The above hand set came to me not consistently working. I suspected an old tired battery.
Fitted new one and its now working fine. Got one that 2450 mwh.
It was locked to vodafone, thats been removed as im on Virgin ,net in the UK.
as pay as you go. When it originally worked intermittently the home screen had the background picture with an overlay of just 3 lines of text.
1. phone contacts
2. short messages
3. some thing I cant recall what it was.
since activating it with the new battery, the home screen has a repeat in portrait mode the layout in landscape. Dont want that. IE all the icons
How can I get it back to its original home screen? with 3 lines of text? overlaying the picture?
cant find anything in the user guide or in any menu item.
Its my first smart phone and am getting to know it.
Texting tho is difficult. im used to the big buttons on the nokia communicator 9210i.
thatsStill the easiest phone to use.
Dont need anything else at the moment.
As I use my laptop for email etc.
hope someone can point me in the right direction.
thanks
Ted

Did you try pulling the battery to reset the BB?. Unless the new battery is causing this, which I doubt, something may have corrupted the theme. Try changiing the theme and see if it look ok. Then switch back.
