    Are you trying to download them from your BB or using the Desktop Manager ?

    Is there an error you are getting ?

    Are you making sure you are selecting the correct Device and OS for yor phone.

    Ok, when you download from your phone, the file must be an OTA (Over The Air) Link. You browse to the theme from your phone's browser and highlight the OTA link/click it to begin the Download and install process.

    If you are attempting to download or install a "Zip" file from your phone's browser that will not work. Zip (compressed) files are meant to be downloaded via your PC/Desktop/Laptop computer, once on your computer extract the file, than use your DM (Desktop Manager) with your Device attached via USB to load the Application.

    You getting this error Unsupported media type: application/zip because your trying to install the ZIP folder

    Extract the files from withing the ZIP folder....there will be a COD and a ALX file. Save them to a folder on your desktop.

    Or perform the steps DJ Smooth stated above

    Yup, simply do one of the following...

    Click the ota links to download themes from the phone, or save the zip files to use with the DM... That's the simple rule of thumb...

    ~via smartphone~

    Try a battery pull and see if that fixes it.

    try a reset. power the phone off and remove the battery. leave out 30 seconds. replace and let inititialize.

    if it still does not appear in options/themes then it was probably not exported to your exact OS .. there are multiple OS versions out for the pearl
