Re: E5 problem pls help

I really don´t know, but under settings-themes-options maybe you have alternative for this?

Have you checked the manual?

As you've noticed, your phone supports animated gifs in the browser and in the image viewer, but not as wallpaper.  I don't think any Symbian phone ever has.

 

The only solution I know is AnimSprite.  See http://cumaini.com/2011/04/free-download-application-animsprite-displaying-animated-images-homescree... .  I don't think it supports full, animated 320x240 images exactly, as much as it supports a smaller animation with a transparent background.  The result is still impressive.  Cut and paste the "Download Link" from the page, and then install the "selfsigned" version.  And keep an eye on your battery, in case the animation makes it drain faster.  Hope that helps!

Re: E5 problem pls help

You should have preloaded on your phone so whenyou download a gif image of the web is just setting up as a wallpaper, it can happen like to me where something hacked onto the phone and sometimes hides my original apps which means the phone wont do what is supposed to unless you format the phone and memory card and then update the phone. Is a headache, lots of work and liek to myself happened where I lost everything, is not very nice at all... just do as I said or go to ovi and download a scren saver which will set up automatically, or others, try and check my other replies to similar posts where I present other options. but this happened to me and was not nice, that is why I could not see my animated wallpapers:smileysad: but now the phone seems ok, hope it stays that way. best of luck.

Re: E5 problem pls help

manual is not very helpful to be honest.nokia symbians do display animated wallpapers based on gif images, if not is because the device is hacked with a virus which hides phone functions and is a massive trouble as you lose everything on there if you format it to get what you need back as you lose other stuff if you dont back it up prior that happens. I would like to know how to prevent that actually, is the only thing that gets to me because every device is vulnerable to that considering not everyone is empowered to use determined resorts.

Re: E5 problem pls help

yep, sadly you have to format your device, I hope ou back up your stuff, I did not and lost most of my fav stuff:smileysad: so yes, format and then update, you should be able to get what you need back on there, if not contact nokia for free or your phone operator... best of luck.
