    Are you trying to dl (download) them OTA (Over-The-Air) or thru the DM (Desktop Manger)?

    First off, Welcome. Themes can be downloaded in 2 ways: OTA, which means over-the-air direct to you device.(This requires a data plan w/ your service provider. The 2nd is by downloading a posted .zip file to your desk/laptop. This method requires that you have the most current BlackBerry for your device downloaded to your pc. You will have to coonnect your device via the desktop software and transfer the theme to your device through the application loader that comes w/the software. Hope this helps.

    There are two ways.
    OTA - over the air. Point your BB browser to a certain link and it will prompt you to download.

    Or

    Thru DM - desktop manager, you download a theme zip to pc, extract it. Plug in bb and use app loader function to add or remove programs. When in that use browse to find the unzipped file on your pc and select the alx file add that and it will install your theme.

    In a nutshell.

    Make sure that the theme you use is specific for your device. Ex:83XX =8310/8320/8330

    The Application Loader is part of the desk top software that you install on your pc to manage your device. It's purpose is to install/delete software on your device via usb connection.

    Don't worry, we've all been there. Just be patient if I don't answer right away. It's hard to weld and BB @ the same time.
