BlackBerry Screen

We want to know what your BlackBerry home screen looks like!

If you've been around the CrackBerry forums for a while, you've most likely seen our *huge* What does your BlackBerry screen look like thread. Retired forums mod naviwilliams started the thread wayyy back in 2007 and it's been going strong ever since. It's now filled with pages upon pages of BlackBerry screens - everything from plain old stock to crazy themed out creations.

The great thing about BlackBerry is the ability to customize nearly everything to fit your needs, and that all starts with the home screen. I personally like to use the stock theme and just change up the wallpaper every few days (or every Wednesday!), but I know tons of you prefer to use a custom theme to give your device that special look. So if you haven't yet seen the What does your BlackBerry screen look like thread I encourage you to check it out and post your own home screen (grab Capture It if you need something for screenshots). It's a great resource for new ideas on how to arrange your own device, and also a bit of a trip down memory lane if you check out the older (and I do mean older) screens from years back. Let's see those screens!!

What does your BlackBerry screen look like?


I like the Blackberry Playbook's home screen. so basically what I am looking for is, 1) ability to group most used apps i.e dock, etc. (like in pbook). 2) calendar should be an always running app, may be like a widget showing important events etc.

-other than that I prefer black or grey menu which is more attractive and also it does not consume lots of battery. white menus eats up the battery a lot.

On the 9900 you can create a folder by hitting the BB button,then selecting "add folder" you can then name and select a homescreen icon. Then you can move what apps you want into that folder. I do this quite a bit since I like to keep a neat homescreen

Unfortunately, not the way I want it since we still do not have a theme studio for OS7. My old blackberry had a today theme with agenda, unified messages, and 5 icons... Please someone make a today theme for 99xx!

I use the Seven_Point_Five theme by BBthemes. It's a nice little Playbook style theme. I usually keep my wallpaper black. Want some great themes? Go to mybbota.com and check out some of the best themes around. Some are free, others are $2.99 tops.

on my torch i have a pic of my nephew and lal my email and social stuff and of course bbm, and a shortcut to crackberry. on my playbook i have a pic of nova scotia from when i went there on vacation i have my scrap book and all my pictures and cooking stuff and the cb app. i have so many writing and note apps i do a lot of writing and they are all great i just need a keyboard case so i can really get goo d use out of it might get obne for my bday, on june 29 lol

A Canadian Flag blowing in the breeze with Happy Canada Day, with the stock BB Theme. I would have attached a screenshot, but I couldn't get my machine to cooperate with that thought.

How awesome you posted this to the homepage! I just changed back to BB (9900 <3, always wanted to try this even before it was official) and could not for the life of me remember the title to the show off thread and somehow my searches went right past it.
I love seeing what people do to customize their devices, I always get the best ideas of themes/colors/set up from everyone :)

Stock 9900 theme currently with a great old B&W Kodak Brownie shot of a CP locomotive/passenger train (I change wp photo as the mood strikes, always one of my own photos), 2 icon rows with my multiple mail icons (I don't like everything in one 'Messages' folder), Contacts, a BBM/IM in a folder, Calendar, Browser, & (Accu)Weather.

I added a new Theme that made the icons look cool, As for the wallpaper I have some really off the hook flames that look like they belong on a Harley
