    Or... Go to app store and download live lock themes... It's for the lock screen. Got loads on there.... It's brilliant. Uninstalled live lock screen tho as it kept my 1520 on "resume" for ages

    Go to settings > start+theme and you will se an option for a start background. We probably will never get live wallpapers because it is not metro. Just imagine scrolling tiles with a moving image. That would make people sick

    Backgrounds are silly and pointless on the Start Screen. If you reallllly need an ugly distracting image behind tiles/icons, making them impossible to read, go to Android. :P

    On the Start Screen or Lock Screen?

    The lock screen is a perfect place for images. Start Screen, is pretty silly.

    From a design perspective, it's very counter effective. The images with slight colorations are fine. But anything with a wide variety of colors and contrast is going to make the UI much more complex and hard to read.
