Corey Visto BB Pre Theme For Bold & Curve 8900

Corey Visto BB Pre Theme For Bold & Curve 8900

After quite a long hiatus, Corey Visto has returned with a great new theme called BB Pre.  Now I know that not many are fans of "look-alike" themes, but I think this one extremely well done.  It has a small clean banner along the top that doesn't take up too much real estate, as well as the crisp Pre icons for applications.  The menu screens and dialogs are crisp an easy to read, and the...

I mostly use my BlackBerry smartphone for email, pin and SMS messages, but my voice plan is a fantastic deal that I don't want to give up. Perhaps, in the back of my head, I have a tiny voice telling me to watch my usage. I then tell it that we don't have anything to worry about, so relax....
