    You're going to want to create a contact for yourself, then go to Settings > Mail, Contacts, Calendars and then scroll down to "my info" and select the contact you created. This should automatically update your card at the top of your contacts

    2. Locate your contact card
    3. Select "Edit"
    4. Scroll down to the bottom to select "Delete Contact".

    Switch the phone off and back on, it should update the name on the card and picture.
