Default 8700 TMobile, how to change format of home screen?

Please Login to Remove!

I noticed on a co-worker's 8700 from Cingular (UK) that the home screen formatting was different (I dont mean the font, but actually what is displayed on the top 20% of the screen in home and in inbox). It did not have the large top banner that shows Date Time, but had a more redesigned one with the same info but represented differently. Moreoever in the inbox mode, the entire list showed all of the emails, but only a small portion of the screen showed signal, current time and date (only the top 5% of the screen). Is there a way to reduce the size banner at the top of my screen. I dont mean resizing fonts but turning off or reducing this info which wastest about the top 20% of the screen in my inbox? I am using Tmobile 8700 in the USA. Thanks PWL

All the available homescreen looks for the 8700: How to Add Vendor Locked Themes - BlackBerryFAQ
No doubt it was one of these
