Hello everyone I have a quick question I just upgraded from a my touch to iphone 4s...On my old phone when i looked through my contact list you were able to see a thumbnail image of the contacts photo while looking through your contacts but I noticed with the iphone as your looking through your contacts it doesnt have the thumbnail preview..It only shows picture if you select contact or when the person calls ...Is there a way to configure it?
