1. Go to Options>Advanced Options>Applications and see if you can find the themes in the applications list. If so, do a battery pull for about 30 seconds , then check the Themes menu again. (You may have to do this a couple of times to get the themes visible in the themes menu).

2.If you don't see them in the applications list, try re-installing them via Desktop Manager.

The 8350i will not load previous themes made for the 83XX series. They have to be written for the OS 4.6, which can only be done with plazmic themebuilder ver 4.7.

For the 4.6 ones, apparently yes. For others, no. I have a Verizon 8330 with 4.5 and am using themes for 4.2 and 4.3, as well as for 4.5.
