    i don't think you'll be able to as iphone wasn't really designed for gifs... it only works on pngs and static gifs and such..
    suppose a way to animate it woujld be to convert to video format and use vwallpaper.
    or save each frame as an image
    and use wallpaper rotate (think thats what its called) on a high refresh rate. (:
    Being an i can be a lot of pressure. you have to live right up to the small point.

    What you can do is create an html file that embeds the image (in your case a .gif) as if it was a web page and name this html file LockBackground.html. It should work but it will run slowly and you will need to limit the amount of frames in the gif to about 15 or so maybe less.
