Free BoldBerry Theme for 8100 & 8300 Blackberry

MonkeyBizIU, a frequent poster at, has created a cool looking theme called ‘BoldBerry’ for the 81xx and 83xx Blackberry devices. The theme uses the Blue futuristic background and icons we’ve seen on some of the earlier Blackberry Bold images floating around on the net. I must say, this is probably one of the best versions of this theme that I have seen as the blue ‘Bold’ background is extremely sharp and vivid on my Blackberry, as well as the icons too (the images posted here may not do them justice). This theme is so nice in fact, that I plan on keeping it :0)

MonkeyBizIU does say this about the theme…“that there is a slight issue with Opera Mini. For whatever reason, it doesn’t play nice with transparent menus. When you try to open the menu, it will flash briefly and disappear. it’s still there, just hiding. If it’s a big issue, I may turn off the transparent menus and go for something solid. Input would be appreciated.”

That aside, this is a gorgeous theme. Great work MonkeyBiz!

Both 81xx & 83xx themes are available in Zen, Icon and Today Screen versions.

Desktop Zip and OTA downloads are available via Pinstack:

  1. By far the best FREE Bold theme i’ve used…I’ll actually keep this one and use it

  2. Vicky –

    Actually, I corrected the problem with Opera Mini. For whatever reason, when you use a semi-transparent background on the menus, it goes all wonky and doesn’t show up right. I corrected it in a later release but never went back and edited the post. Just thought I’d let you know.

    Thank you for the wonderful review! It’s good to know that my work is appreciated!


  3. Sorry about that Adam, but good that you put it in the comments section here. It’s a fantastic theme, really the best I’ve seen of the Blue Bold…I’m using it on my BB now!

  4. Hey MonkeyBiz, only issue I have are

    1 – in the “Profiles – Advanced” menu, i noticed that the bottom of the fonts get cutoff. Still useable, just a lil annoying

    2 – Could enable the enlarging of fonts? I like my fonts a lil bigger than the default one that you have there.

  5. NICE!!!!!

  6. For some reason, when I select Manage Connections, the fonts appear with Blue and Red colors and not completely White. Please check it out. This theme is awesome though. THANKS.

  7. For some reason, the menus in Facebook and other applications shows up white on white, and is impossible to read… This would be great with different menus!

  8. Hey Monkeybiz,

    i think the theme is awesome…

    I had a problem with my phone(unrelated) and am now trying to re-download the link but i am getting a server error. Is the theme still available for download?
