Two things everyone loves. Contests and Give Aways. When the owner of Visto Themes emailed me the other week and said "You up for a give away?", what could I say other than Let's do it!

Contest: Login to your CrackBerry account (you must be a registered user) and leave a comment on this post, be it giving Corey a big thanks or maybe share the name of your favorite Visto theme with others. 5 users will be selected from the comments and will be offered ANY theme that Visto Themes currently offers. That's it! Simple, and you get at free chance to win a great new theme. Good luck folks and enjoy your new theme!

ktgould

I'm fast approaching my one year anniversary on Crackberry, and I must say that Crackberry has been a savior to my Blackberry woes in more than a few instances. Thanks to Crackberry and to the community for keeping my BB running and my frustration low!

gvegas864

I've had my first BB for less than a week (Bold). CB.com was instrumental in helping me choose the right BB. The help in the forums is top notch. (i'm on my 3rd OS .219 LOL)

StarrsNana

Just wanted to say thanks for the contest and the free H20 theme.

gbeebe

thanks for the first one! lol

chicagoan

What do Storm users get?
What good is a freebie if it's not really free?
I feel left out and unloved. C'mon Visto...give me something I can actually use.

Top_Banana

CB you guys rock, and Visto has the best themes so whoever came up with this I wanna say thanks a lot!!!!!!! So I will,
THANKS A LOT!!!!!!!!!

piranhadonna

This is my first time leaving a comment i am new to the blackberry by a couple of months now. I love my bb. I just wanted to say thank you for all of the cool stuff on crackberry. I just downloaded the h2o theme. Thanks a bunch.

darksroker

Thanks for the giveaways ! Visto Themes are really nice !

RedSoxFreak67

I really appreciate the freebie!!!

RedSoxFreak67

I really appreciate the freebie!!!

susanc67

sorry, my pc isn't as functional as I'd like today, if only it were a bb.

susanc67

Thank you so much Corey and Crackberry! I love this H20 theme, the icon version stood out so I downloaded that one. Visto is neat, the theme hasn't slowed my phone down yet, and the Glass and Ice were the most appealing ones that caught my eye when browsing through premium themes. Thank you again!

cuammo

When are we going to get some theme love for the Storm?

StoneCld61

Thank you so much, this theme is really cool!

LifeOfVice

Thank you very much! I am obsessed with improving my blackberry and your themes truly help out my addiction!

username0001

Always looking for a nice, clean theme.

cablelayer

Hopefully when the Storm themes come out, we can have the same offer.

engela1

I would love to have the "9000 Series" Today theme for my 8330 Curve. I love the way the 8900 looks, and this is just one step closer to finally owning one. :)

Directional

Thanks for the free stuff !!

Mike13USN

Thanks for the freebie. Stand-up Job

sheldonbk

Thanks for the free theme!
I like the nice clean header and the icon set. It does seem, however, that it was designed for OS 4.2 and not 4.5. The header on the application page shows as the Dimension header and not as the H2O theme.

borockster

Awesome give away/contest combo!

bemus

Many Many Many thanks Corey!!!!!!!

mettleh3d

thanks. any bold themes?

nikiaabner

Thanks corey for the awesome gift....I love your themes!!!

bls8195

rockroadie

uscguy

Awesome looking themes, I like how the icons stand out a lot more than on some other themes. Thanks!

weezygeezy

Thanks Corey! I love this site for a reason!

brew1086

Cool, Its always nice to get something for free. I love the Visto themes. Thanks Corey for all the work you do... Oh and the Freebie...

nvwd

Thank you for the free themes. Since my wife is the only BB owner as of yet, she will really enjoy them.

I will be a BB owner/adict as soon as T-Mo releases the 8900

vette13

thanks for the free theme

Rob FDIinc

Always loved a company that likes to give back to the crack heads.

otj287

Anyone have an idea why my 8330 (latest OS w/ Verizon) won't see the theme? I tried loading it with the BB Manager, but it won't see the .jad file (I browse to it). Also selected all files, but tells me that there are no supported files.

I have installed themes before, so don't know why this one isn't been seen. Usually they were .alx files though, not .jad...

Thx!

joygasm310

I didnt see the Bold listed as supported for the free theme. Does this mean no Bold love? Its cool, ill win one for my Bold in the contest. Thanks guys!

Jheri

Thanks a ton for the free theme! And I'll push the Ice blue theme as well. It's a beauty. http://www.vistothemes.com/iceblue.php

Scott403540

Thanks Corey - Visto Themes rock!

DaddyNautilus

Hey all. Thanks to Visto Themes and Crackberry. All have a great New Year.

bberrynewbie84

Which one i download for my blackberry Curve 8330.

cexshun

Visto has some nice themes. A little cartoonish, but one of the few theme makers that can somewhat compare to bbplay.

GhostWolf

Just downloaded it, looks great in my 8330! Thank You

GotThaTech3188

A free theme is awesome, and much appreciated!

bberrynewbie84

Which one i download for my blackberry Curve 8330.

Tallon

Thanks Corey but how bout some love for the STORM users... I know I would like to try out a new theme for free...!!!

kp9322

Gee, Thanks a million for the free theme! I hope it works on my 8350i, I love my Crackberry and you guys definately make it better!!!

tritan1

I am wondering if these themes will work with the 8350 and os 4.6.1.83 ?

bberrynewbie84

I can't get mines to work for my 8330,Can u someone help me? FYI I'm using the desktop manager.

globydude

I love visto's themes. All of them look so cool, especially Glass X and OSX. If you pick me, I will invite the creators of those two themes and the crackberry staff out for some Starbucks or Pete's Coffee. Also, everyone who reads this post, I encourage you to buy the themes from visto. I've seen a lot of themes and their themes look the smartest, coolest, and the smoothest.

tritan

I can't find any themes for 4.6.1.83 on my 8350I

crackvegas78

Thanks for the free theme. Always love a contest.

maxum_101

If the first thing you see is yet another boring and uninspired Apple or Microsoft theme, you'll know not to look for anything original.

What do I win? :D

fonixmunkee

Thanks for your free theme...the old Verizon theme was getting so plain and boring. Now it almost looks like I have a new BB...maybe I don't need a Storm now...

...MAYBE...

Thanks for the theme!

flop

I'm sorry, that was a mean of me. I'm very thankful for your good nature :)

Visto Themes, give aways and Contests OH MY! Never thought id say this but, its like Christmas has spilled over into January. :D

ilabelu

H2O is swimmingly beautiful. crisp clear interactive icons and neat abstract background. for giggles, i have a picture of a painting i did of The Rainbow Fish and set it as the background. This will be temporary, but thought it appropriate to go with the water theme.

abumuad

Thanks Corey, love it. Looks great on my pearl.

Tomguruken36#CB

I kind of need a mew theme

jtwarrin5

Thanks for the free visto theme! I'll make sure to check your others as well. How do you back-up the theme on with the Blackberry Desktop manager.

carleone2gz

Can't get enough of the giveaways.... keep'em coming...

wild style

visto themes for life!

crackcooper

What maybe 1 in 1,000,000. Have to try.

trentoncampbell

I like the Grayonic Theme the best and the blue ice is not to bad. I like to have just one row of icons at the bottom. That way you can see the background and still have a few icons too.

SteveO86

Nothing a like a good premium theme to give your BlackBerry a fresh new look!

parkerd1

I love Visto Themes. They do an awesome job.

zackymcharvest

cool, another theme to try

osto242

I have not been a crackberry user long. I have in the past few weeks come to love this little peace of heaven. Never knew there was so much to do with it. And thanks to all that help and give stuff away. Once again thanks

BruinBerry

pick me. no free bold themes is harsh!

harendza

awesome themes they look great on my blackberry

rhmclay

Corey, Just wanted to give you a big thanks for the free gift, and the possibility of winning a great theme.

salt

I'm new to all of this. Just got a blackberry. Love this site. It has helped one get to know my blackberry. The Visto themes look pretty cool but none available for the blackberry storm 9530. Couldn't get the freebie this time. Hopefully you guys will offer something for the storm in the future.

mythai

I love the theme but the profile icon is missing. When I scroll onto it there is just a blank box (you only see the background). I can only tell it's meant to be the profiles icon because the text underneath.

Any thoughts on how I can fix that?

Thanks again!

dncrwyn#CB

Thank you for the contest. I'd really like to try this out on my new storm

GregMargie

Very Generous of you to do this for everyone! Thank you!!!

JSho101

The Visto themes are awesome! I actually just purchased one last week (Ice Blue) and I absolutely love it. I also just d/l my free copy of H2O and of course I'm impressed. Keep up the good work! And thanks for the free theme!

Killired

i'm new so i'll play.. but i have the storm.. do you make themes for them??? do you have any free ones for the storm???

fyrfyter

Thanks for the free theme. That's totally awesome! Love your themes!

iluvmyhorse

I love this H20 theme and now I would love to have the green theme and droid theme. They look awesome. My husband never wanted to change the theme on his pearl till he saw this one and he is using it now. Thanks for helping my husband become a blackberry addict just like me. I have the curve. Thanks again and keep those themes coming I luv looking for new ones.

Disturbed_Angel

This is why I love CB, giveaways you actually wan't to win.

jake1s

Thanks Corey for the FREE theme!!!! Great work!

coreyvisto

Hey everybody! Thanks for all the kind comments!

To answer a few questions:

1. I currently do not have any themes made for the Storm as there is not a Theme Builder out that supports themes to be made for the Storm.

2. The profile icons are invisible because the current builder that was out when I created H2O did not support hiding it, so I had to find a workaround which was to make them all transparent images. I did this to keep the banner clean and simple. (if not, you would have a huge profile icon sitting there blocking things.)

3. I would love to port most of my themes over to the Bold series, but unfortunately the new awesome high-res screen makes the icons for H2O and most of my other themes look very small. I would make them larger, but resizing them that way just makes them blurry.

Corey

murphdsurf

Any themes for the Bold ?

brlintn

Can't beat the price!

I would also like to say thank you to ALL the companies that make these contests and give-aways possible.

(just putting it out there)

jimmyd1050

Thanks for offering the Giveaway Corey - however, when can we expect some themes for the Storm? Hmmmm?

Vaffanculo403

MrEL337

I just joined the site, pretty cool that you guys are up for these sorts of things. :)

BBBM

i've seen a bunch of screenshots posted with these VISTO themes, and ive always wondered where people got them... i love it...

tech42er

Contests are great (and I hope to win this one so I can get my hands on Trans Green) but giveaways are even better and while every theme maker worth their salt holds contests on CB, it takes someone who really cares about the community to offer a theme for free for any device, for anybody, just because they're linking from CB. Thanks again, Corey!

nydog

Appreciate the free themes Corey. Thanks.

suself
