    I can't use zen themes. I NEED to be able to see my calendar and missed calls or else I'll totally forget about them. But I like cool (and whimsical and pretty) themes too! However, almost all the themes are made in zen format, w/ the exception of a few. Is there a reason that those of us who like/need/want Today themes have to search so hard for them?

    I think its simply because the zen themes are far more popular.

    That sucks. I'm sure I'm not the only person who likes the today themes. Or judging by the amount of them, I'm wrong.

    I like today themes, but I prefer to be able to see my wallpaper and have icons on the side. I like the cleaner look of the zen themes. Have you tried nancydrewthemes.com? She has a lot of pretty ones!

    I like Today themes too, but the Zen and L themes are far more popular because you can see the background more. I like the idea of more background more, but without my calendar on my homescreen I am lost!

    Jenay, I love Nancy's themes. I also like Jccalandra. I have Nancy's punk Hello Kitty as my theme right now, actually!

    shooptek, lost is not even the word for me. w/o my calendar, I'm useless.

    Today themes work the best for me as well ...
    Also any free themes are just junk these days. The fonts are a pain in the *** and generally not very user friendly. Maybe I'm just picky--Vodfone white/red theme has been my favorite for about a year now.

    Obviously I used the incorrect wording.
    I just haven't found very many "free" themes that I have liked. I prefer themes that are font specific to what the device is set at.
    pearly--I would like to see what you have available in 4.5
    Thanks

    Yh I was thinking the exact same thing. There are soo many nice zen themes which I would love if there well made into today theme. I normally use zen but since I started my new job at the aiport, I figured it would be best to put my roster in the calendar instead of referring to paper all the time

    I have the PS3 theme that is floating around--used it for one day only.
    Had it been a today style theme I probably would still be using it--just sayin.

    Aw. Now this isn't fair. There are a lot of great free themes out there if you take the time to look. As mentioned above, Nancy Drew's themes are tops as far as I (or anyone else) am concerned. I have never once payed for a theme, as I think it's a waste of money personally, and all my themes have been nothing but awesome.

    Well to help prove me wrong--can someone post a decent today theme on this thread, for the 8300 with 4.5?

    Anyone?

    Went to the link with my BB and still getting the following message:

    Sorry, no themes are currently available for your BlackBerry device and OS.

    Guess nobody has links to offer/support the theory of "decent" free themes.

    I would not mind sharing but I do not know how to upload them. Actually I do not know how to show screen shots so that a person would know if they were interested and find it was worth downloading. If I could do that one things you would have more today themes than you could shake a stick at. My themes will work on the 8300 and 8800 series. If someone could give me instructions on how to get screen shot and save them I would share gladly.

    I too am a Today Theme person who can't seem to find any. Also, I have an additional problem...I have PEARL. Most of the theme's I find are for 8300 +.

    Another vote for the Today Plus theme - all the good of the today theme (messages and calender appts on the home screen) with icons on the side with a flick of the trackball. OP - check out this thread - I got my theme through there.

    I am a Today person, and would like to see more of them if they are ones that I like to have. Everyones tastes are different. I always look for Today first then Zen, but have come across the mix of Today and Zen mix which really works for me.
