Theme Question
This might be the dumbest question asked on here... so bare with me, I am new to the BlackBerry World. I am seeing lost of posts about themes. Can someone tell me what is a theme exactly. On my phone (Bold), I only have 2 choics it lookslike th eonly difference is the backgroud picture. I wouldlove to find a way to have more then 6 icons on my homepage.. that is what I am hoping for. Sorry if this is a basic question.

I'm also thinking if I would load the CD that came with my phone, I would learn things a lot faster. Maybe tonight, I'll do that!

Thanks for any help!

You're on the right track. Themes control the background images, icons, notification alerts, etc. They give the device it's personality - so to speak.

Check out BlackBerry FAQ - BlackBerryFAQ and stinsonddog's tips. TONS of great info there.

Think of it this way: do you want your BlackBerry looking like an iPhone with its design and icons? There's a theme for that. Themes cover background images, number of icons you see on your home screen, to To the placement of those icons (on the left vertically, across the bottom horizontally, or in L-fashion across both vertical and horizontal.

A theme is the skin/graphical collection that changes the look and feel of your BlackBerry's GUI (The user interface). It changes everything from the wallpaper, to icon layout, to signal meters.

The CD should have some manuals on it that will give you a better understanding of your BlackBerry.
