    I’ve been successful in changing the banner, and uploading the pics from the phone…

    But for the life of me (I’ve searched the web extensively) I can’t find a way to download wallpaper into my phone. I’ve resized and save with XP paint as a .png file….

    If I send it as an attachment…it’s in my graphics file..but once there you can’t assign it as wallpaper…just a screen saver.

    Maybe you have to buy MS Photoshop??

    Also can’t get rid of the that startup/shutdown music and ad..geezz I’ve already bought Verizon..why do they need to throw an ad at me?

    BTY—this is with Verizon (buy-it-now-su*ks!).

    I've been using the data cable and brewsky...still doesn't work for wallpapers...did you get it to work with your own pictures that are re-sized and and changed to .png?

    Are you using Version's CDM8900?

    CMD8900 with Telus and it works.

    I crop\resize my picture (took from my real digital cam.) to 128 x 145 then save it in PNG formatthen upload them on my phone. They are saved in the Images\Wallpaper then from there I'm able to assign then as wallpaper.

    I have about 20 of my own pics on my phone to be use as wallpaper.

    Wallpapers: Some working, some not...

    I can't quite figure this out. I've resized a couple images to the correct size and format and saved them to my phone successfully. They work fine, I currently have 4 working as wallpapers. I wanted to set a company logo as a wallpaper though, so I created the image to all of the same specifications, but for some reason it says "file is invalid" when i try to set it as wallpaper. I can view it and save it in my web browser on the phone, but when I get to the stage of actually setting it as wallpaper it says it is an invalid file. There is no difference betweem this logo image and the pictures I have already working on the phone. It simply doesn't make sense to me.

    That is the image which won't work. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
