    home screen layout

    Advertisement



    Hello everyone... I couldn't help noticing in some advertising or some webpages where you can see images of the BB Curve, that the layout in the phones shown in those images, have a home screen with different layoutsN for instance having the icons at the bottom, instead of on the left, or in some sort of round layout in the middle of the screen... Does anybody know if this is possible in this device, and how can it be changed???Thanks!JM

    There are three basic Theme designs with a few more unique versions. The basics are Icon, Zen and Today. This thread has a good representation of the various themes, Vendor Themes: What do the look like? (PICTURES HERE)

    Some of the variations are unique to the carrier. For example, T-Mobile and Verizon have the low-horizontal icons as part of one of their carrier themes.

    Re: home screen layout

    Ok, thanks, now let's suppose I don' work with any of those carriers, is there any way of getting those layouts or is there any way of getting other variations?

    Thank you both so much on your quick response, and look forward to hearing from you... Hopefully you can help me out.

    Re: home screen layout

    You won't need programming training to do the unlocked vendor themes. It is actually pretty easy once you follow the thread. You do need to have the latest OS for your BB installed on your PC to get this to work.

    You may want to read through this thread regarding that issue:
    http://blackberryforums.pinstack.com...p_manager.html

    Here's another very useful thread on installing themes which you can find for your 8300 in the 8300 Themes forum:

    Re: home screen layout

    i wish during setup it gave you some additional settings like which icons you want on the home screen or the size of the icons you want to you.

    This can easily be modified with the theme builder if you learn how to build your own themes or have a custom one made for you.
    Visit the 8300 theme section for a variety of different free themes that have many different customized icons included in the themes, large and small.
    Also the icons that are on the home screen can be moved as well very easily
    by hitting menu>scrolling to the icons you want to move to the top row>hit menu again>move
    and then just move the icons in the order you want on the top row and this will be the order that appears on the home screen.
