    This is a strange request.. but I took a pic with my GS2 (sprint) Epic Touch....and I set it as my lock wallpaper...but my SD card got erased...and my lock screen wallpaper pic that I took is still there..I like the picture.. and want to email and save it so its not lost.. how can I do that? I cant seem to find where the pic is saved anywhere on the phone?

    thanks

    If your photo was saved to the card DCIM folder, by default, then your card was erased somehow, as you said in your post above, your photo is gone. If you saved the photo to your lock screen prior to your card being erased, the lock screen photo is saved to device cache.

    You may be able to access device cache if you are rooted.......

    Yeah I'm pretty sure you'd need root in order to get it. It's part of your Android system now without the original image file.

    Deactivate weather, clock etc. and take a screenshot. Think its the only possibility to save the picture without root rights.
