Default Small Icon Theme Calculator issue

Please Login to Remove!

Has the calculator issue in the small Icon theme been resolved? I really like this theme but need the calculator. Is anyone working on fixing this?

Sorry if this has been answered already.

Also - where do you get the Rogers List theme? Everyone keeps talking about it but I can't find it anywhere. It looks to me like it is the same theme as the standard 7100T list theme but with a white background and a Rogers logo. Are there any other differences or features?

Thanks in advance.

The Rogers theme, and all of the 7100 themes currently available, are located here - Noob guide to installing new Themes on 7100 series - in the aptly named Noob Guide to Themes.

I'm not sure RIM or T-Mobile would agree that there is a calculator issue. Here's how I see the conversation going:

Hello RIM, I tried to take the 7700 theme and put it on the 7100 and now the calculator doesn't work. <click>. Hello? Hello?

Very nice reply - thank you. That was of no help to me at all.

So - what you are saying is that the small icons theme will never be able to use the calculator function that comes with the 7100T right?

The Rogers theme is not where you suggested.

I won't post anymore on this forum since you Super Moderators are so offended by people who obviously don't know as much as you do!

DigitalEagle - some of the themes that are available on the thread are intended for other blackberry devices than the 7100 series. Therefore, not all of the functionality will be available on other devices.

Thats not a flame, it's called sarcasm or having a sense of humor. I for one got a smile out it. Wear life like a loose garment, you asked for help, NJBLACKBERRY offered some and a little joke. If it didnít help try doing on your own using the search button.

I answered the same question three times yesterday. Sorry if you didn't like the answer. It has been posted over and over and over. It is in the big thread. Putting the 7700 small icons theme, written and designed for the 7700, onto a 7100 breaks the calculator. No one is working on this, since it is not a problem. Keep hitting the BB with a hammer and you will break it. Put 7100 themes onto a 7280 and get a Black and white Blackberry. Is RIM working on that?

Guess I should have added a smiley to the end. This conversation on the calculator has gone on way too far.

Sorry if you didn't like my response. It was truthful.

It seems a lot of replies by moderators are always "use the search" and "I anwered that question 7 times".

If you get tired of telling "n00bs" to use the search then don't reply. Let those who want to help reply.

And fix the search drop down so it shows up on top of the banner--all of the time.

I agree - it's hard for me to decipher what the "professional" posters consider "sarcasm" vs. being "discourteous" to novice users.

I'm very sorry that you have posted your replies to this question over 7 times. Perhaps you aren't communicating very effectively - as I read the thread multiple times and got the impression that the calculator was broken on the small Icons theme and assumed that someone would probably try to find a fix for for the 7100.

I was not aware that the small Icons theme came from a different BB and was therefore not 100% compatible.

Us "Noobs", as you "Pro's" put it, should probably not be allowed to ask anymore "stupid" questions. After all - it is just wasting your time.

I'm very sorry to intrude and impose on your private forum!

Okay, I have to say something. NJBlackBerry is one of the most helpful people on this and other boards and what you guys are whining about is absolutely ridiculous. I will give you the benefit of the doubt that you are new to BlackBerrys, but I doubt very seriously that you are new to message boards and forums.

I have yet to see a message board or forum that doesn't have a search button. I have yet to see a message board or forum that doesn't have people who are tired of ANYBODY that refuses to even look for the answer that IS SITTING UP AT THE TOP OF THE BOARD!!!

If you didn't understand something that you read in the thread that is stickied to the top, then why didn't you ask the question there? It's not locked and people would respond to you better.

I DID LOOK IT UP UNDER THE SEARCH FUNCTION AND STILL DIDN'T UNDERSTAND THAT THE DEFAULT CALCULATOR WOULD NOT BE FIXED TO RUN UNDER THE SMALL ICONS THEME AND THE 7100T.

God I hate people who consider themselves Forum Cops. Like you!

I got a lot of good information from this forum - but it is very clear to me that a select few people here have an arrogant attitude towards newcomers in this forum. Not all, mind you, some have been very helpful - but YOU certainly aren't one of them.

As for me - I'm moving to a friendlier forum where "Noobs" don't get chewed out when someone "perceives" that all questions have been answered with crystal clarity.

You are right, I'm not new to forums - but I've never been insulted as I have on this forum when just asking for a "clarification" to an issue I didn't understand.

I didn't start this flame - the rude person who "assumed" I never checked for an answer did!

I'm through with this forum!!!

Now that's a little over the top. Truthfully, I thought NJBlackberry's initial post was one of the more funny, explanatory, and even personable, posts I've seen from him in quite a while. And, really, I don't know where else in the vast internet you can go to get as much support and as little chiding as you find here. I suspect DigitalEagle will be back soon, though perhaps with a different name! ;)

I can be positively arrid. I will try to be more senstive in the future. Well, not really, but it sounded good early in the morning.

Hopefully the other forum will fix the calculator issue.

I guess us "n00bs" should have known nj's dry sense of humor on a board that's here to support BB's.

The search function on vBulletin boards and phpbb2 boards stinks and you folks should know that.

You search for a term and hope the subject line in the results gives you enough info so you can decide which thread to view. Then, you have no idea if you're question/problem is in the first post or the 31st post and all posts in between can quickly go off topic.

Anyway this is a great board.
