you can send them from another phone via photo message, although I am not sure if you can use recieved pics for wallpaper or not.

you can try getting a data cable on trademe, or from apt (pccard.co.nz) and using APTs datapilot (assuming they have a version for your phone), or using the free 'Bitpim' software available on the net (Google it).

if you have the pic saved on your pc, upload it using the Sprint focus server at http://www.sprintusers.com/focus/

NB: In the PCS Phone Number field just enter 0000000000, and don't forget to select your phone from the drop down menu so it resizes the phone to your pic.

The tool will return a url like http://www.sprintusers.com/focus/d/12345678.gcd

Open your WAP browser, select the browser menu (prob right hand soft key), select 'go to URL', type the given full url, and click ok.
The pic should download to your phone.

Be aware that the charges for this is $0.05/kb ie a 50kb file will cost $2.50.

Also be aware that data may be being transferred even though its giving an error (might transfer then be unable to save or something...), and this would cost you money (worst case scenario on 50kb trying four times is that it costs you ten bucks.)

Sometimes its easier to buy them from Telecom WAP portal....

if bitpim cant then you might be out of luck sorry. the 2300 is a low end phone. if it was a camera phone then you would have better luck...
