    I've tried a few and I always end up going back to the 'stock' Blackberry 6 it came with, which is a bit frustrating as some of these themes cost a few dollars.

    have to say I agree. keep wanting to find something that really blows me away and haven't really found one that makes keep using it... add to that then when you download the free weather plus app, it provides free push to homescreen capability and I have a hard time using any other theme.

    If someone found a way to do a stock theme with upgrades to things like the top banner (clock, etc) and added in a weather dock, I might find myself changing my mind.

    I find the Excite theme pretty good, with the combination of using quicklaunch. (:

    I find Stock_Plus by VincentThePrince 2010 works nicely, 10 icon dock that you can hide at the bottom and one permanent quick launch in the top left corner. And when in landscape, it switches to a "today" view. I got it free in AppWorld a few days ago.

    I am using SuperTilt v4.2. It's free on the BB themes forum here. It has hidden docs on all four predesigned hotspots at the corners as well as 4 customizable touchscreen hotspots. Once you get it set up, it really is nice. Oh, and you can customze the wallpaper as well.

    I keep going back to BBT's theme TINT. It's quite nice and fluid. There are different options for color and custom/original icons, hidable today spot, you can customize wallpaper, it supports landscape, and you can use your trackpad with it.
    It is a paid theme. I love it and feel it was worth the price though.

    There is a thread in the 9800 theme forum if you'd like to find out more.

    None tried on my Torch have been entirely smooth. The latest try 6Plus http://forums.crackberry.com/f220/6p...4-tabs-598353/ is the best of the lot so far. Paid and free all seem to have small glitches at times. Maybe a result of the theme designer program currently in use.

    I really like Vertiberry media lite, as I play a lot of music and take a lot of pictures. Great theme

    have found most not to be as good as the stock BB 6 theme, which seems to have it all covered!
    The closest is ethemes firecracker HTC theme, it is quite smooth and is graphically brilliant on the torch. Ecruz has traditionally been the best theme creator for blackberry, I always buy his themes to support him, even if I don't use them alot as I know if he continues making them, there will be one that I love soon enough. For Torch, this rang true with his HTC theme! Worth every cent as an alternative to the stock theme.

    I second the vote for HTC Firecracker. I like the functionality it gives me.

    I'm with Powerhog! Stock plus by Vince the Prince is the only theme I use.

    Stock 6 is cool but I found "Excite" to be very smooth and elegant as well. The clock is pretty cool too

    I have the Slate white theme. I love it. It allows my wallpaper to be displayed with little distractions. Just hitting the Blackberry button brings up everything I need. The theme is very smooth and simple and I've had no problems.

    Although we all have our favorites, I've used nearly every free and/or payed theme in the theme section as well as a few from other sources. I can honestly say that EVERY theme has its faults and little glitches. Now I know someone will bash me for that but let me explain. Whether its the beta theme builder or just crappy coding, every theme has its little quirks.

    With that being said, some of my favorites include:

    Anyone of BBT's themes although I'm very partial to Tint

    Windows 7 professional by TDM design's(my current theme)

    Stock plus by Vince the prince

    Vertiberry

    The original Ecruz htc theme(firecracker update just sucks now, way to much going on)

    I go with the stock BB theme for me. Never found a theme, purchased or otherwise, that didn't have bugs somewhere. Not only that but something to consider is the memory used up when the stock theme is already smooth, cool to use, and pretty darn fast
