These two components can be effective together or solo. Depending on the amount of personal or professional style an individual wants. Wallpaper is merely an image displayed on your BlackBerry home screen. It’s usually formed to the exact measurements of your BB device’s window. Themes are a little different. They focus on a specific motif altering the appearance of icons, rollover response, special effects, and backdrops. Any BlackBerry Curve wallpaper can be changed without switching the existing theme. This enables users to modify the look of their home screen while keeping the original or particular theme set to their mobile phone. Whether it’s a business logo, funky patterns, or favorite photo -- showcase what you’re passionate about with BB.
