To delete a theme: go to menu>options>advanced options>applications. There search for the plazmic file with the name of the theme. It should be something like this "com_plazmic_theme_name". If you can't see the name, press the trackpad on it once and it should give more info. Once you find the one to delete, highlight it and press menu>delete. You will need to restart the phone, so press yes when prompted to restart.

Hi guys. PLEASE help, my phone does not ask for a pin when I switch it on and I do want it to ask for a pin how do I fix this? And also I am unable to delete a theme at the options menu because there is no "delete" function when I highlight a theme?

LOL..that is y when i snap a pic under the sunlight also the quality of the pic is still awesome..but,if it is doesnt has enough light,it also still bright..enough to view anything n texting..then what makes u made such a comment like that??

the 8520 is about as bright and the sun. so u really need sunnies while ur looking at it unless u want to burn ur eyes out. 8900 i'd more compare to the moon. easy on the eyes.

hi!! i am absolutely in love wit the bb 8520 but really apprehensive about it!!
nobody in my circle has it and i am confused if ill be able to use it properly!
a better deal could be nokia e71 coz i am kinda familiar wit nokia phones and looks like a safe deal!!!
and yea do we need to take a plan thru BIS for accessing WIFI too?

> In reply to sgaawc @ 2010-03-25 16:38 from puhm - click to readWhat a narrow-minded way of thought. You obviously know nothing about smartphones. EDGE is perfectly decent for emails and chatting. Even surfing the web for certain things. As a consumer phone, internet isn't the best thing blackberry has but they are releasing their webkit browser soon. Especially when 3g isn't available everywhere or is far more expensive than EDGE.
And agreed, Blackberrian. 2.5G is pretty fast on this device. If a 3g device doesn't have HSDPA it isn't that much faster than a 2.5g device.
