    I've searched everywhere and can't figure out how to get the wallpaper to fit on the entire screen. It always makes me crop it smaller. I've tried using imagess that are the size of the entire screen as well, nothing works.

    When you select an image to use as a wallpaper there is an orange box that shows up around the image..... drag the corners of the box to to expand the cropped area. This way you can get the whole image on your background.

    Actually I do that but it doesn't allow me to pull it over whole image it limits me to a smaller box, it is frustrating.

    Sounds like the image you want to use is too big.

    It will only let you crop to an area equal to the size of 960x854, since it spans across the equivalent of 2 home screens (even though there are 3) 480 wide x 854 tall * 2 = 960x854.

    My images look crummy because the orientation changes the cropping. Is there a way to use dif pics for dif orientations?

    No, you can only use 1 wallpaper for everything.

    There isnt even an app to fi xthis? Because I am being frustrated because some of my favorite pictures do not translate into backgrounds well- Peoples faces are cut off from the chin up in horizontal mode or you cant see everyone in vertical mode, etc. I wish it would let me do the cropping for vertical vs horizontal modes.
