3 SkypePhone S1 Wallpaper

How do I make background wallpaper for the SkypePhone S1?

The SkypePhone S1 from 3 allows you to add custom background wallpaper. You can use jpg, gif or png files as wallpaper for your phone.

The full screen size is 176 pixels wide by 220 pixels high.

However, the main screen on the phone always shows the soft-key panel (the Launcher and Planet3 buttons). This means the background wallpaper dimensions can only be 176 pixels by 200 pixels. You should remember this when creating your own wallpaper for the 3 SkypePhone.

Here are some examples using the Otherlinks site theme.

Greeting Wallpaper

This is our Greeting (startup) wallpaper.

Shutdown Wallpaper

This is a simple screen so you can see when the phone is shutting down. We chose blue to complement the colour of the keypad backlights.

You can save these images to your desktop, then upload them to your SkypePhone S1 via USB or Bluetooth.

Remember, if you create your own wallpaper for the phone, the Greeting and Shutdown screens have 176x220 pixels, but the main wallpaper has only 176x200 pixels.
