    To install stuff on your blackberry you need the cable (which you have) and you need the manager software on your PC (go to blackberry.com if you dont have that) next! once the software is installed you will come to a screen like in pic 1. Connect you blackberry and it will try to sync and stuff then when that is all done Click App loader! then it will load the java! then all you have to do is browse for the alx file that your theme is in and add it. then your done

    FB if you have a data plan on your phone, you can download a lot of themes "OTA" (over the air)

    All that means is going to a website with your BB Browser, and downloading it directly to your phone.

    If you don't, then yeah, using desktop manager and app loader is the way to go with your USB cable.

    Download the theme's .alx file to your computer. I usually just download it to the desktop so I can see it. Connect your phone to your PC and run App Loader. When you get to the screen with the list of applications, click "add" and then browse over to your desktop (or whereever you saved the .alx file) and click on the file. Click OK and then proceed through the rest of the app loader's instructions and you're all set.

    Sometimes after you downloading a theme you need to do a battery pull before the phone sees it. So go to Options-->Themes and if its not listed in there, do a battery pull and you should be all set.

    Good luck!

    .rar files are a type of zip and need to be extracted. .cod files are the java files that are actually installed on the BB. They are associated with the alx files.

    Re: Newbie needing THEMES help! =)

    Newbie as well...I am trying to "customize" the existing BB 8130 "BB Dimension Today." By default it the icons that show are: Messages, Calendar, Call, Log, and then the Applications Icon.

    Does anyone know how to change add/remove/change those? I am trying to remove the Messages and call log icons and add maybe keylock and tasks.

    As a side question anyone find that the battery for the 8130 sucks? I have to charge mine every two days and I am a very very very VERY light data user. Thanks all.

    There is no way to change that, but you can create your own theme using Plazmic.
