    Noob question, theme vs wallpaper

    Advertisement



    Ok this is a very noob question, but what is the difference between a Wallpaper and a theme??? The general understanding I got is that a Theme is basically an alx file you put up and it changes the "look" of your menus and stuff, and a wallpaper is just the image in the background?

    is that true/accurate???

    If I just wanted to use a jpg image that I have on my PC could I set it as my wallpaper??

    I really just want to change that image, how would I do that?

    thanks

    wallpaper - just the background of the main screen

    theme - it can change the wallpaper plus the incoming call screen, icons, colors used the lock screen, and everything inbetween lol. just look at some screen shots of themes made. the wallpaper is just the background of the main screen thats it.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~

    Make sure that the image you are loading is 240x260 for the best quality.

    You can browse the 8100 wallpaper thread here, from your bb, and get walls that are already sized for your pearl. Just change the browser to select mode and click on image and save it.

    I will say that regardless of theme or wall, customizing the look of your bb is quite addicting. Mine changes a lot

    I will agree with cherri, it is definitely addicting
    although I don't change mine as often as she does...which is like every 3 days lol
