    Hi all.

    Is there a way to set owner info in Nexus S, instead of creating a "me" contact or whatever?

    I want to set my info, and it would be good if I could call me (e.g. I'm at work and want to call my wife at home).

    I don't want to state the obvious - but can't you set up a contact for your wife with your home number? You can have the same number listed for different contacts...

    I don't want to do that.

    But I have found a way. My SIM must contain my number, so the contact I have created for me is associated to the SIM number.

    The problem is that my SIM card did not contain it, and Android can't write it to the SIM. So I took it, put in an old V3 RAZR (there I can edit it), put my cell number in the SIM card, and got it back to my Nexus S.

    Done! Now, for example, my contact card is shown within the messages I send.
