    I just got the eris a couple weeks ago, and then the trackball died so verizon sent me a new one. Now on the new phone when I try to change my homescreen wallpaper, it always wants to zoom in on the image.

    I'm not sure how to explain it, but it will let me use the full width, but not the full length while looking at the phone with the buttons on the bottom. So I have an image that is 320x480, and it wants to crop it down to 200x200 for example. It zooms in and makes it a square, instead of a rectangle like the screen is. I just want the wallpaper to be what it looks like when the image first opens from the photo album app. But as soon as I try to make it a wallpaper it wants to zoom in and make the photo look dumb.

    On the first eris I had I was able to use the full image without it shrinking and zooming in. What the heck am I doing different, I feel ******ed. Am I using the wrong image size (320x480)? Any help?

    Well for one thing because of the way the home screen works its not a rectangle like you are thinking. When you swipe the image moves a little to the left and right depending on were you are going. The stock image size is 960 x 800 and the phone will scale whatever image you are using to that size scale. Hope this helps. If you want example images you can download the wallpaper from my other forum post http://androidforums.com/htc-droid-eris/48559-want-piece-nexus-one.html. These were pulled from the Nexus one but will work on the eris.
