    If you backed it up I think it should have saved them then. Use your Desktop Manager to backup.

    I thought you have to go through the switch device wizard? Cuz I thought DM only backs up contacts, emails, messages, settings, etc. Please correct me if I'm wrong?

    Not really sure. Everytime I've restored all my themes are there.

    Anyone else know? I could be totally wrong too. That's what I always thought.

    Interesting....

    The themes are still in the app loader, anytime i have done it. not sure if it does it automatically from back up.

    I have never used OTA for a theme before, can you view your backed up data from your PC then you could recognise the theme files ??

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~ I think this is where the switch device wizard comes into play. However I think you need both devices at the same time. Could be wrong its happened before

    As far as I know all your themes should be there after a backup no matter if they're OTA. But like they said all said, switch device wizard should do it as well. Goodluck.

    Themes and 3rd party apps are only still there with backup if you're working with the same pearl. If you are looking to throw themes and 3rd party apps from one pearl to another pearl you have to use the switch device tool. I learned that the hard way when I sold one pearl before I had my new one in hand. As I understand it, for the switch device tool, you need both devices around at once.
