    Complete Q Newbie

    Hey all...

    I have been lurking all over since I found this site and to be honest I am such a Q noob that much doesnt yet make sense to me... (but it will someday!)

    I have inherited my hubbie's Q as his office has provided him with a blackberry. He disabled my data package (bastage!) but I am enjoying the other features as it allows me to forgo my pda.

    So... I want to start with the homescreen. I have seen some layouts I like here, but not necessarily with the image I prefer. If I download something from here can I change the photo? Or do I just ask the wizards here to "whip me up" the homescreen of my dreams?

    In awe,
    Jaz

    you can do either
    if you have an image in mind just resize it to 320x213 and change it out
    or if you dont know how or dont feel comfortable im sure our homescreen designers here could put something together!

    Well...I AM surprised to find NO homescreen designs with a Lord of the Rings wallpaper...

    Am I the ONLY fan left? :)

    Not really finding what I want...and too much other crap to do to spend more time on it for now...

    What about this one?

    Simple homescreen is all I need... I have nothing fancy added (yet!)
    date/time
    profile
    calendar
    txt msgs
    quick launch icons

    at the wizards' convenience, of course!

    I though that movie was great, however they focused too much attention on certain charaters while portraying others as evil. But that is just my unbiased opinion.

    Unbiased indeed (gollum, gollum). Oh excuse me, I have a bit of a cold. :)

  10. I ain't a wizard, but I will give it a shot...give me a bit. I am not a flashy homescreen guy. I like it simple.

    BTW I don't use data either and it doesn't bother me.

    Thanks Tony, I like simple too...and as to the data...well I am afraid I AM bitter... :wink: but as my computer is all of six steps from my phone I can't (YET) rationalize my need for it!

    It hadn't crossed my mind to do a LOTR screen, but it has now.

    Any particular character/book/scene I should look for? I've a few ideas to search through, but nothing solid yet.

    Oh yeah... Welcome aboard.

    For me...yeah... I am attempting to kick my WOW habit (sigh) but my main char was Galadriel. Queen of the Elves...naturally! Maybe Lothlorien?

    ...and be gentle with me, I am a Q virgin. :laugh2:
