    Can someone please tell me how to use an image in one of the wallpaper threads and set it to my lock screen? I tried the search and didnt find an answer. Thanks

    Go to "Settings" --> "Wallpaper" --> pick any of the available options from there --> select the wallpaper you want --> "Set" --> "Set Lock Screen".

    But before doing the above, you'll have to download & save the desired wallpaper onto your iPhone. You can do so by browsing to the particular post with the photo using a web browser such as Safari, tap & hold on the photo to bring up the "save" screen & then save the wallpaper.

    Good luck. :)

    Can't you have someone just copy and paste it from their iPhone and send it to you in iMessage? Or is this not allowed per Apple agreement?
