hi there,

i just tried it on mine, i took the photo, selected it from the sidebar and selected 'set as', the photo then appears with an orange box in the centre. is this what you get so far? after that you can 'drag' the corner of the orange box so that all the picture is selected and it should all be ok for your wallpaper.

let me know how you get on

Another option would be to use an app on the Market that allows you to set a whole picture as the wallpaper without having to "crop" it. I have used two apps from the Market and they work fine for me, one is "Wallpaper Set & Save" and "Crop Wallpaper". Hope this helps.

Basically go to the Market app on the phone, do a search for Crop wallpaper, when you find it click on the Install button. Once is installed open it from the App menu, you will see there all the pictures that you have on the phone, select the one you want to use as wallpaper, on the bottom left corner you will see a "Overall" button, click in it to have the whole picture instead of just part of it. Click on the Set as wallpaper button and done.

This might look like a lot but just do it step by step on your phone and I know you will be able to do it right away
