Caller id pictures are small

When I get a call the picture on my caller id is about the size of a postage stamp. Is there any way to make the pictures show up bigger? Some of the picture were off of my computer and they were 8X10 pictures so I wouldn't think that it would be because my pictures were too small. I would appreciate any help I can get since this is also my first smartphone so I am still learning.

Re: Caller id pictures are small

Hi and welcome to the forums!

 

You'll need a third party app, I'm not aware of an option to change the crop size.

I know of an app "PictureID" by Toysoft listed for .$3.99 USD in AppWorld.

I'm not endorsing it as I haven't used it, and I'm sure there are other apps as well.

Thanks,

Re: Caller id pictures are small

I have tried the apps like that but none of the picture id apps will work because the blackberry torch is not supported. I was told before I bought my BB that with caller id picture would be a fullscreen pic.

I figured that I would ask here before having to spend $50 for tech support from BB.

Re: Caller id pictures are small

HI,

 

Who exactly told you the pictures would be full size?

I would like to learn more about this feature, do you have a link?

 

It's certainly your decision to  spend $50.00 dollars or test the free trial of PictureID v.3.1

I have no association with either Toysoft or RIM, I'm a user just like yourself.

Let us know how it goes!

Thanks,

In the native operating system, there is no full screen picture caller ID on the torch.

Don't waste $50 bucks calling RIM technical support on that issue.

 

A third party app as Bifocals has said, is your only hope of finding this.

 

Good luck.
