    Apple's early marketing schemes always used the clownfish wallpaper, why is it not in the built-in selection? :confused:

    Anyone could find it online, I'm curious to know why Apple's OWN wallpaper used in their OWN marketing pictures isn't in the selection.

    I haven't checked this, but I've heard that the ringtone used in the commercials isn't a default ringtone either.

    Anyone know if the wallpaper came with the 1.x firmware?

    It's a ringtone, but it isn't the default.

    It was not in any version of the iPhone OS, beta or final release.

    I don't believe it's there at all, let alone default.

    It has never been on any iPhone version but very easy to add to your phone if it means that much to you.

    Actually, yes it was on the original iPhone when it was released. I remember using it then. I'm not certain when it disappeared, but I do remember there was discussion when it did.

    Apple knew you were a sushi lover and instantly deleted it from you phone.

    Just be grateful you're all about saving the planet.

    Well, I'm pretty confident. Did you get yours near the original release date? Mine was about three days later. It's possible it disappeared with very first OS update, but I don't recall when that came.

    And I am sure I can't prove my recollection accurate, but it is pretty strong, and I do remember finding it again on the web after it disappeared.

    I think Apple ended up not using it because of a copyright issue.

    I got the original iPhone when it came out, complete with firmware 1.0.

    Definitely did NOT include this wallpaper.

    I remember downloading it and putting it on my phone so I could have it though.

    Interesting choice by Apple.

    At any rate, I'm using the clownfish wallpaper now. :)
