    True or False: Using an image file that must be downsized to fit the device screen for wallpaper causes extra processing that wastes battery power.

    Don't know but why would you use an oversize wallpaper to begin with? You can use freeware programs like Irfan to resize the wallpaper with a few simple clicks and then load it to the device.

    I sometimes use the BB camera to shoot a nice photo that I decide to use as a wallpaper, as is. It never before occurred to me that I should resize it to save battery life. In fact, battery life has been so good on my 9780 and previous BBs that I didn't give it any thought. But I'll be switching to a 9900 soon, so the question is suddenly relevant.

    Never heard of such a thing. I've used everything from low-res images off the web to 6Mb photos from a digital camera, and not seen any affect on the CPU.

    BTW, that's on a 9650, so if it doesn't have an impact, the 99xx certainly won't. I've done the same with my old 8100.

    False. This was addressed in another thread.

    By way of example, attached is what I'm using on my 9930 unaltered.

    Thanks. I missed that thread, but now I've read it. I'll experiment when I have the chance. It's at least possible that the OS 7 software, or some versions of it, aren't handling the images as they should.
