    Hello All,

    I have tried searching the forums and have put out some feelers out there with no clear answer. I do apologize in advance however if the question has already been answered in the forum.


    Yesterday, I received my new Z30. I proceeded to perform a “switch device” on Link and got that all transferred. I did my BES10 activation so finally got the device setup.

    1st thing I did was to open the CB app :P

    Immediately opened to dark theme. The first thing going through my mind was sweet…dark theme

    Looked for the settings to switch to light theme…no dice…checked BBM, Text, Contact’s….Nadda!

    Did some research on CB and learned that because of my device, the CB app defaults to dark theme with no way to change it. Okay so cool…that answers that question. Checked my wife’s Z10 which was running yesterdays official code and noticed that dark them was available for certain apps/services so I knew I wasn’t losing it!

    My question is….do all 10.2 codes support dark/light themes or is it only certain codes? I am running the latest as per my carrier


    Device
    Z30
    STA100-5
    10.2.0.210

    Thoughts??

    You have to go into the app itself, say contacts, BBM, and swipe down into the app settings and set it there.

    There is no universal dark theme setting. It's done at the app level so far.

    Unfortunately its not. It's on my wife's Z10 but not on my code that I'm running on my Z30. I compared them side by side. Dark/Light theme is simply not supported on my device at the moment. Not sure if its supposed to be. Trust me, I'm not losing it...its not supported....Just wondering why? Bug in the OS or does 10.2.0.210 just not have it.......

    Edit: I realize its not a global configuration and at the app level....

    Yes, I think there is no option yet on the Z 30 to choose between white and dark.

    I actually want to disable it but it won't let me on the currant Z30 code. CB app defaults to dark based on the hardware platform. Guess we'll have to wait

    Is that only for the Z30? Can it be done on updated Z10?

    The option to choose dark theme for SMS, Calendar, Contacts and BBM is only available on OS 10.2.017xx and above. The Z30's came with 1521 so the option to change will not be there.

    The CB10 gets the dark theme like the Q10 due to the hardware, the AMOLED screen. The reason for the dark theme to be introduced in the first place.

    Hopefully the Z30 will be an update soon. I really miss the dark theme from when I had a Q10.

    Why would you want the light themes on the Z30? All you'll end up doing is using more battery than necessary due to the AMOLED screen...

    I have 10.2.0.1767 and I don't have the dark theme option for BBM. I think its 10.2.1.X only?

    Do you have BBM Channels installed? The option should be there if you don't .. scroll down to the bottom in BBM settings

    Official or leak as long as 17xx and above, you should have the option to choose themes.
