I know the personal banner is available on most verizon phones, but don't think the Android phones have the option. Usually you would just go to settings-->display-->banner

I suppose if you have a graphic editing program you can create a background with text on it.  You will have to do it by pixel because the image will cover all of your screens and should be set to not scroll.

Someone would have to make a screen widget for it... surprisingly enough... there isn't one in the market.

 

Hmmm... maybe I'll make one! :smileywink:

it should be easy to make an app. Person should start at http://www.android.com/

 

Download the SDK, pay the $25 one-time fee (if you want to distribute via the Market), and have at it.

It helps if you're  familiar with Java programming.

I'm always interested in testing.  I just have to find room on my phone.  LOL.  I guess I should really get to learning some programming huh?

IF you point your Android broswer here, it should install. However, you'll have to uninstall using Setting-->Applications.
