    I can't get my themes back since I downloaded OS6 from Verizon. My favorite was 18 Icon. It shows in my apps at BB App world and syncs ok, but will not come up as a choice in options. Is it not supported by OS6?

    Much of OS 5 apps and what not are NOT going to work with OS 6. BB 6 has not been out long enough for vendors to have updated their apps to OS 6.

    I thought that too, but 18 Icon was only just released 12/13/10 with "new OS6 icons" Says any carrier and operating system above 4.6.0

    I sent an email to support.

    matt, themes are not yet supported on OS6. There is a rumored theme builder release date slated for end of jan or sometime feb. For now you'll have to use the one stock theme 6 comes with.

    No themes are compatible with OS6 yet for the 9650. Soon but not yet.

    Try uninstalling the app and then re-installing it.

    BB6 has been around since Torch launched in August, so it's been out long enough for vendors to update apps. Theme Builder6 hasn't been released for any devices other than Torch, so that's why there are no Bold 9650 themes.

    Sounds like a theme that looks like BB6 for devices runing 4.6/4.7/5.0.

    yep like everyone said no themes are available yet for os6 besides the torch. Theme builder should be updated before the end of the month so it shouldnt be long before we see some themes for our bolds.

    Apps and themes are not the same. You said "BB 6 has not been out long enough for vendors to have updated their apps to OS 6" which isn't true. Many apps have been BB6 ready for some time now.

    RIM hasn't released theme builder for 9650, so there aren't any themes.

    BB OS 6 is on i think 5 devices officially, torch being the first but there are several others. Devs just arent exactly leaping to redo software that they just wrote for OS 5 less than 1 year ago. Some of those devs just rewrote their apps for OS 5 coming from OS 4. And most will have to write them once again for QNX. Kinda makes turns you off from programming for RIM after a while

    None of the apps that I used on OS 5 are working with OS 6. So plz tell me how many apps are OS 6 ready when most of what I used will not work now??

    I've been using BerryWeather, BerryBuzz, QuickLaunch, Poynt, Google Sync, GMail, Google Maps, and Facebook with BB6 since 6.0.0.222 for Bold 9650 leaked back in mid-September 2010.

    I don't know what apps you have that don't work, nor do I know exactly how many apps are BB6 compatible. I guess you'll have to look for updates.

    All my apps are fine. I don't have many to begin with, but all are functional. Just no themes. Pretty impressed with 6 overall. Better browsing, media, etc... I can live without themes for a while, normally just get them when i start feeling bored with my phone.

    FWIW, Theme Builder 6 is supposed to be coming at the end of this month for Bold 9650. I don't use themes, so I don't know any more than that. There's a thread or two floating around here.

    PC is right, the persistant rumor is that TB6 will be released with support for all of the BB6 capable devices by end of month. There are numerous theme builders standing by to convert OS5 themes and develop new themes for BB6 devices as soon as the software is available. If the rumor is correct, we should begin seeing BB6 themes in a couple of weeks. I like themes and look forward to their arrival on the scene.

    As far as apps not working on BB6, there is a thread in this forum dealing with this issue. I know that if you have not recently downloaded some of the apps you don't have the compatible version, check your app source to see if updates are available. RIM released the necessary stuff that developers needed to update their software for BB6 months ago and developers have been making updates for a long time.
