    windwalker, Welcome to PinStack.

    What is the file extension on the files you downloaded? Need to know to tell you what to do next?

    Re: loading themes on 8703e

    Hi windwalker,

    I've had several 8703e users tell me they are not able to install theme(s) with the desktop manager. I don't have that device and don't know what the cause/reason for this would be? Good news is every one of them tell me that ota installations work just fine. I would install your choice of theme(s) using the ota method.

    OTA Install. The OTA install method is easy and fast and requires no PC or USB cables. You should use the Internet browser on your BlackBerry (not the WAP browser) to navigate to the web page containing the link for the installation
    You can type this into the browser on your device or paste it into an email you send to yourself and launch it from the email message. Select and click on the theme's name, then use the Get Link option from the pop-up menu. The next screen will prompt you to download the file or cancel. Some information about the file is also displayed. Select Download and the process will begin. On EDGE and EVDO networks, the download should take less than one minute. Upon completion, you will be prompted to reboot the device.
    If this is your first time installing a theme via OTA, I recommend you download the theme file first, do NOT reboot, then download the Theme Reader (same web page) and then reboot. After that you'll be ready to use the new theme.


    You willl enjoy themes, everyone does.

    Re: loading themes on 8703e

    That's good news! (thanks cp)

    So here would be the install instruction with the desktop manager.


    >>>>>>>>>>>
    Install using your desktop manager.

    Here’s how:

    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".

    After the installation finishes, you can now change your themes by going to Options (wrench icon) –> Theme.

    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.

    DL it OTA (over the air) LOL. Sorry, I'm not a MAC user (yet!) but you should be able to find most themes OTA. Which theme are you looking for?
