I have a new phone. my screen saver photos have always included my dh and my boys always. However this week I got round to adding a new screen saver photo and I it was a photo of my 2 boys looking very happy during a family day out at a farm last week. A lovely photo. I didn't leave dh out out of spite or any reason at all its just a nice photo we both said we love. Anyway I came down this morning and discovered the screen saver photo has been changed to a photo with dh in it too. It's not even a nice photo he looks grumpy in it. Not one I would have chosen. I'm annoyed about it aibu?

Maybe he's a lot more upset to be left off than you/he realises?
He shouldn't have changed your background, granted, but perhaps it's worth finding a nice picture of all of them, rather than leaving him out?
It is petty, but I can also see why it'd hurt a bit to be left out, even if it felt too stupid to talk about. Maybe he thought changing it back was preferable to starting a conversation and feeling like an idiot?

I wouldn't make a huge deal of it tbh. I'd just change it back and in passing just mention 'Oh, any particular reason you changed the screen saver? I've changed it back to the original one.
He's not one of those who will also go through your every text, is he?

Well, it is childish of him. But if you really have always had a picture of all of you, then maybe he has associated that with feeling good, and feels hurt for reasons that he probably can't explain very well. Hence swapping it to one which meets your previous criteria, but has him looking grumpy.
I'm guessing he's not someone who finds it easy to talk about emotions?
