    Well, I don't see why you need to. They're built into the OS, so removing them won't give you any more disk space.

    I don't recommend doing that. Deleting stock files on your phone is like playing with fire.

    He didn't ask for an opinion, people, he asked how he could do this.
    So I'll tell him

    Basically, FTP into your phone or use iPhonebrowser (which ever is easiest for you; google iphonebrowser if you don't know what I mean)

    And navigate to //Library/Wallpaper

    Then, delete all the images in there (back them up first. You really should..)
    And the .THM files if you wish. (These are the small thumbnails that you will see)

    Thank you Conn118!

    iphonebrowser is sick! I love it!

    i didnt actually delete the wallpapers, i just went ahead and replaced them. too scared to see what the ramifications would be if i went ahead and deleted the files.

    Now even though you can delete the wallpapers once you need to restore they will be back, right?
    I mean they are built into the OS aren't they?
    Thanks
