Free Reverie Theme for BlackBerry Bold & Curve 8900

Cruising the forums for some good themes, I came across this one for the Bold and Curve 8900. Reverie is about as simple as it gets. This full screen theme shows no icons on the homescreen, allowing you to fully show off your wallpaper. There is a small banner along the bottom with meters and notifiers as well as a Quicklaunch button. This is as clean as a theme can get, and I love the look of...

The graphics are just what they used to be (which is nothing great) and the game runs smooth on my Tour. You can play in either...

I'll admit this one made me laugh when I saw it, and I didn't quite believe it. I had kind of a "what will they think of next" reaction, but after looking into it a bit, it does seem promising. The premise of JAJAH @Call is simple - you just need to sign up for their service (the person you're calling needs to be signed up as well) and then send a tweet to call them. So if I wanted to call...
