Default 9700 Themes

Please Login to Remove!

Hi, I received my 9700 (Vodafone UK) on Friday and found that the phone only has one installed theme; Precision Zen (Active). While this has some fine wallpapers, I also like the classic black blackberry theme, as I'm sure I've seen the 9700 with this theme in publicity adds. Can anyone tell me where I can source/download this? Many thanks.

The Precision Zen theme is the only BlackBerry branded theme installed on the 9700. You will need to search for 3rd party themes if you want something different.

I was able to load the 8900 "U" theme that I liked. Worked for me.

pimpmyberry.com has loads of great themes.

NJBlackBerry, I have read somewhere here about funky 9700 behavior when using 8900 themes. I take it it's mostly a non-issue?

I concur...as I also used my 8900 theme, and it's works flawlessly on the 9700. I use the Stock Weather Plus for the 8900 with my own wallpaper.

Thanks for plugging my theme zGuy, glad you like it!

Also, tried a test with my old 8900 that the wife is now using. I was able to load the 9700 theme I made on her 8900 running 5.0.0.348 with no issues. Only thing I noticed that wasn't exactly the same was when transitioning from homescreen to icon menu it didn't use the fade effect. Otherwise even the lock screen animation came over with no trouble!

Just thought I'd throw that out there, it's nice to see some compatibility between devices with themes..

Tour themes work as well.. I have both 8900 and tour themes on my 9700...

The transitions effect in the new builder only work on OS 5.0...
