    Pics assigned to a contact directly on the iPhone show up as full screen. Pics added to contacts on your computer then synced to the phone show up as a thumbnail.

    I took a picture of a contact with the phone and assigned it to a contact and it still shows up as a small thumbnail in the upper right corner. Hmmm.
