    gitsy -- welcome to the stacks!

    there are two methods to download/installing themes.

    1) desktop/zip download -- meant to be downloaded to your desktop PC, unzipped and installed using Desktop Manager

    2) OTA or "over the air" -- meant to be downloaded using your BlackBerry Browser

    Which way are you attempting?

    You need to use your Desktop Manager to load them...I suggest Desktop Manager 4.6...it's on the Blackberry site

    • Connect your device
    • Go to Application Loader
    • Go to Add/Remove Programs
    • Browse to your Theme files ( alx/cod )

    or

    if the themes you like are hosted and there is a OTA link just go to that link from your BB and it will install...

    well, some of our theme developers load rar files up, so that will come in handy .. but yes, you will need winzip for the zip files.

    you are correct...WinRar will unpackage ZIP files.

    Just extract ( unZip ) the files into a folder on your desktop so you can browse to them from within DM

    Are you downloading themes made for your particular phone model and OS model? If you are downloading a theme that is not compatible with your phone it won't work. ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~
