Ok first of sorry if this is a repeat: I have no access to a desktop right now and there is no search feature on the wap site that I can find! To the problem at hand:

On a few occasions I have purchased premium themes and for some reason they do not show up in the themes list after installation. Everything goes fine with the download, etc and it shows up in the applications/modules list but not in the themes menu for selection. This only happens with a couple of themes (others have installed and used just fine). The author suggests wiping and re-installing the os but not only have I done that relatively recently it seems a bit excessive. This isn't windows after all.

Can anyone suggest a solution short of a major overhaul? Thanks

Alltel Pearl 8130, 17MB free, os 4.3.0.97

Sorry, I forgot to mention the battery pull as part of the installation process. Of note I have to pull my battery several times a day to re-establish network connection :-\

Yes which mrkes it that much more frustrating. Everything seems to go well apart from its absence from the theme menu :(

My recollection tells me that you are describing a situation where the theme is not compatible with your device. I suspect that you did not install a theme for an 8130 device.

... or that, like me, you may be trying to install a theme that requires the "stock" dimension themes to be installed as well... Did you remove these themes in order to save memory?
