Theme or no theme?
Was just wondering after taking a browse through the wallpaper section of the forum and was wanting to know, who actually themes up their devices here? In the days of my 8800 I used to use themes but nowadays I try to keep it stock and just change my wallpaper. Anywhoo, go ahead and post your response and why!
Also if you'd like to post what theme you're using, go ahead!

i have definitely themed my 9900. unfortunately there arent many free ones. so what i use is the "mini banner" theme. its great because it makes the banner at the top smaller revealing more wallpaper!

I prefer the stock theme. Most third party themes I've tried are buggy, either a memory leak or the menu fonts are too small. I'm over 40 and my eyesight isn't what it use to be. The only theme I actually kept and used was one I created with BB Theme Studio 5.0 for my Tour, and that was because I could enlarge the date and time in the notification banner.

I have used theme in the past, but I tend to be picky. Now that I'm running OS 7.1, I just don't find many themes that I'm willing to pay for. So, change the wallpaper is what I do.We have clearance, Clarence.
What's our vector, Victor?

I like just changing the wall paper. When I change themes, my icons usually get moved, then I have to move them back. And a lot of themes I tried have memory leaks etc.

Seven Point Five and Beat are the two themes have I have on my 9930. Love them both!! I'm would like to see a weather slot added to some of these OS7 themes.Treat the Earth and all that dwell therein with respect

Definately mini banner "live" version. And mini banner 2.0. Haven't had any issues ever, with either one. Great theme builders and the color changing "new notification" banner is very innovative. Keep up the great work drkapprentice and Lucky45! You guys are tops in my book!

The reason I like no theme is because the theme selections on Blackberries are horrendous and I say this with my love for Blackberries. Blackberry themes are truly horrendous and they look absolutely appalling. The visuals and execution of these themes are mediocre even for the paid themes. I come from an iPhone and Android and they have plenty of eye candy that makes me drool. Blackberry on the otherhand, not so much. That being said, I love my blackberry to death because at the end of the day, the stock theme looks professional, gets the job done, and is a power horse. I'm a crackberry.

Theme or no theme?
I use the small banner theme created by Lucky. It has no bugs, no memory or battery issue what so ever. I used this theme even on OS 7.0 and now I am on OS 7.1.
