The most popular, for various reasons, is OTA installation. That is, you click on a link and it downloads and starts the installation procedure for you. All you have to do is click one more button and it will install. It will not switch to the theme. You will still have to go into OPTION > THEMES for that. You may also at times find them in .zip format on a particular website. In that case you will have to download to your PC, unzip and install with DM.

Using real words in forum posts is greatly appreciated. Not sure what the word "wots" means exactly.

DM = BlackBerry Desktop Manager software

And here is how you install a theme using Desktop Manager (taken from my site):

1. Download the Zip file. (download link is at the bottom of every theme post).
2. Unzip the file (remember where you unzip it to).
3. Open Desktop Manager and connect your Blackberry.
4. Select Application Loader.
5. Select Add/Remove Applications.
6. Select Browse and navigate to the folder where you unziped the theme to.
7. Select the theme (File name is always the same as the theme name).
8. Select Next, Next, Next.
9.Done (now simply activate it by selecting Options>Theme on your Blackberry).

How do you do it by OTA installation? After I click the link and the download completes, then what? It isn't in the theme's folder.
Thanks
