I have downloaded several wall papers from the market, but can't find them on my phone.  I have gone to menu - wallpaper, but all that shows is photos and wallpaper gallery.  I have read that you can go to programs and then to albums, but I don't have albums listed in my all programs.  How do I use the wall papers.  I have a Droid Eris using 2.1 firmware.

were they apps that contain wallpapers (or widgets)? or were they possibly add on packs (that go to an app or widget that you don't have)? can you give an example (by name) of one that you downloaded?

First off if the apps you downloaded were LIVE Wallpaper app, don't bother and just uninstall them.  LIVE wallpapers are NOT supported on the HTC Droid Eris.  Okay it can, but that involves voiding your warranty. Which CANNOT be discussed on this forum.

 

Other wallpaper apps, for example Backgrounds by Stylem Media or Zedge, you have to open up the app and save the wallpapers you want to your SD card.  Then to set the images as your wallpaper go to Menu > Wallpaper > Photos.  From there you select the (photo) album you want to select from.  For example, "Backgrounds" saves everything to a folder called "Backgrounds". Once in the folder, select the wallpaper, resize the image if necessary and select "Save".

 

Hope that helps.

Thanks for the help.  The NFL wallpaper says it is not an application.  How do I find it.  It says it is installed, but I can't find the wallpapers.

Can you tell us who wrote those wallpapers?

 

I check on the NFL Wallpapers.  There were two with that exact name.  The one with the better rating was by Black Hat Designs.  After looking at the permissions and downloading it, I can tell you that you can't use that wallpaper app with the HTC Sense that is loaded onto the Droid Eris.  You can access it through the Menu > Wallpapers only if you download a Home replacement app or change the defaults of HTC Sense and use the Stock Android Home as your launcher that is available in the Droid Eris.

 

When I checked the Disney choices, there were several.  One I did try.  This one you opened up and saved the wallpaper to your SD card and then you would have to select like a photo similarly to what I wrote before.

Thank you.  Guess I'll just delete the NFL wallpaper.  I did finally figure out the Disney.

also...i "believe" you have a "downloads" folder in your albums app (or gallery, or whatever your pictures app is called on the eris?). when you use many wallpaper apps to download new wallpaper, i think the image is sent to the "downloads" folder. from there, i believe you can long press the image and set it as your background??? not really sure, but here is a link if you really want to see some detailed options for wallpapers on your eris:
