    you must have the newest version of desktop manager installed on your PC, along with the device OS, specific to your device. (see blackberry website for downloads)

    Re: How to on Installing Blackberry themes

    I can give it a shot. It would be the same for all BB's with 4.1 right?

    How To Install Themes on 4.1 OS

    Method 1
    Point you Blackberry browser to http://mobile.blackberry.com Theme click the link for 'Themes for 4.1 and higher devices' Click the 'I accept" after reading th T&C. Now you should see a page that has all the themes that are available for your device.

    Method 2
    Downloading themes created with Plazmic. If you want to create your own themes please check this THREAD out to see what you need to get started. First you will need the Plazmic theme reader. It can be downloaded HERE along with other themes from Millena Studios. Next install your theme via DM or OTA. Once the theme has be installed sucessfully, reboot your device. Now to to 'Options' then 'Themes' on your handheld. You should see an option to activate the theme. Click on that and you should be all set.

    Re: How to on Installing Blackberry themes

    For all true 100% newbies I recommend prefacing it with steps to check for 4.1 and at least a link back to the instructions for installing that for those out there who dont have 4.1 installed yet. Otherwise, it may seriously confuze them when they follow the steps and it doesnt work coz they have 4.0 and don't know.

    Just an idea =)!

    Re: How to on Installing Blackberry themes

    How are you trying to download them? OTA or through your pc? You can download both theme readers HERE. And after you d/l a theme, make sure to reboot your device. If you are installing them thru DM App Loader, it should reboot the device for you.

    As far as ringtones go, I have d/l'ed a few. I just point my BB Browser to http://inevitabletruth.org/blackberry/ringtones/mid/ . To d/l them you just click on the one you want, it will play for you and then you can save it from there.

    Re: How to on Installing Blackberry themes

    I am getting the following error message: "No additional applications designed for your device were found "when I am adding themes to my BB 7100t. What does this mean? Is there not enough room?

    Re: How to on Installing Blackberry themes

    No additional applications designed for your device were found - usually means the PC is not finding anything else that will go on your phone. It could mean what you have is meant for another phone, i have a 7100 and it is for an 8700, or you might already have it loaded to your library to pick from. I have done the later many times.... and yelled at the PC for not working.... then felt really sheepish when I realized I was the problem.

    Thanks. I'll remove the 8700 theme and see what happens.
