Part of BlackBerry Pearl For Dummies Cheat Sheet

Like your desktop PC, you can customize your BlackBerry Pearl to have personalized wallpaper for your Home screen. Set an image to be your BlackBerry Home screen background by using the BlackBerry Media application, as follows:

  1. From the Home screen, press the Menu key and select Media.

    The Media application opens, and you see several categories: Music, Video, Ringtones, and Pictures.

  2. Select the Picture category.

    Doing so brings up two folders named Preloaded Media and Device Memory. The Preloaded Media folder stores pictures that came with your BlackBerry Pearl, and the Device Memory folder stores pictures that you took with your camera.

  3. Select the Preloaded Media folder.

    You see all the pictures in the folder. If you’ve taken pictures with the BlackBerry Pearl camera, you might want to use the Device Memory folder instead.

  4. Select the picture you want to use for your home screen background.

    The selected picture appears in full-screen view.

  5. Press the Menu key and select Set as Home Screen Image.

    The picture is set as your new Home screen wallpaper.

  6. Press and hold the Escape key to return to the Home screen to see the result.
