Wish you could change the user interface on your BlackBerry to look like the chic
iPhones? Thanks to technabob, we just learned that there's a new download called the bPhone that will do just this. The theme is compatible with the 8700, Pearl, Curve and 8800. Important: Before you go on a downloading frenzy, you MUST have BlackBerry OS 4.2.1 or later installed or else you may render your BlackBerry unusable! To check what OS you have, go to Options -> About on your phone. Get the bPhone download by clicking here!Do you know a great shortcut or tip you think geeksugar readers should know?

interesting idea, but why bother? I love the way my BB looks as is! If I wanted the iphone, which I don't, I'd go out and buy one...can't handle the poor reception on AT&T's network.

wish i had read this before i dl'd the bphone on my pearl! i dl'd it without having the lastest OS on my pearl & it messed up all of my media. so if you're going to dl it, please make sure you've got the latest OS!! i love this theme. cant afford an iphone & honestly i love my pearl too much to give it up.. but i do like the iphone theme. & ps - starofsorrow, go to you'll find links to the lastest versions.

Ooohs! Is it at all possible to upgrade your blackberry OS? Mine's a 4.1, but it's an 8700, so if I could just upgrade it, I'd like the layout of that!
