Default Help with the different icons

Please Login to Remove!

Hi

I've had my bb 8310 for over a year now. My brothers just had a new curve and his icons are completely different.
Mine are like the ones in the first photo and my brothers are like the ones in the second.
Is this the way they are now? Or is it because he is on a different network? I really dont know much about bb but was kind of curious to why his look quite boring and mine are colourful and fun when mines an older phone.
If i were to get a newer bb could i still have the same icons that i have? like in the first photo? or are they the older bb.

Thanks

It's the difference between your theme and his theme on your respective BlackBerrys.

You can have different themes... find the one(s) you like and download to your device.
Look in our Media section here for lots of them.

My boyfriends cousin actually hates how his icons look (how yours look in the first photo) and wishes they were more like mine It's all about personal preference, and it's as easy to change as your theme.

Yup. There are many sites that offer free themes, and some come with a charge associated. I've gotten some from the shop through the forum, BlackBerry App Store. The link is just above between "wap" and "sponsors"

Welcome to the forums.

Check the FAQ

Where can I find a good list of themes and theme developers? - BlackBerryFAQ

I thought I was pretty clear where you would find themes.
