    I dont exactly seem to grasp what you are needing help with? What is the website you are trying to download themes from? Are you having problems trying to download and use the theme? Have you searched this forums download section for themes? This thread should help:

    good luck

    I clicked on it and saved it to a folder I made. after the folder saves I followed the steps that were posted in another forum. Then I tired to load it into my phone. I kept getting a message saying there wasn't a file to be added. Can you help me?

    desktop is for downloading the theme to your PC and installing with desktop manager

    OTA is where you browse to that thread from your bb browser and click the respective theme link ... have to have a data plan (but is really the easiest way to install themes on your bb)

    One is for the PC download and one is for Blackberry Browser (Over the Air) download.

    If you are downloading from your blackberry directly use the one that says OTA this stands for Over The Air download. These are generally .alx files for programs and .jad files (someone correct me if I'm wrong). This type of download should automatically open the confirmation page when you initiate the process.

    When you are downloading from your computer save the file into a spot that you will remember (i.e.: My Documents/My Downloads/Blackberry Themes)

    Open your desktop manager and make sure that your device is connected to your computer. When you have done this and at the bottom of the DM (desktop manager) box it says Connected: Pin (yourpin) Then you may open the icon that says application loader.

    This will open the application loader device wizard/

    Wait while the DM determines your device setup. Once it pops up with a list of applications that you can check or un-check click the button that says "Add..."

    Then locate your above saved theme and click the ok or open button.

    On the wizard screen click the next button and confirm your addition.

    Wait until your device restarts then locate the theme on your device under Options/Theme

    Any questions? PM me.

    Be sure to unzip the files if that's what you've downloaded. Can't upload a .zip file to the phone.
