    That's because 4.5 OS isn't an official release! You can find themes from other sources for 4.5 though, just not from rim.

    To download themes designed for 4.2 OS to your 4.5 OS installed handheld, is quite simple. Use a 4.2 OS handheld simulator to tune in RIM mobile site, locate the real *.jad link address, copy it to your real 4.5 OS Browser, and let the process begin.

    Honestly OTA is not the key. It is a temporary solution. I post it because I thought you were able to manage the simulator and Email & MDS simulator things. But, my point is even if you can locate those *jad address, they might be expired, who knows? RIM is so unpredictable. It releases Surreal theme which led OS 4.5 devices into 523 bricks, it releases animated theme Stargazer by Plazmic theme builder but never give 3rd party theme builders a chance to use it, only leaves us a buggy one.
    Wait, how many themes are there on RIM mobile site? Stargazer, Surreal (4.5 killer), Today Plus, Scribble, some sort of Aqua style and a pinky girlish one ---- not very sensational or perfect imo. Some have great structures, but icons are way too informal or do not fit the whole vibe. But since you asked for them, I will post them with desktop friendly *.cod format later.

    That is not entirely true. There are other carriers out there that have released OS 4.5 as their carrier release.

    AND..not all 4.2 themes will work on OS 4.5. Take the "Surreal" theme for example....

    All themes EXCEPT surreal are ok, surreal WILL brick your bb! Two bugs I know of; stargazer will not let you change wallpaper with OS4.5, stargazer and today plus all icons will reset to default order after battery pull/reset.

    What if a theme does happen to brick my Curve? Is there a way to go back to another theme with the phone or do I have to go through the trouble of re-installing the OS from my PC?

    You'd have to go through your pc to re-install the OS. Not as easy as it sounds, when I did it, my pc wouldn't even recognize my bb. Fortunately, there's ways to get past that, but it's such a pain in the rear.
