    Recently my son finally left the dark side and got an Android phone via Verizon. Somewhere along the line he changed his profile photo to a picture of his wife. Now when he calls somebody her picture pops up, causing all sorts of confusion.

    So I got to thinking I wonder what pic shows up when I call somebody? I called my wife and an old picture of me came up. Nowhere in any of my Google (I'm a Google Apps user) profiles is this picture displayed. Not Google+, not the profile in my Google account in the search screen or in Inbox.

    The point is he definitely would like to change it and I would also like to change it. Where is this done?

    Well, if your wife has your account saved in Google, changing your Google+ profile pic should also alter what picture shows up on others. Of course other people can set up a picture they want to see for your calls which affects only their own phone.

    Are you sure the picture isn't from some other social networking service that might be linked to the phonebook?
