    I know theres probably a million posts for this so please do not tell me to go look somewhere else because I DON'T UNDERSTAND!

    I don't get how to get a new theme for my phone. I found some cute ones that I really like but I don't get how to get it from the link to my phone. I have a 4.3 and I'm so lost. I know it should be easy but can you try to explain it to me as simple as possible. Explain it like your trying to show it to a 5 year old honestly.

    Thank you.

    Most themes have OTA (Over the air) download. You just click the link and it will let you download it straight to your BB. If not then you would have to use DM (desktop manager). There's also a desktop over the air downloader.

    Hi Jana - lets see what we can do. First, I need to know if the themes you want to install are marked for "OTA" - Over the Air. or "Desktop"?

    If OTA, and you have data service, then you need to use your browser on your blackberry to download the themes directly on to your device.

    If Desktop, then you will need to download to your PC, and unzip them to produce the installable files. At that point you will need Deskop Manager and your Device Operating System on your PC as well.

    Using Desktop Manager, Click on Application loader, add, and browse over to the files you extracted (it will only show the .cod file). Thhen click Next, etc....this will install on your device.

    If you need help with any of this, including where to find desktop manager or your device operating system, just post back

    It will if it is set up for an over the air installation. Most sites are pretty clear about desktop or OTA - can you post the site you are looking at?

    If it isn't the over the air, can you help me find a site that has cute, girly themes that I can use that way, it seems so much easier for me.

    Good choice. Cherri has some great free themes!

    When you are on her site it will say:

    ZIP LINK (this is for desktop install)
    and
    OTA LINK (this can be loaded directly on your device with your Blackberry Browser)

    And yes, its that simple! It should show up in your themes list right away. If it does not turn off the device, pull the battery, and reboot....

    On the page I'm on it doesn't have those 2 options, the other ones I was on did, but this one for some reason doesn't have them.

    I had disappearing messages the DAY i got my phone and i like cried! I thought I already messed up my phone. But I figured it all out. It's just a confusing phone to have. Do you know any other good sites for free themes? or where I can get a Joker theme from the Dark Knight for an 8130. I'm in LOVE with some I've seen but I haven't found one yet for an 8130.
