    Using the Desktop Manager, i'm pretty sure you can delete some of the original themes

    To do so you would need to modify the alx file on the back end on the handheld software. I would not recommend doing so unless you know what you are doing but the path on the PC is C:\Program Files\Common Files\Research In Motion\Shared\Loader Files\81XX what ever your software version is. You would need to delete the cod file associated with the theme. Again this is at your own risk and could brick your phone. If you are going to mess with it save a full copy of the blackberry alx file in notebook so if something goes wrong you can paste it back in again.

    What is stopping you from adding more then 2 themes? is it free space?

    Are you sure the themes are written for the 8130? If they aren't specifically for the 8130 i believe it will not load on the phone.

    I got the themes from this site and it says that they are for the 81xx. They have been working very well on my phone so i doubt that the 8100/ 8130 has separate themes. Im wondering if I should perhaps buy a 2gb sd card so I can put everything i want on this thing......btw based on the #'s i told you is the memory low?

    Based on the memory you got about 13 MB.... not low in my opinion. I would not let it drop below 7 MB or so to be on the safe side.

    As far as the theme goes when you go into mobile.blackberry.net from the phones browser do they have any themes written on there yet for the 8130? Last i checked they did not, which would tell me the themes would not necessarily be the same, but i could be wrong. It has happened before. I would say if they have a theme there to try downloading it to see if you can load it on.

    Seems to be an issue on the 8130 that has not found a cure yet. Others have complained about the same thing. I would follow THIS thread and try to free up as much memory as possible, just to be on the safe side.
