Hi everyone, i just got my it today and have tried mutiple times to set the wallpaper. However, it just isn't showing on the home screen. Is there a way to solve this?

This is normal - your wallpaper shows only on the lock screen (where you "slide to unlock" after pressing the home button or the sleep/wake button). You'll need to jailbreak your iPhone to get your wallpaper to show on your home screen - see our iPhone Modifications forum for more information. There's a great stickied post there that describes what jailbreaking is.
