I'm new in LaTeX and moderncv. I'd like to put my contact info under name but I don't know how. I found this problem similar to mine, but it changes position of the picture. This is my .tex file after modification:

\documentclass[11pt,a4paper,sans]{moderncv}

  % optional detailed information box
  \newbox{\makecvtitledetailsbox}%
  \savebox{\makecvtitledetailsbox}{%
    \addressfont\color{color2}%
    \begin{tabular}[b]{@{}p{10cm}@{}}%
      \ifthenelse{\isundefined{\@addressstreet}}{}{\makenewline\addresssymbol\@addressstreet %
        \ifthenelse{\equal{\@addresscity}{}}{}{\makenewline\@addresscity}} % if \addresstreet is defined, \addresscity will always be defined but could be empty

Update (moderncv v2.0)

With moderncv v2.0, we have to completely redefine \makecvhead to achieve what you want, so add the following lines in your preamble:

\makeatletter
\renewcommand*{\makecvhead}{%
  % recompute lengths (in case we are switching from letter to resume, or vice versa)
  \recomputecvlengths%

Original answer (works with older versions of moderncv)

With a little bit of hacking inside your code..., I've changed these lines

 % \begin{minipage}[b]{\makecvtitlenamewidth}%
    \raggedright\namestyle{\@firstname\ \@familyname}\par\medskip%
    \ifthenelse{\equal{\@title}{}}{}{{\centering\titlestyle{\@title}\par}\medskip}%
  %\hfill%
  % detailed information
%  \llap{
%
\usebox{\makecvtitledetailsbox}%
%\end{minipage}\ignorespaces%
%}% \llap is used to suppress the width of the box, allowing overlap if the value of makecvtitlenamewidth is forced
  % optional photo (rendering)
  \usebox{\makecvtitlepicturebox}\\[2.5em]%

to

\begin{minipage}[b]{\makecvtitlenamewidth}
    \raggedright\namestyle{\@firstname\ \@familyname}\par\medskip%
    \ifthenelse{\equal{\@title}{}}{}{{\centering\titlestyle{\@title}\par}\medskip}%
  %\hfill%
  % detailed information
%  \llap{
%
\end{minipage}\hfill%
\raisebox{1em}{\usebox{\makecvtitlepicturebox}}\vspace{2.5em}%

\usebox{\makecvtitledetailsbox}%
%}% \llap is used to suppress the width of the box, allowing overlap if the value of makecvtitlenamewidth is forced
  % optional photo (rendering)

and the result is
