    Does anyone know where to find more dialer skins for potala telly and then how to apply them? Or just how to install dialer skins on the PPC-6600 without any program like potala telly. What file extension do they use (example .exe, .abc. etc.)?

    Two suggestions
    1. Take a look at the top 10 active threads.
    2. Use the search button. Look for "skin".
    3. Check for other threads dealing with this topic prior to starting a new one.

    E, this isn't a new thread. Look at the OP date 12-11-2004. jlwii2000 did the right thing and posted in an already existing post.

    But do follow Ehud's other advice. Also check the stickies. Especially the must read thread for newbies.

    Bah, this round's on me!!

    Another skinnable dialer I found was D9. Might wanna check that out. I haven't dwelled in skin dialers myself but I'm checking out a few right now to see which one I like. I've already customized everything else on my phone, why not the dialer too?

    I went throught the newbie sticky before, and I searched for skin but I couldn't understand what everyone was talking about. This one post had a series of complex steps to make anything a skin dialer, and I am just not advanced enough for all that. Does there have to be a program??

    Disgruntledtech lays out EXACTLY what to do with his skinning program. The other post describes the dialer skin chooser in detail.

    Plus Elkay already told you to look at D9

    the xda skin chooser works for this phone. search my posts and you'll find links to the software.it's in the download section here. i found the answer not long after my original post.

    Whoa there. If you read attitude in my post then you are reading it wrong and I apologize for not being clear.

    I was asking what exactly do you want as far as information? Like I said DT lays out what to do once the skin is generated. You said you didn't understand something. So I guess you read my question wrong. What don't you get and how can we help?

    Welcome to the forums, and if you hang around long enough, you'll realize I am most certainly not the one with an attitude.

    Now, please, how about you loose the attitude and don't assume you know me or anyone else on this board. And instead of giving lip, give more detail on what you don't understand.

    [edited] What I wanted to know is if you could just download a file with a certain extension (.exe or something like that) and put it in a certain folder and have the dialer turn into that file. That is what I was wanting to know. Thanks for the help.

    complicated programs?

    I'd prefer to check a few options and get more customized output than go paying good money for 13 gif files in a ZIP

    BTW, I doubt any of those display in landscape mode. if you want to send me 2.99 via paypal I'll go find you a public domain picture of tropical fish, resize it and run it through my script for you.
