Re: BBM Wallpaper Request

"Well iphones don't have BBM either".
This is what I mean.
I wasn't saying it does - I was using iPhone's WhatsApp as an example of the wallpaper.

I haven't looked so see if it has that feature. Maybe it does. But I mostly use BBM.

Re: BBM Wallpaper Request

Right. I never said that you said that iPhone's have BBM.

I was just commenting that iPhones do not.

 

And., they don't.

Re: BBM Wallpaper Request

Oh, why?

 

because you said the iPhone does it beautifully.

It may be distracting, but that other phone does it really beautifully. Sets it apart. Tho not entirely necessary, would be a "nice to have".

There are many things the BlackBerry can do beautifully the iPhone cannot.

And likewise, there are somethings the iPhone can do (like guide one to a wrong location via Apple Maps) that the BlackBerry does not do so well. :smileywink:

Re: BBM Wallpaper Request

True that.


I guess post #5 is the accepted solution to your question?

Re: BBM Wallpaper Request

So you know that no App exists that allows you to do it, or you are not aware of one?

I know that you cannot do it manually with the default BBM application. But that wasn't the question.

That's not what you asked.

You asked:

Hi

 

Is there a free or cheap App that enables me to assign a wallpaper from my album, to the background of BBM?

 

I know WhatsApp on the Apple devices does, so wondered if it can on BBM.

 

I did find one app that meant you could assign three themes, but then it cost to change that to your own.

 

Simon


 This app will change the skin on your BBM. For free. You get three themes.

If you want to upgrade to the version that allows you to use your own photo, it costs $0.99, but I am assuming it's the same one you tried, sounds like the exact same app.

 

Personally, I consider $0.99 cheap. But it appears from your initial post you've already ruled it out.

 

And those are themes for skins for BBM, not wallpaper.

 

So, no, again, you can't change the wallpaper of BBM from your album. You can however, buy a .99¢ app which does so.
