Default Custom Folder Icons

Please Login to Remove!

Hello everyone,

I got my first BlackBerry (a Torch 9800) a couple of weeks ago and since then have been using your forum as a handy resource to get to grips with all my new handset offers.

I have just joined this morning as I have 3 questions that I have not found answers too. I have posted each as a separate thread which I hope is the right way to do things.

Question 3: I have created several folders in the All Section of my phone and organised all my shortcuts into them. I am very happy with this setup, as I like things to be neat and ordered. My issue is the folders I have created have such awful icons. Does anyone know how to modify the stock icons, to ones of my choosing? I have purchased Shortcut Manager, MagicIcon and FileScout but despite following several recommendations on this and other sites I have been unable to change them.

Many thanks.

I purchased "miphone 3G". Not sure about custom icons but it changed all of mine and find it so much nicer to look at.

The folder icons are part of the theme and from what I've learned, you cannot modify an existing theme. You will most likely have to find a different theme that suits your needs or create one.

I might be wrong so let's wait and see what others say as well.

Hi there,

Thanks for your post, I have seen other posts where people have discussed themes, and I should probably have looked into this in more detail.

My concern is that a new theme will simply change the system icons, which although very basic I am happy with, when what I really want to do is have the flexibility to choose icons for the folders I have created to something other than a colour (which I struggle with) or a star or a heart!

Does your theme allow me to create my own icons for folders I create, and can you try it before you pay for it??

Thanks CK

Hmmmm, I think you are probably right! I just like the stock look of my phone so had hoped I could make a quick change to my folders, without radically changing the layout or costing myself a fortune!

Perhaps someone can suggest a theme that is very similar to the layout you get by default, but that gives you little more flexibility with folders?

Thanks CK
