Use Personal Photos as Screen Savers

On VVX 401/411, 500/501, and 600/601 phones, you can enable your phone to display your personal photos on a USB flash drive as a screen saver.

To set up a screen saver of your photos, you must set up certain screen saver settings, place your photos on a USB flash drive, and attach the USB flash drive to the phone.

The photos you use must have the following file type and size properties:
  • File type: BMP, JPEG, or PNG
  • Maximum size: 9999 x 9999 pixels

The phone can only display the photos as your screen saver when the USB flash drive is attached to the phone.

You can set up your phone to use a single photo to display or have all photos display in slide-show style. This is an alternative to setting up a screen saver, and it automatically starts each time your phone is idle a certain amount of time.

Procedure

  1. Place one or more photos onto a USB flash drive, either in the root directory or in a folder.
  2. Attach the USB flash drive to your phone.

    The USB icon image text is displayed on the status bar.

  3. Navigate to Settings > Basic > Preferences.
  4. Select Picture Frame > Folder, and enter the name of the folder you placed your photos in on the USB flash drive.
    If you placed the photos in the root directory of your USB flash drive instead of a folder, do not enter a folder name.
  5. Select Time Per Image, and enter the number of seconds you want each photo to display.
    You can enter a minimum of 3 seconds and a maximum of 300 seconds. The default is 5 seconds.
  6. Select Save.
    If the message “No pictures found” displays after you select Save, there are no photos in the folder you specified or in the root directory. Go back and make sure the information you entered is correct.
  7. Navigate to Settings > Basic > Preferences.
  8. Select Screen Saver > Screen Saver screen and select Enabled.
  9. Select Wait Time, and enter the number of minutes the phone should wait after no activity before displaying the screen saver.
    You can enter any time between one minute and of 9999 minutes. The default is 15 minutes.
  10. Select Save.

    Your phone displays the screen saver after the number of minutes you specified in the Wait Time field.

    Note: If your phone does not detect the USB device when you insert it into the USB port, the USB port on your phone may be disabled. Contact your system administrator for assistance using the USB port.
