Installing an AT&T theme on Blackberry Pearl 8100
Hi folks -
relative newbie here. My wife has AT&T wireless (phone) service. We received a "second-hand" BB Pearl 8100. The phone came directly from RIM, but was designed for T-mobile. It was never locked for T-mobile, however. In short, the phone works just fine with my wife's Cingular/AT&T SIM card.
Originally, I wasn't sure if the phone would work, or work properly, if it did not have an AT&T OS loaded, so I did download and load the AT&T OS for a BB Pearl 8100.
However - I have [at least!] 2 questions:
1) I'm still getting a "T-mobile" boot screen. I wonder if this is somehow burned into some type of ROM of the BB itself? However - as I said, the phone is working so really this question is more of a curiosity at this point. My REAL question is:
2) I don't have the AT&T Theme loaded. After loading the AT&T OS, the phone still has the T-mobile theme, plus the "Dimension" theme(s), and also the "Phantom" and "Sunday Funnies" themes (the latter 2 I think may have come along with the AT&T OS (?).
I would have thought the AT&T theme would be embedded into the AT&T OS load - but apparently not.
What am I missing? How can I install the AT&T THEME on this Pearl???
Thanks so much!
