Bold 9700: How to change BB Menu Background?

 

I understand how to change the background of the home screen but i get confused because sometimes the background of the BB menu changes, sometimes it doesn't. How do you control that? Whats the trick if there is one?


Also where can i get Google maps? I had it before on my 8900 but now i can't find it in bb apps.

Please advise..

Thanks

can't help you on the menu trick.

 

However, you can download google maps by going to google.com/maps in your blackberry browser.

When you say the background of the menu changes, are you talking about the background of the whole menu or the background of the home screen?

Re: Bold 9700: How to change BB Menu Background?

I'm talking about the background after you press the BB menu button.  I know how to change the home screen background.

 

Sometimes the home screen background is also the background of the BB menu.

 

Sometimes the BB Menu background is black or blue...Sometimes it's a background of another theme.

 

And i dont know what i do for that to happen, so i can stop doing it or change it to something i like

I can't get mine to do what you're saying.  I see the home screen background, but when I hit the menu button it goes to a blue colored background with no picture of any kind. Sounds odd, indeed.

I think the theme in use controls the appearance of the menus

You cant just change the background image, u need to install some kind of theme modifier application
