Do the Big BlackBerry Cool Survey, get free theme

106 Comments

Excellent, dudeHey folks, we’ve got a survey up for anyone who wants a snazzy free icon theme. The survey should take 10-15 minutes to complete, and asks a few basic demographic questions, a few questions about your BlackBerry and how you use it, and finally your thoughts on BlackBerry Cool. We’re hoping to cover all of the bases with this survey, and share the information with some of the big players in the BlackBerry world so they can better tailor their products to you. It’ll also help us here at BBCool to provide better coverage for the topics you care about. At the end of the survey, you’ll be given a link to download a new theme with an icy blue design.

NOTE: The downloads are in a RAR format, which is a compression method like ZIP. You need to nab a program like WinRAR to open them. We’ll try to get a ZIP version up soon, since it’s a little more well-known. Our themes page gives a quick run-down on how to install themes once you’ve downloaded them.


This theme is available for 8100, 8300, and 8800-series devices. The downloads are in a RAR format, which is a compression method like ZIP. You need to nab a program like WinRAR to open them.

    How do you download the theme if you took the survey on a desktop. Can the theme be e-mailed to me.

    I filled out the survey and the Submit button disappeared! Refresh the page and all my answers were gone and the Submit button never came back. I’m using Flock if that helps.

    I also downloaded the theme but it is a .rar file. Don’t know how to install it. Typically I install themes OTA. What are we supposed to do with this file?

    I got mine w/o a prob. 8-10 min for the survey then got links for the homepage AND for the 88** series theme. I’d setup a link to mine but that’s kind of against the law.

    :P

    Sent a note through the contact us section indicating I also completed the survey but was unable to download a theme for my 8700c. Since I filled in my email address on the survey and subscribed to the newsletter, I trust you can send me a “code” to download through the store.

    Thanks,

    all the whining my theme my theme, it works and i did it before and after… maybe some of you forgot to fill out your model? i did the survey again and skipped this part(blackberry model) and i got the same effect many of you are complaining about…nothing. Fix your faces and re-do the survey, stop rushing for the end result.

    i however have a good complaint.

    when you make a folder anything you put is it is not visible, when you hit the menu button its only shows the “call voicemail” option, any help in this area is appreciated.

    I have an 8703e and took the survey and was then told that my model is not supported, time to upgrade. The page stated that 8700 series was supported.
