More Than Just a Pretty Picture – Make Your Phone Contact Photo Work For You

You know that picture that comes up on your phone when someone calls you?  There is SO much more that you can do with that!

While I have lots of places to store things on my phone – Reminders, Notes, Photos – there is only one place I count on to search and find things quickly, and that’s my Contacts.  Each Contact has one photo, and I have learned to make that work for me.

  • I took a photo of my AAA card and I always have it with me, under AAA.
  • I took a photo of my eyeglass prescription, and I always have it with me, under the name of my eye doctor.
  • I took a photo of all of my sewing thread, stored it under the only place I go for thread, and I never again have to wonder what colors I have at home – or buy another duplicate.

Note that for all these, there is one more step: I need to start to edit the photo if I need to see ALL the edges outside of the circle – in this case, all the thread.  It’s worth it.

What do you store in your Contacts?  What could you store?
