siri.

    Correct. You should create a contact record for yourself and My Info should point to that contact record.

    Settings → Mail, Contacts, Calendars → My Info

    I'm surprised that the "previous owner" didn't restore the device prior to selling it....��

    First delete the previous owners contact card if there is one.
    Then create your own contact card with your number, email, etc.
    Then go to Settings > Mail, Contacts and Calendar > scroll down to the Contacts section > Tap "My info"> then tap your name in the contacts list.

    I did it wrong the first time and picked my brother as the contact. I went back and changed it to myself three times; I have done this I am almost 100% positive the right way, and it still won't change from my brother to me. what do I do?
