Hey Nate. Great theme as usual. Any chance on seeing it in yellow?
REQUEST - Add the red (star symbol) for new message
First of all, I want to THANK YOU for creating such an AWESOME theme! I was searching for a few days for a theme for my new 9700 before finding yours and its just awesome! Well done, well done!
The only thing I see as an issue for me is the message notification symbol you are currently using, its really difficult to see because its the same color as everything else, it has no contrast.
Those stock red "*" symbols really do the trick when a new message pops up and draws your eye right too it.
As a suggestion, maybe the blackberry symbol you currently use can be made red in color or just use the stock red "*" so when you do get a new message for someone like me who has 5 email accounts your eye goes right to it. It makes it a lot easier to see which account just got the new message.
WISH LIST NOTE: maybe this is already possible, and I just haven't figured it out yet but can you change some of the current icons to a different ones? If not, this would also be an amazing option to have.
Thank you again for all of your hard work!
After using this theme for a few weeks, another thing I have noticed as a problem is the two tone message bar highlighter for mail and sms (grey top, black bottom). I use the black theme v5.1. I constantly get confused as to which message i'm actually on because the the black highlights the message subject (bottom part of message) which stands out more in contrast to the top part which is grey. If you could make this just ONE color it would be less confusing.
Several Apps (icons) that are installed aren't showing up after I changed to this theme. Its strange because when I go to re-install an App, it asks me if I want to overwrite it, so its still installed just not showing up anywhere. But when I look for the Icon or Search for the App, nothing. I am not hiding Icons either. They just aren't showing up. Specificially my IM Apps in the IM folder aren't showing up. Only the BB IM is listed.
The BB browser when launched from the either Home screen or expanded screen causes an error "Uncaught exception: java.lang.illegalArgumentException" Although when I launch the browser from EDL's google browser launcher, it works just fine. A battery pull is needed in order to clear it.
Hope this helps for future revisions.

Reason: Update after using theme
thanks for uploader. ilike it..
Hi Nate, I'm new to Blackberry and am playing with/discovering my Bold 9700. Your theme really sounds like the only one I need, so I downloaded Purple BBPROv5.1 OTA and it installed fine and the phone rebooted, but it doesn't show up in options>themes even after removing and replacing the battery (I did google for a while and found this tip). Only the original theme that came with the phone is shown (RIM's Precision Zen, which is currently active).
All the permissions on your theme are set to 'allow'.
I guess with the 9700 I don't need a theme reader?
Any ideas, because I hate to ask for help but I'm stumped now?
Are you going to that link on your phone? You cant install it from a computer.

Is it possible to refresh de content of the unseen mail while this icon is active?
It would be nice if this feature is also working for sms en phonecall log.
Hope to download the new version soon!
Thanks for making my BB live nicer.
