    Seems like that would be a part of the Sense UI, but since I haven't used it, I'm not sure. You may want to ask in the Incredible forums since it's using Sense UI over Android as well.

    Sense UI definitely supports full-screen caller ID, I'm running Sense 2.5 right now on a WinMo device and I remember that 2.1 did the same full-screen function.

    HTC is a big fan of a full screen caller ID in their Sense UI. So yes, unless they dramatically changed their Sense for the EVO, i'd suspect a full screen CID.

    Does sense automatically pull the most current Facebook picture for caller ID photo like WebOS? Those little things are nice touches.

    Is this something you can turn off. I'm sure there are times where I wouldn't want my friends' facebook profile pic flashing across my phone in all of its 4.3" glory since their profile pic isn't always a pic of themself.

    How it works for me presently is that you can specify if you want to use the facebook profile picture, OR a profile picture of your choosing per contact. So, I think you will be fine!;)

    Do I need to set this for every contact or can I set a default policy? I have hundreds of contacts and setting each one would be annoying. WebOS is great in that it always is in sync and has the most recent facebook pic for caller ID.

    Sense will set the default picture for each contact to a default contact image(basic silhouette), then it will be up to you to customize your contacts based on either Facebook integration, or personal preference. I think HTC recognized that everyone has their own preferences...and some folks don't want to be Facebook "friends" with all their contacts.

    Totally. WebOS doesn't make you facebook friends with all your contacts but it does import any Facbook info into contacts. I know this annoyed a lot of folks who didn't want to scroll through hundreds of contacts but the universal search really took care of that. I haven't scrolled through a contacts list since last May. Also I'm not "friends" with anyone on Facebook that I don't like so it doesn't hurt to have their email/phone in my contacts list. It's helped me out many times in the past when I needed to get hold of someone and just typed their name in, only to pull up contact info imported from Facebook.

    It's gonna suck to go through all those contacts and just say "yeah, download their pic".

    Yes, HTC Sense 2.1 supports Photo Caller ID and every phone I've used running the Sense interface, including my current Sense 2.5, has this feature available.

    Anybody have a screenshot of what that looks like?

    I'm so used to the small pic that comes up on my Touch Pro caller id, that I'm trying to visualize how a fullscreen caller-id would look like...LOL.

    Unfortunately the only camera I have on me right now is my phone so I can't take a pic :)

    CLARIFICATION: A thousand apologies:eek: to all in this thread as I totally forgotten that I have third party app on my WinMo Sense 2.5 device which intercepts my incoming calls and does full screen caller ID(2nd screen shot example) ...Me bad! I've been running it so long apparently I have totally forgotten the app was resident. So, correction/clarification time - Sense 2.1 supports Caller Picture ID(1st screen shot example), but not FULL screen caller ID natively.


    Caller ID Screen Shot SAMPLES:

    Below shot is Sense 2.5 on WinMo TP2 running custom ROM:

    Below is using third party app on my Sense 2.5 TP2(Resco Contact Manger), which provide true full screen Caller ID:

    Thanks SO much for the pics, S4L! First pic is exactly how it is on the Touch Pro, so that's what I'm familiar with.

    Fullscreen Caller ID is SICK! I love that. So, just for clarification, will the EVO come stock with fullscreen caller id like the 2nd pic? Has that even been established? I don't even mind if it's a simple app to download (as long as it doesn't f' up the ability to answer calls).

    It's interesting that I can find a number of apps in the WinMo world that will provide this, but I'm running into a desolate wasteland in the Android app world. I'm digging deep to find a solution however for us however!

    Only problem is, WinMo never had a "market" like Android or like the app store for the iPhone. I could search and search for apps on WinMo, which was fine, but it just took too much time. Part of the reason I like the idea of moving over to Android is for "convenience."

    I'm in total agreement....this is the first specific function I have run into a brick wall on the Android platform.
