The great thing about BlackBerries is that not only are they great straight out of the box, but that there are lots of ways that you can personalize and improve them, with themes being a perfect example. Basically, themes offer a way, along with BlackBerry accessories, to make your BlackBerry stand out from the crowd.
By installing a theme on to your BlackBerry, you can specify precisely the way that almost everything on it is displayed. They work in much the same way as the theme system used on Microsoft Windows - literally one click gives a totally different look and feel.
There's a range of unique themes available to suit your tastes and interests - some being free and needing to be paid for. You can find them by visiting online BlackBerry accessories and applications stores, where you will find hundreds to choose. Whatever you're looking for, you'll be able to find. They have everything from elegant and classy business themes to fun and quirky entertainment related ones. Alternatively, if you're the creative type, you can also make your own themes.
To create your own theme, you need to use the BlackBerry Theme Studio v5.0, which is free to download, and pretty easy to use. All you need is some creativity and some skill with graphics software. On downloading BlackBerry Theme Studio, you'll see that there are two products contained within the suite - BlackBerry Composer and BlackBerry Theme Builder.
Graphic creation and editing is done within the BlackBerry Composer. It has lots of nice graphic design features built into it and is great for creating and adding life to your images without having to buy other software.
BlackBerry Theme Builder is the theme design part of the suite. The selection and allocation of the images is done from here. It's also where you can decide what, if any, sounds and animations are used, which fonts to use, and whereabouts on the screen your menus and icons are displayed.
If you fancy making some extra money for yourself, and there is even the potential to make some seriously big money, then you can sell the themes that you create on BlackBerry accessories and applications stores. These online stores can also be used to get inspiration for creating themes. Browse through the list of top sellers and most sought after themes and you'll have no shortage of ideas - you could even use them as templates for your own ones.
So, to summarize, having a theme, especially one that you have created yourself, and some cool Blackberry accessories, really helps make a BlackBerry truly your own.
