TorchDanboBerry by curve1967
Here we have a theme for the Torch featuring the ever popular Danbo. This theme is super cute, and has a lot of detail such as a Danbo focus icon, battery meter, animated hourglass, and BBM icon. Each screen has a different adorable wallpaper and I can say this theme is sure to please all you girls out there that love having Danbo on your BlackBerry. A lot of work went into this theme, and no detail has been overlooked. You'll definitely want to check this one out.
DCOM-ISH by immatt_D
This is a pretty nice looking theme for your Storm, and a first from forums member immatt_D. The BB6 icons and meters have been skinned red to match the red and yellow fonts, and a nice red and black gradient wallpaper completes this simple yet eye-catching theme.

GreenMe by TheIgster
If you're looking for a slightly different layout for your homescreen, GreenMe may have just what you're looking for. Six small icons in a rectangular pattern form a hidden dock towards the top of your screen. A hidden today on the bottom of the screen will make sure you never miss your important appointments and messages. Green highlights through out the theme, a custom battery meter, and hotkeys for Facebook, SMS, and profiles are all included along with a weather slot on the homescreen. Grab this one today for just $1.99!
ColorCirclesBB by BB-Freaks
Sometimes it's fun to have a playful theme on your BlackBerry, and that is exactly what ColorCirclesBB is: playful. The colorful wallpaper is home to 20 customizable 3D icons plus a weather slot and profiles icon. The menu fonts are also fully customizable, so no worries that you won't be able to see a tiny font. This looks like a really fun theme, and for the low price of $1.99, why not give it a try?
Breast Cancer Awareness - Peace, Love, & Hope Theme by coolblackberrythemes
October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month and in honor of that the team at coolblackberrythemes put together this awesome theme. I love how simple and easy to use their themes always are, and this is no exception. Cute pink icons and a heart font that I am in love with make this theme extra girly. As always, they have rounded up an assortment of wallpapers that fit the theme perfectly. Why not download this one and show your support this month? It's free!!
Profile by Raypho
Profile is a nature inspired them with soothing colors and backgrounds. Custom icons in a U shape are actually separate docks that you can choose to show or hide, and there is a hidden today area in the middle. This one is actually available for a variety of devices, so if you like it be sure to check out the link to see if it is compatible with your device.
Candy Color by MMMOOO
Bright icons in a hidden dock make Candy Color a theme for those of you that like a lot of color on your BlackBerry, but still like the ability to use a variety of wallpapers. Neutral banners and fonts make this perfect for just that, and the multicolored icons ensure that your favorite bright backgrounds will blend nicely. Candy Color is also available for multiple devices, so no one is left out. And the best part, this theme is free!
Kris over at bbt let me know about his new theme called SLATE. I checked it out, and it is really nicely put together and packed full of options.
A few of the features:
- Preview up to 18 today items (swipe between calendar, messages and
sms/mms) right on your homescreen, or hide them when you want an clean,
- Access 9 icons (and 9 more applications including keyboard shortcuts) from the homescreen.
- Hideable weather slot with icon text.
- Unique, custom-coded options panel allows you to customize banner opacity and tint, or turn them off.
- Available with OS6 icons or original custom icons
You are definitely going to want to go view all the screenshots for this theme. It's available right now to buy in the CrackBerry store for $3.99 (regularly $5.99) and I think this is a theme well worth the cost. But, if you're feeling lucky this week, leave a comment below to be entered to win one of 50 free copies of SLATE for your BlackBerry. One entry per person please.
