Newbie : Desktop & Themes

[ Edited ]


I am a new Blackberry owner.  Typically I find myself to be competent in these areas, but this thing is WAY smarter than I am!


Can someone assist with a few questions:

How do I get new Themes?

How do I rearrange and choose what Icons are showing on my Homescreen? [especially important!]

Where are all these applications I can put on the phone?  I can't seem to figure out what they are talking about >.<



 It is a Pearl 8120.

To move the icons on your homescreen- Go to the icon you want to move, press menu, and click move. Then move to where you want it to be.


You can try to find some themes for your phone on google.

A great site for new theme is Themes4BB, which have tons of FREE themes to download.


To install, you click the OTA(over-the-air) download link and install it. Then go to Options (the wrench), Themes and click on the one you want to activate.  These do take up a lot of room on your device, so make sure you have enough.


Other option is installing using the desktop manager, which you should have installed(the disk that came with the 'berry), install the Device software located on the BlackBerry website here, then choose your provider and device type. After installation, connect your 'berry to your computer, choose the icon on the left to add programs, then navigate to the folder where you downloaded the .zip file with the theme in it, and install it.
