    OTA means Over The Air! Meaning themes that are OTA formatted can be downloaded directly to your phone without having to use a computer.

    OS means Operating System! A themes OS has to be for the certain OS you are running on your BB! To find out what OS you are running, go to Options>>About, third line down will tell you.

    Themes can't be saved to your memory card! They have to go to your devices memory in order for them to work.

    Correct. Usually there is a link to download the theme as a .zip file. Un-zip it, then connect your phone to your pc with the usb, connect to desktop manager, go under application settings > add/remove applications, then browse for the unziped theme. I believe it'll be a .thm file, I can't remember for sure.

    OTA is really a lot easier. What I do when I find the OTA link on my pc, I just put my mouse cursor over the link so it'll show me the entire address, then on my bb, I open the browser, then options > go to, and just handtype the link. It may not be the most efficient way of entry, but I find it quite easy. After you go to the entered address, you will be prompted to download, and then it installs itself!

    Just use the app loader to get the themes onto your bb if they are jad and cod files. The quickest way is to just use the OTA if one is available.

    I have saved the unzipped files, but when I go to add them, I get a pop up box that says "No additional applications designed for your device were found". What does that mean?
