    OK, so I have searched and searched these forums. I have came across ONE very nice theme that I downloaded OTA. It's called Flare. I forgot which thread I found it in but I will find it again to share with all who have yet to see it.

    With this being said; what is everyone's favorite FREE theme for the 8520/8530?

    Yea I liked flare for a while but then got bored with it really quick just like I do with the heaps of themes I have. I must say tho, the theme that has been keeping me happy for a while is a rather simple L theme. And that's exactly what its called to. There is an OTA with weather as well as the standard without weather one. There's another L theme out but there are a few things it could do improving on. So at the moment the simple L Theme is my fav!!

    Lol I didn't actually say there was something great about the L theme. I merely stated that its keeping me happy and its my fav, for now. To be honest I usually only jump around either when I'm dancing or after being given a gift that I have wanted for a long time. Up to this day I have never jumped around from installing a theme. I don't know anyone who has, but like you say.. I may be wrong though lol. However, seeing that you asked a question, I shall answer! I find that the L themes subtle modifications combined with its simplicity provides me with what I want in a perfect theme! Its simple yet looks good imo.

    I currently have 2 themes on my phone.

    The first is Purple Flame that I am currently using and I really like it. I don't like a lot of stuff on my home screen and I really like the hidden today. Got it from the BB store. The link is below.

    Purple Flame w/ Hidden Today - Themes BlackBerry Apps - Crackberry BlackBerry Apps Store

    My 2nd theme is called Xscale Orange and it was replaced by the Purple flame. It has a bottom dock that can be hidden. It was made by CB user ABENKZ. The link is below.

    Some new themes =(
    I know there are a few designers out there like phishgirl who are currently working on several..but it would be awesome if we could have a couple modern type of themes with color options that were released for the 8530.

    I'm also using the Purple Flame theme. I really like it - especially since it matches my purple Curve.

    Are there any themes out there that allow you to alter placement of icons and date and stuff? Or not even show them up front at all? I am new to blackberry and realize I maybe asking something stupid but the only way you learn is to ask.

    A theme can't be altered from your BB in the way you asked about. You can rearrange the order of icons on the home screen for most themes, but not the clock or where the icons are placed.
    You can look for themes that are "wallpaper friendly" if you don't want a lot on your home screen. This usually means that the icons are in a hidden dock, tiny in size, or not on the home screen at all.
    And if you can't find what you're looking for, there are a few threads started in the forums for requests. Offering to donate for a custom theme never hurts, and your request would probably be filled faster. (Just my opinion anyhow.)

    And hey, Welcome to BB and CrackBerry! You've come to the right place for your questions.
