Found out about themes didn't you? You should check out Crackberry.com in their forums for lots of FREE and paid themes. Personalize your phone.
Guess I'm confussed....what exactly is your question??
I had written out a long message, mostly complaints about the new OS update, and how I didn;t like a large majority of the changes. One of the rants was about the number of icons/buttons on the bottom of the screen while in portrait mode. I had tried changing them by going into Options, but the setting there didn't affect the Portrait Home page in the fashion I would've expected.
Anyway, long story short, after typing the message, and trying different things, I eventually did find the answer, so wanted to delete the message I had typed. And since you can't delete postings, I edited it to say NVM (nevermind).
And for the person who mentions Themes in their response, no, it has absolutely nothing to do with themes.
