    .Gif Homescreen?

    Advertisement



    Hey Friends,
    I was wondering if there is a way to save a .gif file as the homescreen wallpaper. A buddy of mine got a mms the other day and set it as his home screen background wallpaper. However when I tried it only a quarter of the .gif showed up and wasn't animated. I have the 8320 and he has Black Slate from Verizon. Just curious!

    Thanks,
    Hank

    Unfortunatly, you cannot set an animated image as your homescreen and have it move...
    However, I could make you an animated SVG out of it and apply it to a homescreen and build a theme around it. If you are intrested, let me know.

    luciferseamus,
    I thank you for your response and for your offer. However, I wasn't quite looking for someone to make me an svg theme around a certain image. lol I was just wondering if it could or couldn't be done and if it couldn't what stops this from happening? I mean I can make a normal picture a background, the .gif is viewable in the bb picture viewer just like a normal one but is not animated on the background. How is this possible? I am just confused that's all. My friends "dumb" phone does something cool like this and my "smart" phone doesn't!!! lol Sorry for the miss understanding.

    Thank you for your time and concern,
    Hank

    Your "smart" phone has wayyyy more capabilities than your friends "dumb" phone. Having an animated homescreen isn't a high priority though. If you want that get a razr or somethin~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~

    ok Gents,
    I completely understand that the 8320 is far superior to a phone along the lines of a razor. I LOVE my BB!!! However, I am simply asking.....What prevents the Blackberry Curve or any other BB from displaying a gif file as a wallpaper (background)? A simple question friends...

    Thank you for you patients,
    Hank

    P.S. luciferseamus how do I get the file to you to see what you can do with it along the svg lines?

    I'm not really sure y the blackberry won't do it, I first tried when I got my pearl, ever since then I found that you can make a theme with the animated image and then (if done properly) the animated image looks that much better.

    if you like you can E-mail me the file E-mail is in my profile
