Please Login to Remove!

A lot of people were commenting on the Cingular branded Theme for the 8700. For those of you who have received and are using the 8700, which theme are you using?

I'm using the "Cingular" theme for now. Easiest on the eyes...wish I could move the "Memo" app out of the applications folder and put it on the main screen...

I can't remember it off the top of my head but look at the 7200 shortcuts and try those on the 8700. Most should work. I don't have mine yet, but I will update this list when I do.

Boy, I agree with trstack. I would LOVE to move Memo from apps folder to main screen. I read through the 7200 notes and found nothing...most likely since the folder WAS on the 7290 home screen.
Please...someone...there must be a way!

Thanks.

Since I use the MemoPad app quite a bit, I've assigned the left side key to launch the memopad application. Now that I'm writing this I'm thinking I may put the centre button to memopad and side button to internet shortcuts.

You can customize the left side key and centre button? I guess the guy I spoke to in the store didn't know his stuff. He said the buttons were pre programmed and couldn't be changed. How do you customize the left key and centre button? I am so impatient I want the 8700 now but I am going to have to be patient as hard as that is.

Just switched to BB Insight Icon.
By doing that, I could put both Memo and AskMeNow icons on home page.

I am using a theme I created while waiting for my handset to arrive. But as usual I got too complicated on the first try and it's a little hard to read. I used too fancy a script for most of the text items and am now trying to get it corrected.

BB Insight - Icon. Played with them all. This is the most usable for me. I miss having a dedicated Compose icon, but I'll deal with it.

I use Dimension Icon but with my own background. Kind of like the Cingular orange and blue thing but with higher contrast...

Well, if you look on the background images thread for the 8700 you'll notice I posted a "Star Wars Clone Trooper" that was formatted to fit the 320x240 screen. I originally was going to use the Cingular Theme but then when I discovered you could change the themes easily I went with the "BB Dimension-List" Simply because the white and blue go VERY well with the Clone Trooper, and the list gets all the ugly icons out of the way so I can see the Clone Trooper Better Check it out!

I'm using the Cingular theme; I like the minimalist look. I am looking forward to them putting out more options, though. If you use the wheel you can get a "download themes" menu, but it's still not ready.

If your a minimalist, then simply forego the icons and use the list! It's very clean, and I think it's better suited for quick access to the programs I use.

Can you tell me what askmenow is? Is it a pay service or is it free...I saw it on the BB site for mobile but didn't pay any attention to it.
