We're BACK! Let's get started!
I'm gonna do this demonstration with my new Curve 8900. If you have one, this may look familiar to you.
*This is your default theme and it is the ugliest thing I have seen on a Berry, ever. I cannot have any of you continue along this path of fashion suicide. It's time to switch it up.*
Step #1: Find a website that has themes.
For the sake of this article, I am going to use Nancy Drew Themes website for my point of reference.
*Welcome to NancyDrewThemes.com! This website is very easy to navigate and Nancy Drew has themes that tickle my little Princess Lola fancy! Maybe not the best for you, fellas, but there are other websites for you!*
Step #2: Select the theme of your liking.
In this case, I am choosing the Hello Kitty theme that is like second on her page. Don't get it twisted, yall, there are some sites that you gotta get into and dig around like discount shopping in bargain bins. I'm gonna let yall experience that one yourselves, though.
*The power words to look for are "FREE OTA". What this means is "FREE" and "easily downloaded onto your device". "OTA" is "over the air", meaning that all one has to do is visit the link from their phone, or email the link to the email addy on their phone, and get the theme without a computer. Zip files are always an option, also, but if you aren't familiar with D.M. (Desktop Manager), I wouldn't recommend it.*
Step #3: Click on the download link.
Because this link leads you directly to enslyv.com, there will be some registering taking place. It will ask your for your name and email addy and blah, blah, blah. It is all a minor technicality that you WILL encounter frequently. I am not going through the registration process. It is pretty self-explanatory.
*Post registration, this is where you end up. I took three screen shots so that you get the full effect of scrolling down on the page. On the last shot you will observe the actual OTA links.*
Step #4: Select the appropriate OTA link! **Be advised: This link must be selected from your Berry or it will not work!**
When selecting your OTA links, you must be sure that they match your device, both, in operating system, as well as model number. The sites you will visit will be specific about which OTA links are for which phones. In this case, Nancy Drew only does themes for the Curves 8900 and 83xx, as well as the Bold.
*These are the OTA links, up close and personal. There are two. I will select the on that says "8900_hellopeace" because it is indicative of the Curve 8900 we are working with. Once again, I will remind you that there are TWO ways to use these OTA links and but ONE place to do it. You must either copy, paste and email the OTA link to the addy on your Berry, or visit the site from your phone browser. You CANNOT access it from your computer.*
*This is what you will see when the link is selected from your phone. Select the download button and you are well on your way to downloading your first theme.*
Step #5: Once the download is complete, apply your new theme.
If you downloaded the appropriate link, this next part should be a breeze.
*Select "Options" from your main menu and, once there, scroll down until you get to "Theme".*
*The "Theme" menu will look like this, once inside. Select your new theme, in order to apply it.*
*...And this is what success looks like!!*
Themes are a very fun way to express yourself! Once you get through it once, it will be like breathing. FAR too easy! (LOL) I'm gonna give you guys a few links so that you can shop around and find something very uniquely you and not so... Uniquely me!
And last but not least, our example of the day...
If you have any additional questions, you know how to find me! Hit me on the business Berry!
