    Noob Question on Wallpaper

    Advertisement



    What is the difference between Wallpaper and a Theme?
    When I select a photo taken by the 8300 and select "Set as Home Screen" I assume that it means the photo will then be the Wallpaper. But where/when does the wallpaper appear ?

    Thanks in advance

    It appears as your homescreen -- where all the icons are located

    When you set an image as your wallpaper, you will see that image behind everything. And the Theme is all your icons, colors, fonts, etc. So you can set different wallpapers with different themes as well.

    Hmmm - that's kinda what I thought - but it doesn't seem to be the case - ( I tried, but the baseline Theme picture does not change) - could it be because I am an Enterprise User ?

    Is there a setting that locks the Theme background?

    Was it there, then you changed Themes so it reset the wallpaper?

    I like the one where the pilot couldn't get the radio to work. He stated that everytime he put it into the official position it would die. When asked about it he said, yes it was broken and got mad. When pressed further (as we could not duplicate the error), it seems that it died everytime it was put into the official (read as OFF to everyone else) position. When we pointed this out, he withdrew his rant and complaint. User error can be a hard one to troubleshoot.

    Back to the reason for the initial question - Apparently when the IT folks that manage our Blackberry service set up the default splash page (Wallpaper) they did not want anybody messing with their handiwork. So, they protected the Theme. Once I changed Themes, I was able to change the Wallpaper. Va-walla

    You may want to check with the IT dept and makes sure that they are cool with the change. Some companies get real anal and changing things without authorization are a no-no and can lead to termination. Just food for thought, but glad that you got it worked out.

    I've seen that also. As an ex Naval Avionics Technician, there were many time I wanted to sign-off repetitive "could not duplicate" gripes about the radios, from the same pilot, with "Short between the Headset", but always thought better of it.
