    After installing a theme, you'll want to reboot the device. Turn the device off, pull the battery and then reinsert it.

    Once it powers up, go to options > theme > select your theme!

    OTA goto options>themes and select the nancy drew theme.

    Downloaded zip file you must unzip the files first and then open DM 9desktop manager) goto appl loader and add/remove app then click new and find the theme on your pc and click that and then run app loader

    Why do you need to get the battery out?! Did you even follow the article I posted??

    And I highly doubt you installed the theme correctly, because not 10 minutes ago you made a thread asking about the wallpaper and you though if you loaded the screen shot of the theme it would actually act as a theme and not a wallpaper...

    Please relax and take the time to read what I provided...

    So do you actually have the theme installed then??

    And, you do not need to pull the battery... you can rest with Alt-RShift-Del

    Then go to Options > Themes and the theme should be there... select it and you are good to go

    If you attempted to reset the device that method... it will not do anything, because that is incorrect. When performing a battery pull, you do not power down the device and then pull the battery... that does not perform a reset. You leave the device powered on and then pull!

    Or do the soft reset I mentioned... Alt-RShift-Del...

    (Are you positive you installed the theme??)

    Wait I just re did it, then it asked if I wanted to re boot to install theme. It did not do that before. Sorry for all the confusion.

    Did you get the correct theme for your device model?? They are model specific...

    Go to Options > Advanced Options > Applications and see if it is listed there...

    Themes exported for a higher OS than your own will not work on your BB. Look for themes exported for 4.2 or 4.3...

    Verizon is still testing OS 4.5 and most US carriers still haven't officially released this new OS upgrade.

    As of right now, the only way to get 4.5 on your phone is to either download a beta version or download a released version from another carrier.
