Question Clock/Screensaver

Please Login to Remove!

A couple of questions regarding, clock and screensavers.
  1. Are there screensavers for Blackberry Cuve 8900?
  2. Are there screensavers for free?
  3. Can the clock be set to appear as a screensaver? For example, when phone is not used in x amount of time, or when the phone is locked.
  4. Are there any screensavers that can use the pictures in the SD Card, and randomly select different pictures?
  5. Besides the Analog, LCD, and LED options for displaying the Clock, are there any programs that allow additional views of the clock?

1. No.
2. No.
3. Yes, when plugged to the USB you can set the clock to appear, or just press the Clock icon to bring it up.
4. No.
5. No.

There are no screensavers for the BlackBerry because that would defeat the purpose of saving battery life. The black screen consume none (or little) juice.

I would recommend you not to use screen savers as it would drain out your battery a lot more quicker than usual. Screen savers use lot of processor clockspeed and LCD power, hence would use a lot of Battery.
