Elecite Releases Scenic As A Free BlackBerry Theme Download

Tried Messages->Options->General Options. "SMS and Email Inboxes" - choose Separate or Theme Controlled?

Thanks Brian! I like having that inbox separate from the others and I've never paid attention to that setting before. Wanted to let you know I appreciate you taking a minute to post the advice.

Is this a Today theme?

Any chance it has a weather icon slot?

Looks nice. Will download either way. Thanks Elicite!

I must say i am an avid crackberry user. I enjoy your information and the free stuff that comes along every time. Yesterday i was on and was surprised that this beautiful theme from Elecite was available for all BlackBerry Models except for the Pearl 8130 series. I know the pearl is sort of a dinosaur when it comes to Blackberries but i was hoping you would have it. Oh well i guess i can only hope and dream of a nice beautiful theme to come along for the outdated dinosaur Pearl series. I will continue to as usual enjoy crackberry.com hoping that apps and themes will still be available!!!!

We all go through it :). I knew how to do but sometimes I still forget where I need to go to do it - a good self reminder! :)

It is a GORGEOUS theme, no doubt! However, it killed the hell out of my file free and memory! :( Sad panda.

Good one. I did not think of that. Thank you very much. I was about to delete the theme but will not because of your help.

Again, thanks a lot for this.

The icon is titled "phone" and it was hidden in the applications folder when I first download the theme.

Side note- does anyone know if you can make this icons bigger? I have 6 across on my Curve 8330 (preloaded themes have 5 across)

I like the theme and it looks great on my 8900 but I didn't like how there wasn't just an OTA link to the theme, but I had to enter all this information as if I was paying. I didn't put any real information of course, but it was a hassle to do that for a free theme that was for "customer appreciation"

As usual, elecite has created another exceptional theme. I change themes ona regular basis and i find myself always returning to one of my favorite elecite themes; I think this theme will be one i return too. i have noticed that elecite themestend to create a memory leak on the storm and this no exception.

Their themes are beautiful, but on my Storm I lose memory and I get the spinning dial on their themes more than any other theme. I was just trying to figure out if it happens more if I change the background image from the one the theme comes with.

Memory leaks occur because when you switch themes, the device still keeps the older theme loaded in the memory. A good ol battery pull usually does the trick!

Some people also have issues like that if they have more than 3 themes installed. Again, another flaw in the system, which you can avoid by keeping no more than 3 installed on one device at a time :)

Nice. It could be "wallpaper friendly" but the icons are a bit hard to read and the banner for the clock / date are too big in my taste. It only shows about half of wallpaper.

Nice of them to release us a free theme (THANK YOU!!!) but if this is one of their better works I'm not sure.

No clickable areas of the screen, the buttons don't really mesh with the third party icons well, the only really cool feature is how the theme changes with the background image, but even then it is only on the "home screen".

And it would have taken me forever to learn what the different icons meant. Calculator and Clock were easy but the rest didn't really make any sense.

I've looked everywhere, unhid everything, and cannot see the calculator app on my 8330!

UPDATE: Found it under an Applications folder the theme created.

every elecite theme i got my hands on has been a hog on memory
according to a couple people here this is the same issue as well, if they really wanted to show costumer appreciation besides giving away a free theme(thank you for this) then how about an customer appreciation no leak memory theme!!!! theme does look nice.

Thanks for the free theme, but the icons are hard to decipher and I really wish it had hidden today/messages.

No SMS/MMS Icon, it is not shown anywhere on the device and the inbox count at the top of the page is not present either. I switched to my default and there it is.

Here's how to fix it:

Go to Messages->Options->General Options "SMS and Email Inboxes" - choose Separate...as of right now it's probably Theme Controlled

in this place(scenic),ask me for a purchase code,where is this?,isn't free? I have a 8820, please help me

I went to the website, filled out the form, and got my confirmation email. I downloaded it but now I don't see the theme under Options>themes, but I see it under the list in Options>Advanced Options>Applications. What am I doing wrong. I have not had this problem before and yes I did a battery pull.

Did you definately download the current correct theme for your device?

I have it running and I have to say that it is really nice for a freebie

Besides being free right now which is pretty awesome, this theme is great. Appearance wise it's very attractive and I like how each icon is crisp and the color schemes are a good touch. It does not slow down my BB (I have a tour) The time and date display is docked at the top of the screen and the battery and service area bars have clean lines and bars to them as well.

I rate this theme very high. usually when something is free I expect it be crap, but with this I was pleasantly surprised.

great theme but why in the hell do themes not have a seperate sms icon. i have blackberry storm one for the curve and it has it.

OH and the alarm for OS 5 on the 83xx still doesn't work unless you use the stock theme .

Wow i clicked on the link and i see that crackberry users crahsed the site LOL! Now i cant even get a theme!

Your SMS icon is always there guys just go to your messages folder, hit menu and select Options/General Options and under SMS MMS & Inboxes, select "Separate". Hit menu again and save. This will bring back your SMS icon.

Other applications such as Call Log cannot be deleted/removed by installing a theme. If you cannot find it in your application screen, I'm sure it's just hidden inside one of your folders...perhaps the applications folder.

If you installed the theme and it won't show up under Options/Theme, there are 2 reasons. First, if you're using an older device such as 88xx or 83xx, make sure you have OS 4.5 or higher installed.
Second, make sure you download the correct version of the theme on your device. Double check your model and double check which model version of the theme you installed.

hey i have bought 2 themes from you in the past and have like both of them very much thank you for a free one

i had no clue about the sms feature !

this theme owns ! lol :-)

is the set alarm feature not working because 5.0 for the 83xx is not technically out ?

Alright it's an attractive and very comprehensive theme, but i lose interest after that. NO profile indicator, even with all that blank space around the clock. NO hidden today and NO weather slot. This theme would be perfect with the addition of hidden today, a selectable profile icon in the banner, and two additional small icons in the upper right and left corners.

Not to sound sexist but this is a great theme for a woman's Storm. Very feminine looking to me. Nice but too "girly". Also couldn't figure out what all the icons were. Still all in all a nice theme but not for me. Thanks Elecite.

It could defiantly work great as a feminine theme BUT the beauty about this theme is that you can change the wallpaper to whatever you like! You'll quickly see that this theme can easily look just the way you want it to.

went to the site downloaded it (i got the tour) it shows up under the apps when i go thru the menu but i can't select it it's not in the themes option..... would it have anything to do with me running the 5.0.230 OS? and if yes which one should i select from the download link?

I just downloaded it and it does look great on my curve :) Only thing is, Im not sure how to customize the icons....anyone know how to do this?

Thank you for the beautiful and elegant theme. Frankly, it is the nicest theme I have seen so far, paid or free. Keep up the excellent work!

This theme is beautiful. The only item I like to have is a profile slot on the home screen. But its so sexy that I can look past it.

Hi all,
PLEASE HELP!!!

I'm a complete newbie to this and am trying desperately to download the Scenic theme to my Curve 8900. I successfully received the confirmation email and everytime I click on the link it takes me to the downlaod section and starts downloading. VERY SLOWLY and eventually I get an alert on my screen telling me the download failed because the connection time logged out or something. I've tried this 3 times and the same message keeps appearing.

I've downloaded other things previously and it has always worked. I've got plenty of free memory and a full battery and a good GPRS signal so I really don't have a clue what might be wrong but I REALLY WANT THIS THEME :(

Someone please help me?

Thanks in advance :)

Installed it, looked very nice. Tried to decipher the icons for 15 seconds and I couldnt. Off it went!

This theme is sweet.. Thnx bla1ze, always coming with good content.. It runs smooth, nice and detailed but not complicated.. SwEEt Christmas!!

I Really like this theme.. I am newish to BB.. play with EVERYTHING I can get my hands on for free.. most themes made me laggy.. this one is smooth sailin'....Great Great Great :)

I've tried downloading it about 10 times now, this is the message i get telling me it has failed:

"907 Invalid COD
TCP receive timed out"

What does this mean?
I've only had my Blackberry a week so I'm not completely hands on with it yet.

Please someone help :<

Usually you would get the 907 error message when you're trying to install it using desktop manager/PC.

Scenic MUST be installed via OTA only which means the download link needs to be sent to your device and clicked on directly from your BlackBerry - no PC involved.

NOTE: To install OTA you MUST have internet/Wi-Fi on your device.

Thanks for your reply. Each time I have tried downloading it, it has been directly from the email link sent in the email to my blackberry. No PC involved whatsoever. I have got internet/Wifi on my blackberry which is why I am getting so confused. Plus my device is 4.6 so that rules out the fact that I should have over 4.5

It's so confusing. I downloaded a theme from some other website before and it downloaded within seconds but this just isn't working for me. Other members who have commented on this article say they also have a 8900 curve so I just dont know what it is :(

The site took all my info.

I clicked on e-mail the file to me, and got squat !

I tried several e-mail = Sqaut

Beautiful FREE theme!!!! There are a few things that are a little annoying though such as someone had stated above about some of the icons dont make sense.. and they are hard to find however ill probably keep it for awhile i like the way it looks! THANKS ELECITE!!

As others have stated, the theme isn't showing up for me even after a reboot. I've downloaded the Tour version, did a QuickPull and nothing happened. I'm in the process now of doing a real reboot with the battery out. Don't know what the difference would be, though. There have been several people with this problem.

Okay, after a reboot with the battery out, the theme shows up. QuickPull didn't get the job done.

Thank you for the awesome theme. Currently I use BB flip and tired of the themes I have available. Again thank you and it will encourage me to visit your site when I actually decided to buy another theme.

Horrible... if you're a interface wh0re its nice, but it hard to make out the icons and the glossy fade on the top makes it hard to see the battery gauage.

I just downloaded it to my Tour. I'm going to play around with it and put my icons back in order. The theme is pretty sleek though! :-)

After installing the theme and having a chance to play w/it I very much like it still. The only thing I might fix is the Profile icon be accessible on the top left corner.

It seems the font size doesn't change globally as it does in the stock theme, I'm using the Bold.

All the menus and messages stick to a bigger font after I've adjusted the size to 7 in the options.

Any thoughts?

There are a few other things that I'm not a fan of but that's number 1

I'm going back to my original theme for the time being.

I think this is a very nice theme, been playing with it awhile, everybody keeps talking about the profile, just hit the "F" key on the keypad and your profile comes up. That's how I get to my profile works great for me See Yeah!!!

This theme looks amazing just like all of their themes, but im having difficulties downloading it... I enter in all of my info and then i proceed. It then tells me that i have to enter in a billing email, when there is no spot for an email address (billing one that is). Any one else have any issues entering their info/same prob as me? Any help???
ps i agree w/ gravytrm... why dont some themes have a sms icon?
*sigh* the questions of life...

theme is nice and all
looks great, crisp, very clear on my 8900
but its just a little too plain for me
the time and date display are a little too big
but it is a nice theme just not for me
i might use it though
but not now cause i got a halloween theme on
and nex month and im ussing that awesome crakberry theme i got from here (btw thanks for that crackberry) then prolly a christmas one so but after that mayb :]

Do not kill me, but I want a version compatible with the Bold 9700 which I'm going to own!. Can any one confirm if the Scenic BlackBerry 96xx Tour Theme (for example), could be applied also for the Bold 9700

Last night, while sleeping (about 7 hours), my battery went from 95% to 35%. That is the first time that has ever happened, usually I might lose 5% to 15% battery. Could it have anything to do with this theme? I've changed themes A LOT and never had this kind of battery drain. I doubt it's related, but thought I'd see if anyone else had a similar result. This is on an 8330 Curve. Thanks.

This is a nice looking theme and thank you for offering it for free. The icons need more clarity as to what they represent (IMO). The best icons are Messages, Address Book, Calendar, and Help.

This is an awesome theme.

However on my 8310 the text is far too big. How can i get the theme to resize the text, especially in the email screen, when i change the text under screen/keyboard to size 7 even, it stays the same, except some menus are smaller.

downloaded it to my storm 9530 just fine but now I am unable to set or reset my contact alerts when I go to the sounds function. The only options I have now are LED and vibration, I cannot adjust the volume or select ringtones or anything like that from this theme or the original theme that was on the phone. Can anyone help? I want all my functions back (and I tried several battery pulls, they didn't work)

Hi, great theme, but...
After install my battery dropped from fully loaded to less then 10% in about 5 or 6 ours. Normely my battery is about 30 or 40 % loaded when I go to bed (maybey some 18 ours of use).
After 2 days I set an other theme, and the problem was gone....
greatings, Peter

I am loving this theme. It's like it was made just for me. I just can't see myself looking for any other themes out there. You guys have outdone yourselves on this theme...Thnx a bunch.
