Default It's time to get use to it.

Please Login to Remove!

Okay, I just now bought a BlackBerry Pearl. I have the DM install and everything.

I have a 1GB card in my BB.

I need some help from you BB freaks.

1.) How to change/add the themes.
2.) How to add games.
3.) How to change the trackball color.
4.) How to upload Videos.


Also, what the heck is OTA?

Please help me.

Perhaps you would have gotten some different responses if you didn't refer to some as "BB Freaks".

It's hard until you learn how to do it.
Blackberryfaq.com is a good place to learn.
They have screenshots for lots of stuff there... including some for what you're specifically asking about.

None of us "BB Freaks" are going to hold your hand when you are too damn lazy to learn on your own first.

The FAQs are very nice and include screeen shots....

I will step you through your themes.

Menu>options>Theme (highlight the one you want and Menu>Activate
(If you want custom themes you will have to load them just like an application)

OTA stands for Over The Air and is used to install programs by pointing your BB Browser to the link provided as opposed to downloading to your PC and using the desktop manager to load.

Color Pearl is a program, if you search for it here on the forums I am sure you can find an OTA link.

So, you're saying. I would need BB browser to add THEMES..?


I went to the DM>Application Loader>Next>

It says:" Select the communication port to which your device is connected, or check the "Detect" box to scan for the port automatically.

COM1
COM2
COM3

or the detect box.

I try all those options. and it said that my bb wasn't connected and it's disconnected..It couldn't be established....

When my BB is connected to my PC.

*sigh* What theme are you trying to load? I am presuming the ones pre-loaded on your phone are not what you are looking for correct?

The search button will be your best friend on this site. "I-Phone" in the search button:

It's not a girl...it's a 50-ish guy w/a beer belly and no hair, using "feminine wiles" to get help that would be denied a lazy male.

Gotta love the internet... ;)

It seems to me the first thing -KELLY needs to learn is how to use the SEARCH function.

I just wonder why you will take time to continuously tell people to use the search function instead of answering them. They asked for an answer not a smart ars remark. I think its just being Techno Rude
