Question How to install animated backgrounds??

well i found many posts on people showing there backgrounds with downloads and stuff but they never explain how to install or use them. i was wondering if anyone know a post to re direct me to or website that could help me install them. or just tell me here if you feel like it.


(on the side note can the Zio even use animated backgrounds?)

ya, they are called live wallpapers and there is a whole mess of them on the market. As far as installing, they install the same way everything from the market does. When you want to use them click the "menu" and then "wallpaper" and choose "live wallpapers" from the list. Ther is also a website where you can surf these wall papers.

this is very odd. when i go to my menu and hit wallpaper only 3 things show up Gallery/ID Wallpapers/Wallpapers and they arnt in any of them.

Its weird because i did install them just fine but they don't seem to be anywhere on the phone?

That is odd, and thats the only way I know of to activate them. Someone else who actually has the phone will have to help you, sorry about that.

You should have live wallpapers. They were preloaded on the 2.2 update. You may have to redo the update.

Of course Sprint might not have included the live wallpapers in their update.
