Thread: How To Theme iPhone Spotlight Text

  1. #1
    Default How To Theme iPhone Spotlight Text
    Hi, is there a way to change the spotlight text on the iPhone to say: Search "My Name's" iPhone 3GS instead of just Search iPhone? I do not mean the background image/wallpaper. I am talking about the text entry box on the spotlight screen

    I have seen pics of phones with this done but have been unable to speak with any of them, any help is appreciated

    A wallpaper will change my entire background. I am talking about the text that shows in the spotlight search box that says "Search iPhone" and when you begin typing it goes away and starts showing what you are typing. Wallpaper.png is a static image that will not change
