    yes

    go to options (its a wrench or possible gears icon)
    then to the first selection which should be "about"
    on the first screen, the third line down is your OS

    looks like this (YOUR NUMBERS WILL BE DIFFERENT):
    v4.2.2.181 (Platform 2.5.0.35)

    ooh...ok, you have the original OS then, you have never upgraded.

    i would suggest upgrading to a newer OS, then reinstalling the themes.

    if they still do not show up, then i would suggest contacting the person who made the theme and asking them to re-export to 4.2.0 target OS bc that's most likely the problem.

    for upgrading, use this blog post

    here are the directions:

    download the update and install it on to your PC
    if you downloaded an OS that isn't from YOUR carrier, you will need to delete the vendor.xml file (located in the program files)
    plug bb into usb
    open desktop manager - let it initialize, will say connected when ready
    double click application loader
    should be prompted to upgrade the core applications
    click thru the wizard and begin the installation process

    i would backup the device first before starting this process, using Desktop Manager.

    ok, go back to where you saved the OS and double click the file to execute/install it on your PC. at the end it will ask you to open DM, if you downloaded an OS that isn't from your same carrier, you MUST delete the vendor.xml file. if not, proceed to opening DM. again, go to help/DM and see if the tab is there now.
