I have read some topics that was created in the Discussion section, So 8520 cannot handle OS6? If so how can people get OS6 on 8520, seen some on Youtube

They can't. Don't believe everything you see on Youtube.
OS6 is not available for the 8520.

They have some nice, free ones in app world for the 85xx. Some of them look to be pretty well designed.

Using "Google" and the phrase "8520 OS6 Theme" I found this for you..

OS6 Like Theme for 8520 | Blackberry World - Better Than Ever

There are many, many hits for that search phrase. Took like 5 seconds.

I can't really say how it will function as I have never used it. It only changes the look of your BB, doesn't change your OS. I don't see how a theme could break your phone.

Great minds think alike.

Themes don't break your phone. If you don't like it, you can delete it.

I agree that generally themes won't "break" your phone, but some will make it run like junk depending on how well they were developed.
