Wallpaper Question - move or copy wallpaper back to photo album

Okay so I took a great pic of the kids and set it as my wallpaper. When I downloaded the pics to my imac, the wallpaper pic came across looking like the wallpaper (with date/time stamp and slider on top) I really want just the pic again, and I didnt see it in my iphoto as just the photo. Is there anyway I can copy or move the image back to my photo library on the phone?

Picture set as wallpaper deleted pic wallpaper remains

I took a photo and used it as wallpaper on my phone, then managed to delete the photo from the camera roll. However, it still shows as wallpaper.
I actually like the image, and would want to recover it if I could, even in the low res format it will now have. Does anyone know how I can access the image? It isnt in the wallpapers, nor the camera roll, and downloading all images to my laptop (using Image Capture) doesnt bring it in either. I guess it must be lodged internally somewhere!
I also upgraded to 3G, expecting to lose the image but it has transferred over to the new handset too. It *must* be in the phone somewhere!

iPhone 4 lines in smaller cities

I was wondering, what do you think the lines will be like in a city of maybe 20,000... I didnt reserve so I wanna make sure I get one. Anyone have any idea what lines may be like at the At&t store? I dont wanna show up at like 12 a.m. and have no one be there, and feel like a fool, lol.

iPhone 3G physical phone size is smaller than others

I have noticed that my iPhone 3G (16gb) is actually shorter (in size) than my wifes? I use the Inspiretech case and have noticed that my phone actually shifts around a little bit but when I put my wifes phone in there, it holds the phone correctly and doesnt shift. I also experienced this with my first case which was a DLO-Jam Jacket where the phone would slide down the jelly like case a little bit. My wifes phone did not do this in the Jam Jacket either. Has anyone experienced this before? I have modified my latest case by stuffing a couple pieces of folded up paper in it to make up the extra space. Is this something I should worry about? Will this forever be a neusance?

iPhone 4 angle of view much smaller when recording video than still photos

Just brought home my new iPhone 4, and Im blown away by the quality of the camera when compared to the iPhone 3G its replacing. My point-and-shoot Canon is basically out of a job.
One quirk Im puzzling over though. When taking still photos, the baseline field of view is quite wide, roughly approximating a 28mm lens, far wider than my 3Gs camera was. And the digital zoom is a nice touch. But when recording video, not only is the digital zoom unavailable, but the fixed angle of view is much narrower and more zoomed in, equivalent to a 50mm lens. Its as if the iPhone is applying some level of digital zoom to the image without telling us. In real world use, I found it made it much more difficult to take good video. I found myself constantly backing up to get everyone in the shot.
First, the am I an idiot check: is there a second digital zoom slider for video that Im missing somewhere? And if not, has anyone found a workaround for the difference in angle of view?
Thanks in advance for any help!

Why are pictures taken with iPhone 4s 16GB smaller in size compared to a 4s 32GB model

Why are picture taken with an iPhone 4s 16GB model smaller in size then pictures taken with a iPhone 4s 32GB model?

See the following examples:


16GB model:


32GB model:



Does the 16GB model use more compression? Is there some setting that I miss? Both images are taken with flash set to off, no HDR, same distance to subject, same light...

iPhone missing wallpaper

Greetings all,
I had a photo sent from a friend and had that set as the photo wallpaper for my iPhone. It was held in a photo album called Wallpaper photos.
Recently, I upgraded to the new firmware but there was an error and I had to restore my phone. Unfortunately this meant that this album was deleted.
However, when I switch the phone on, the photo still acts as my wallpaper but I cannot find it anywhere on the phone.
It is a photo precious to me and was wondering if anybody could help me recover this photo.

Rotating iPhone Wallpaper

Is there a way to hand select a number of personal photos and have them rotate as wallpaper each time you turn on your iPhone, the same way you can rotate desktop images each time your Mac comes out of sleep mode? If this isnt possible internally from iPhone, is there an App available that will allow you to do this?

Create ID wallpaper for iPhone

I enabled password access to the iPhone. If the phone were ever mislaid and someone wanted to contact the owner (me), they would never know who that is. How do I create a nice wallpaper or message so that the finder could return the phone to me. Please spell out the steps to create this wallpaper as it may not be elementary for me.

iPhone won't change my wallpaper

I have restored on itunes and even got the 2.0 update but it is still stuck on the Xbox logo! I bought the extended warranty if that helps. Will they give me a 3G because this is a software problem?

How to recover iPhone wallpaper photo

OK, I took a photo with my iPhone and then used it as my Wallpaper. I now cannot find the original photo. How do I access the location where the Wallpaper photo is stored so that I might retrieve it?
Going to Settings ==> Wallpaper ==> Wallpaper does not reveal the photo, nor is the photo in Camera Roll or Photo Library or any of my Synched Photo Folders. And finally, it is not in my iPhoto Library.
So this is the problem; I have one copy of the photo, it appears as my Wallpaper (I hate that PC terminology!) and I need to access it so I can keep a backup.
I tried several of the Access you iPod/iPhone apps but none of them can go to that mysterious secret location where your active wallpaper photo is hidden. Assistance would be appreciated. Thanks.

Question about default wallpaper settings on new iPhone

The default wallpaper for the iPhone 3GS is planet Earth. I was wondering if the option for camera roll (to use as wallpaper) is there by default...or is it added there after you take your first photo or only after you use a photo as wallpaper the first time.
Strange question, I know.

Hello All,


Im desperately looking for an old iphone 3gs wet pink stemmed rose with water drops wallpaper which got deleted from my phone and now I see that the wallpaper is no longer in the wallpaper gallery of my phone either.

I have come to understand that older wallpapers are probably deleted when the ios is updated or something but that wallpaper was very very special to me - if any of you has the wallpaper, I beg you to e-mail it to me via email or send me a link where I can download it from.


I have seached the web extensively, but Ive had no luck finding it. Ive seen some collages of the wallpaper but not the wallpaper alone in itself in clear good res. It was a very common wallpaper used on most iphones in 2010.


Fortunately, I have a screen snap but it has writing and time over it so I cant use it as a wallpaper, but it will give you an idea of the wallpaper Im looking for.


Here it is:



Waiting in anticipation.

Many thanks.


If you have a picture as your wallpaper, and as you scroll the pages of your apps, you will now see your picture behind your apps, if this is annoying you because you previously had the black background follow these steps. THIS WILL NOT DELETE YOUR PICTURE FROM YOUR MAIN (LOCKED SCREEN)
1.go to settings
2.click wall paper
3.when inside wall paper, you will see about 27 to choose from.
4.select a dark one, im using the 2nd one.
5.click the wallpaper you want, and click set.
6. finally click for HOME SCREEN.
Hope this helps you..........let me know
