If you are new to the BlackBerry platform especially if you don’t know what a Vendor ID is you should probably ignore this article.
I was removing some of the other vendor themes that I do not use from my BlackBerry and decided to help out the people after me. I could not find a good reference list of the Vendor ID numbers and which Wireless Carrier they translated into so I created one myself. I managed to compile a simple enough list that should do but let me know if I missed anything.
Removing these extra vendor themes that I do not use freed up over 4 MB of memory. Pretty cool stuff. Especially the AT&T theme which is about 700Kb.
100 – T-mobile USA ~250K
102 – AT&T Wireless ~700K
104 – Sprint ~20K
105 – Verizon ~600K
107 – Rogers ~300K
109 – Bell ~100K
114 – T-Mobile United Kingdom ~250K
115 – TIM Wireless ~700K
119 – Orange ~650K
120 – Vodafone ~600K (There are two of these on newer devices)
125 – O2 ~350K
129 – Telefonica ~25K
You can remove these themes using the JLGUI utility we mentioned in the past for removing PTT and Voice Dialing. The COD files are more or less called net_rim_theme_VENDORID_SCREENSIZE_b. You can find out the exact name to remove by going to status>advanced options>applications>menu button>modules and scrolling down until you see net_rim_theme.
!!!BEWARE!!! do this at your own peril! I have also seen some problems when users remove the Dimension theme so don’t remove any theme that does not have a vendorID.
