    I found an Alabama theme on there that i liked. I saved it to the computer and ran my BB software. I can't get it over to my phone though. What do I do?

    What type of file was it? If it was .zip you need to unzip it and use the Desktop Manager's Application Loader to load it.

    If it was a .jar file you need to visit the link you downloaded it with your BB and it will install OTA (Over the air).

    You right click the file, and select "extract files" follow the prompts.

    Then use Desktop Manager to put it on your Phone.

    I extracted the files but I can't put them anywhere on my desktop manager. I can put them in pictures but nothing comes up in my Pearl.

    they most likely extracted to the same place you downloaded the first file.

    you need to open desktop manager and launch the application loader. find where you saved the file and add to the list to update/install.

    Additional theme install help.




    Install using your desktop manager.


    1. Download the zip file to your PC:
    2. Unzip the file to a folder (name the folder).
    3. Connect your Blackberry to your computer.
    4. Open up Desktop Manager –> Application Loader –> Add.
    5. Find the file called “ThemeName.alx” and click “OK”.
    6. Find the file called "Plazmic_Theme_reader.alx" and click "ok".

    Note: 8100/Pearl users omit step 6 above. The theme reader is NOT needed.
    After the installation finishes, you can now change your themes by going to Options (wrench icon) –> Theme.


    http://blackberryforums.pinstack.com...30_themes.html

    8100/Pearl Themes

    Ongoing List of 8700 themes

    New forum for 8800 themes



    Notes:
    Icons from any third party vendors will show as they normally do, without transparency.
    If you have already installed themes using plazmic_theme_reader.alx file in the past no need to re-load that file over again.
    Additionally after installing themes keep the theme folder in the same place or the desktop manager will produce a message saying it can't find any additional applications to install in the future if you attempt to install additional themes.

    Phones do have memory limits, you may not be able to keep a never ending list of themes installed. If you find that a theme does not show up look at how many themes you have installed and consider removing one to make room for the newly install theme.



    Hope this helps?
