I'm trying to use a custom wallpaper as a lock-screen wallpaper on the iPhone. Can I do that without jail breaking the phone?

Yeah you sure can! Find the picture in the Photos app, press the menu button in the bottom left corner and press Use as Wallpaper.

You can also use the stock wallpapers if you go to settings> wallpaper.

Another tip: You can take a screenshot by pressing the home button and lock button at the same time. This will save a photo of what is currently on your screen to your camera roll. which you could use as a wallpaper just like a photo
