Why are Cami's themes never featured here? There IS a reason you must never feature any of her themes. That's a shame, too...

It would be nice to have a theme that AT&T didn't have there hands on, maybe they will take your lead and contract you to make their future themes!

Don't have a Torch so neither interests me.Thanks anyway. Sure do wish, though, that when people say 97XX compatible they really mean it as none are compatible with the 9780.

I definitely want to give Empathy a try. Looks very slick. :) Love the smokey look of the wallpaper.

Deyrkroz

I would love to get the emphaty theme.
Because it's different from all the themes, this theme is not like a OS6 or like a OS5 to Blackberry, It's different, it's like the first telephones on the world :P!
And also the awesome of this it's the background, nice and perfect for a Black BB Torch.

Good luck to all!

That's cool that there's a Torch giveaway. Kind of feel like the non-Torch folks are getting left out a bit. Speaking for Eclipse WC, if CrackBerry will allow us, we'd like to offer a giveaway of Frequency Slide for the non-Torch folks if we can. Help spread the holiday joy.
