    THEME VS. WALLPAPER

    Advertisement



    OK, I had to ask, what is the difference between a theme and a background image? It appears to be the same thing to me!

    Only thing I see difference is on themes you can make the icons different as well.

    Themes also change the default fonts, colors, and general look of the main screen. The neat thing is that you don't have to use the theme's default wallpaper, you can change that. So yeah, it does change the icons, and whatnot, and you can use different wallpapers with different themes to customize it to your needs.

    Re: THEME VS. WALLPAPER

    In adding to JadedBerry's list often a themes background image has been changed to fit the screen better allowing the image to set more correctly for the viewer. The incoming call screen often is customized also to compliment the main image background. There are several other things a theme offers also but for the most part a theme will tie all colors and images together where just changing the background will not do that.

    And to add to Jade's and srl's posts, I'll throw in this.

    You can also change the Title Bar background and borders, Buttons, Menu and Dialog Backgrounds and borders, most text fonts, highlighting and colors, and Banner Indicator colors.

    Welcome to pinstack. You can have wallpapers for the incoming call screen, does that help?

    Re: THEME VS. WALLPAPER

    hi...this is my first post...

    Is it possible to use themes without the icon option (using the list option instead)?

    Thanks... I did (for example, the theme "gunshot-list", and about 6 others i tried) but the theme features only icons, not the list feature, unless i am messing up along the way.

    You can also unlock vender themes. I personally like the o2 list. It is the one I mostly use on my 7105t.

    Do a search: how to unlock hidden vender themes

    I know there are a few others too. You can always change to background if need be too.

    I second JadedBerry's post. Unfortunately for me the themes for the pearl are limited unlike the 8700 which is very open and there are tons and tons to choose from. Hopefully the pearl will be able to download and use more themes in the future.

    Re: THEME VS. WALLPAPER

    Hi, I have a 7280 with 4.0 OS. I don't like the gray background on any screen. What is the best way to put some color in my BB?
    Thanks, Mary

    Re: THEME VS. WALLPAPER

    Do you have an app on the 7280 for Pictures? If so email an image to your BB, save it to th BB, then from the menu set that image as Home screen image. I'm not positive this will work though. Never had a anything earlier than a 7290
