BowBerry by MariaG
Girls, if you're looking for a cute pink and black theme, check out BowBerry by MariaG. With shades of pink throughout, the custom black icons and text really pop. I love the font and little bow details on each screen that make this a cute and girly theme. OS 5 devices get a sliding hidden dock, and those on BB6 have the standard layout. BowBerry is available for $3.99 for BlackBerry 8330/50i, 85xx, 89xx, 9000, 9630, 9700, and 9800.
Looking for a wallpaper friendly theme with access to a ton of apps right from your home screen? Take a look at Facile by Madboy. This theme features four menus on your home screen (apps, media, messages, and utility). Apps holds a dock of 5 user defined icons that show when you click the word Apps. Media, Messages, and Utility each contain 4-5 items in text form that provide quick and easy access to a multitude of applications. I really like the font and layout of Facile, and love that there is so much hidden away yet still within easy reach. This theme is designed for 480x360 devices on OS 5.0 and BB6, and you can grab it now on sale for just $1.49 (regularly $2.49).

Element brings to you a wallpaper friendly homescreen with subtle custom features. The semi-transparent banners, dotted signal meter and large numeric battery meter bring a minimalistic feel to the theme that will look great with almost any wallpaper. The hidden mini dock and OCD slots provide the ability to maximize your homescreen space, while still having access to all your much needed apps and icons, with the added convenience of hotkeys. 9800 users can enjoy easy access to their calendar by touching the date on the home screen in both portrait and landscape mode. Element supports landscape navigation on Torch. Fonts are defaulted throughout the theme for font friendliness, with the exception of the home screen. You'll definitely want to take a look at the individual screenshots at the link below. You can pick up Element on sale now for $1.49 (regularly $2.49) for your BlackBerry 9630/50, 97xx, or 9800.

Music lovers this one is for you. RockON features a unique half circle dock on the home screen, with all of your meters, clock and date in the middle. While this doesn't make for the most wallpaper friendly of themes, I can see how it would have a lot of potential for change, if that's your thing. The wallpapers throughout are all music oriented, which really pulls the theme together and keeps the flow, while making it interesting and fun. RockON is on sale currently for $3.99 (regularly $5.99) and is compatible with BlackBerry 8330/50i, 85xx, 89xx, 9000, 91xx, 93xx, 95xx, 96xx, 97xx, and 9800.

Summer is basically upon us, and it's time to bust out the bright and cheerful themes to match the season. Refresh is just that, full of bright icons, beautiful backgrounds, and awesome little details like the custom battery and signal meters. You also get a hidden today for most devices, so you'll never miss what's important. I especially like the color scheme in messages and menus, and the font is awesome too. You can pick up Refresh in BlackBerry App World for $2.99 for most BlackBerry smartphones.

BB-Freaks is at it again, and this time they've developed a series of themes called NextGen. Available in five different colors (green, red, orange, purple, and blue), NextGen will bring a totally new look to your BlackBerry. If you use media frequently on your device, you will especially appreciate the 3 static icons for Music, Pictures, and Videos on your home screen. You also get 9 user defined icons, so everything is right there for you with no hunting around. The home screen graphics are impeccable, and while those that are addicted to wallpaper changing will likely want to pass on this one, I know there are many of you out there that will really appreciate the transformation that NextGen gives your BlackBerry. You can pick up NextGen for $5.99 for BlackBerry 85xx, 89xx, 9000, 91xx, 93xx, 95xx, 96xx, 97xx, and 9800.
