    Is there a way to change the icons on the home screen to the specific application that I want instead of the default ones?

    Try this....

    Once you're on the home screen with all the icons and you're on the one you want to move, press the ALT key (& the trackball). You should see a menu "move, hide, etc...), then move them where you want them to be.

    Let me know if that works and if not, someone will update this thread.

    Hope this does the trick
    Welcome!!

    I'm using the BB Dimension Zen theme and it has a home screen with only 5 icons down the left side. I want to change those icons to the ones of my preference. Thanks!

    From your home screen, go to the last icon that says Applications and click on it. Now you should see a full page of icons. The first 5 icons in the top row will be what you see on your main home screen. While you are on this page of icons, if you press your menu button, you will see the option to Move Icon, just highlight the icon you want moved, then go to Move Icon and place it in the first 5 and you should be all set.

    Let me know if there's anything else

    If you unlock all themes, there is one where you can have 6 icons! But, I have it on the Curve, but could never get it on the 8800...

    To be honest I don't think it's possible on the 8800. The theme I use on my Curve is the T-Mobile Zen - I believe it's the UK version...

    Hi Navilyn,

    Just wondering...how did you move your icons to the bottom of your home screen? I'm using the AT&T Zen theme and it always defaults to the left side.

    Also, how do I unlock all the themes? Any help would be appreciated.

    Thank you,

    Brant

    HERE is how you unlock all the themes and the one that navilyn is referring to is quite possibly the TIM Zen or the T-Mobile Zen, although I'm quite certain in the pic that he had posted is the T-Mobile zen with a custom background...mine is the TIM Zen.

    This thread has been very helpful, however, I just got the Blackberry 8310 from Rogers, and I am using the Theme: BB Dimension Today.

    I want to position my home screen to have my mail summary, blackberry messages, and media player - however, it keeps wasting space with the Call Log (which I never use). I want to find a way to exchange these within this theme as I enjoy the layout - just not fond of the pre-chosen selection of items to be on that screen.

    Any ideas guys? The Alt+wheel didn't allow any customization within this home screen at all.

    Cheers

    You guys are awesome with your inside knowledge. I am on Rogers and use the BB Dimension Today Theme. I find it very useful - especially the Call Log, but would like to add the Address book as an additional icon. Is that possible?
