While Windows Phone 7 doesn't have nearly the customization features Windows Mobile has, you can make your Windows Phone your own by using custom wallpapers on the lock screen.

Windows Phone 7 comes preloaded with about eighteen photos that can be used as your wallpaper plus a hand full of solid colors. You also have the option of using one of your images as the wallpaper. You can find your wallpaper options in the Settings Menu under "Lock & Wallpaper" or you can set a picture in your Galleries under the options menu for the individual image.

WPCentral.com member Melk has started a discussion over in the forums asking everyone to share their wallpapers. As Melk mentions, a discussion we haven't seen much of.  We've pulled a few from the discussion above and share Melk's curiosity.

So, head on over to this discussion and share your wallpaper or comment on what others are using.

  • Haha, great timing! I actually recently started a website for Windows Phone 7 wallpapers. A little shameless self-plug here: http://wpwallpaper.com Take what you want, and feel free to submit yours via the submit link on the site!
  • Some very nice images. "Mar's Meteors" stands out as does "The Back".
  • Haha thanks! I strongly concur on "The Back" ;) Tired of all those wallpaper sites with low-res tacky looking wallpapers, so hopefully my site would turn out better.
  • It's indeed a very nice collection you've acquired there! Nice initiative! :) I myself made a WP7 wallpaper pack with various of my photographies. If anyone's interested they can be downloaded from my deviantART-account:

  • Nice photos! Do you mind if I put some of those on my website? I'll link them back to your deviantART profile :)
  • I wouldn't mind at all! In fact I'd be happy if you did. =) Thanks, by the way!
