Default Couple Questions from a new Bold Owner

Please Login to Remove!

I've used BBs for a long time (pre-color screen), not a real power user, but a dedicated user just the same.

Having now purchased a BB Bold to replace my 8700, I'm jazzed about personalizing this thing a bit more than I usually do.

As far as themes go, I see just two..Precision Silver, and Precision AT&T. Are there more available on the fone that I'm not seeing, or are these it? I don't recall ever loading an external theme, but assume it is not too difficult.

Ringtones..can I use any type of file as a ring tone, such as an mp3?

That's it for now..looks like I have a ton of forum reading to catch up on, plus that incredible hints doc from Stinson.

Those all that are available on the device, others can be downloaded. I am using this theme below now, and really like it.

And yes to your answer on the ringtones... mp3 are the most common.

Thanks..I went to look at the crackberry store stuff and my head started spinning..

As far as the difference between themes and wallpaper...wallpaper is just simply a jpg or similar that sits in the background on the screen? Themes, it appears, move everything around...icons, etc..is that a good way to look at it?

Yes it is. You can put pretty much any wallpaper on any theme you want. I find a theme I like and just change the wallpaper every week or so.
