You can see if the modules loaded by going to >Options >Advanced Options >Applications >Click Menu and select "View Modules."

Sprint theme: net_rim_theme_104_320x240.cod
Verizon theme: net_rim_theme_105_320x240.cod

It's possible that they are not compatible, so if the module is loaded but doesn't show up in the Themes list then it's probably not compatible.

Keep an eye out for Jibi's .alx in the sticky in the Themes/Ringtones/Wallpapers forum as he's the resident expert. I learned this stuff from his posts.

8800 series (GSM/GPRS/EDGE)
Cingular (United States) - 4.2.1.109/4.2.1.72
Installation Download: Click Here
Installation File Name: 8800M_PBr4.2.1_rel109_PL2.3.0.54_A4.2.1.72_Cingula r.exe
Installation Path: C:\Program Files\Common Files\Research In Motion\Shared\Loader Files\8800-v4.2.1.72_P2.3.0.54
BlackBerry.alx Download: Click Here

* Note: I have also included modified Platform.alx and LBS.alx files. The modified Platform.alx file is for Cingular users with PTT service enabled on their accounts. If you are not a Cingular customer and do not have PTT enabled on your account, do NOT use this modified Platform.alx. The instructions for installation are the same as the BlackBerry.alx file. This *should* allow the installation of the PTT software on the handheld. As to whether or not it would work, that's up in the air. The modified LBS.alx is for Cingular users only, as something was disabled in the default package for the Cingular-branded 8800 devices.

The only thing that sucks is that BB Messenger is now in a IM Messenger folder within the T-Mobile Zen Theme. I wonder if I delete BB Msg and re-download it, will it appear on the main screen rather then in a folder.

It's nice to get all the themes as I had on my Pearl. Thanks to jibi. I have not settled in on one particular yet. I used and loved the T-Mobile Zen theme on my Pearl. It gave it a Mac look.

I second that request. Would be great to know which are worthwhile before loading the OS.

Once I can get a ScreenShot app up and running I'll post them if someone else doesn't beat me to it.
