    Interchangeable Themes??

    Advertisement



    Hi, brand new here and with a dumb theme question too!

    Just bought a 7130c, don't even have it yet, but am curious about themes .. it seems that the 71xx and the 81xx BB's have the same resolution (240x260) so is there any reason one could not use an 81xx theme on a 71xx phone?

    I remember back to my 7280 days .. I used a couple of 7100 themes on it, and the resolution wasn't even the same. Other than some ocassional scrolling, it worked just fine. So I am guessing that 240x260 themes would prob work on any 240x260 BB. Am I in error?

    I want to download some themes before I even have the unit, will 8100 themes work on the 7130c? Sure is a lot more to choose from in the 8100 series.

    Thanks, Alan in Oklahoma

    I think they may only work if you have the same OS exam:4.1,4.2 along those lines.

    Many themes are OS Specific. Therefore, if you have the same OS as the Pearl, you should be fine.

    Otherwise, I don't believe they will work.
    As always, just my opinion...

    Thanks, I haven't even gotten the 7130c yet, it's brand new in the box, don't know what OS ver it was shipped with. Understand that I can dl the current ver from the BB website, so I should be ok there.

    Also, please what is a prizmatic (believe that's the name) theme? Does it need some kind of software installed in order to use one?

    Thanks again, Alan in Oklahoma

    A little update, got my 7130c, immediately updated DM and handheld os to latest available. Tried 8100 themes, many work, some don't. It's ok, some of them have a trackwheel vs. trackball problem. Still gives me a host of new themes to play with. All's well with the world. Alan

    Oh you're talking about Plasmic Theme Reader. Yes this needs to be installed to view themes on the 7100 series but if I remember correctly, it's installed when you install a theme.
