    I located instructions on how to unlock other vendor's themes on the 9000 Bold.

    Here's AT&T's screen on the Bold:


    I edited out my location from the WiFi connection area.

    But this is what you can expect to see...

    Just curious....are you able to move the icons around so that you can set which ones you want on the home screen?

    Yes. The top 6 icons on the next page will appear on the home page screen at the bottom.

    See my next picture. I'm uploading 2 more right now.

    The top 6 icons on that screen will appear across the bottom of your home screen.

    Here's the music player launcher:



    Pretty nifty stuff.

    Its something to whet your appetites over the Labour Day weekend while you await the USA launch...

    This is what we get up here in Canada.

    I'm in my basement, and it switched back to EDGE on me.

    Google is your friend.

    "Unlock vendor theme" was the query term.
    There was a lengthy notepad file to read through and make the odd change.

    I was looking for a "Today" theme I saw on HoFo. But I must be blind, I didn't see it.

    I made a copy of my original .alx file and am going to revert back to the original right now.

    Edit your BlackBerry.alx file and Voila...except the today themes seem to be excluded as Spazmogen stated...

    <!-- AT&T US filesets -->
    <fileset Colour="True" Java="1.0" series="9000" _vendorID="102">
    <files>
    net_rim_theme_102_zen_480x320_b.cod
    </files>
    </fileset>
    change all the vendor ID'S to your carriers ID and ready to roll...the Rogers vendor ID is..107 so to load the AT&T theme it would look like..

    <!-- AT&T US filesets -->
    <fileset Colour="True" Java="1.0" series="9000" _vendorID="102|107">
    <files>
    net_rim_theme_102_zen_480x320_b.cod
    </files>
    </fileset>
    Or you can just simply remove all the vendor ID's.....
    Almost forgot...Brick you Berry don't blame me or CB... :P

    Is there a Today+ theme that comes installed? If so can we get a screenshot of that?

    I've seen a screen shot of it @ HoFo. I thought it was just a hidden/locked theme. If it is, I was not able to locate it.

    It was why I started editing the .alx in the first place.

    YES!

    I was on the ATT theme for about 30 minutes.

    i edited the alx file and i think it had about 5 carrier themes. the icons all looked the same, the only difference was the wallpaper.
