Default 8700 themes......

Please Login to Remove!

I am just curious as to what you other 8700 users have set as your default theme? I run the Wave-Icon theme and i like it ok. Is there a place where i can view screen shots of other 8700 theme with OTA download links?
Thanks

I have one theme available for the 8700, Bliss 2.1. I think most people that use it really like it. You can see screenshots on my web site: http://rogersmj.com/tech/blackberry. OTA downloads are available here: http://mobile.rogersmj.com/themes/

I'm working on a new theme which will also be released for the 8700.

O2 Icon is very nice. If you upgrade to Telstra, that version of Vodafone is also a beauty.

Question After downloading??

Hey MRogers! I downloaded the Plazmic Theme Reader and then your Bliss 2.1 (large font for 8700) OTA... now, I'm not sure what to do - not really sure where on my 8700 it was downloaded to! Do you have any instructions on what to do after downloading?

Thanks in advance - love this forum, trying to learn more about the BB.

Hey,

I downloaded that earlier today and had the same problem. Take the battery out while it is still on. Wait 10 seconds. Put the battery back in and when its finished booting, you should find your theme in the themes menu.

BB Insight-Icon. I like a lot of icons on the screen and that one gives me the most. Zen did nothing for me....

Does anybody know how to get rid of icons on the right in the zen theme. I tried alt and the scroll wheel but it didn't work. Can you pick which icons are displayed?

I have only seen it from screen shots but it doesn't look that good to me. Orange uk has gone for the standard bb themes including zen which is quite cool. I like the macberry theme.

Go to Options and look for something like Home Screen or Configure Home Screen. You may have to go to Advanced Options. When you find it you will be able to Hide Apps and Move them, The top 5 in the list are what are shown on the Zen theme Home screen, the others are listed in the pop up menu when you select the bottom Icon.

Hope this helps.
