Depends on how involved you want to get.

If you just want to display it on your phone only, look your phone up in PhoneScoop's database and get the screen resolution.

Then get a vector (eps or illustrator) copy of your logo, open it with Photoshop and paste it onto a blank document that matches the pixel dimensions of your screen. Save it out as a JPG at a medium setting to make sure you don't overrun filesize limitations.

Also, note that certain phones (I want to say Nokia 3595? I forget) have non-square pixels so you'll need to either
a) use Photoshop CS/CS2's non-square pixel support and a format that supports it (png -- and not all phones support png) to compensate;
b) distort your artwork in the opposite direction by an equal amount so that the distortion is cancelled out by the different pixel aspect ratio.

Then, using whatever data connectivity you have (bluetooth, usb cable, net access), download the graphic to your phone and set it as your background.

If you're wanting to offer this for sale/as a courtesy download, the process is far more involved. You'll need a target phone list and their specs and repeat the above process for each & every device.

It takes a hell of a lot of work to do it well on a large scale and there are companies that specialize in doing large orders like that fast, and to exacting (or, sometimes, seemingly arbitrary) carrier specs.

Hope that answers your question. If it's just for your phone it should only take a minute or two.
