I've found the more themes you have, the slower overall...
If you know which theme(s) you want, I'd say stick to no more than 3 themes on device at once. When using the AppLoader, go one step further, and wipe/restore the berry when you have a selection of themes you want. I've found loading OTA seems to do more to slow you down that using the ALX.
BUT, once it's on your berry, you can backup-wipe-and reload and keep what you want. The storm "seems" to have an amazing amount of program memory, but I'd guess it's still built on a platform that idealizes 32-64mb of system memory. Our themes are by far the largest on any blackberry to date, most clocking in at a whopping 1.5-2mb is size. Add in Viigo cache, browser cache, the myriad of other fun applications us Storm users are playing with to get the most bang for our buck and keep our noses snobbishly upturned to iPhone, and it's bound to happen!
I have faith that the next couple OS updates will correct it, but for now, download Plazmic 4.7, build your dream-theme, and load it, and Precision, and smile.
