Themes “The Return of the look”

There is one thing that makes WM a great OS: if you don’t like something, you can change it. That ability sets WM apart from other major OS’s because it is the only one that allows you to change your UI, dialer, calculator, keyboard, menu, startup, main apps theme’s and even the whole OS with one flash of a new ROM. These things might seem minor, but very useful especially when it comes to Windows Media Player and your phone dialer. They are members of our great community that know the strengths of the OS and play with it, and that is what this is all about.


There are a lot of good places to get a good dialer for your phone. HTC makes one of the best looking, most functional dialers out there and if you want your phone to have it, it is just a cabinet(CAB) file away. The are four main dialer that take the cake for this section, Tachi/At&t dialer(Vga), Rhodium dialer(Wvga), Minimal Dialer(Qvga)  and Wqvga, but sadly I can not find a good version to go with.

Media Player

The windows mobile media player is from my point of view one of the worse things about the OS’s look. The skin is as old as time it’s self, and that is a well known fact in the windows mobile community. The people at xda and mylostblog have made some dialer skins to save the day. Their is one that looks the best and it is the windows media player12 skin for (Wvga, Vga, Wqvga) their is no version for Qvga, so sorry people, but there are more skins to go around. Their is a Manila 3D theme for (Vga, Qvga) so you qvga guys, we still have love for you.

The Final-Start up-

This is one of the less important Theme/skin, but some people care about it, so I included it. The are a lot of different versions, so it is all about what you like, but these are some that I choose and or have on my phone. EMSE’s startup screen for (Wvga, Vga, Wqvga, Qvga), is a pretty good start up screen and it all depends on taste to get one, because there is a version for everyone except square resolution. Their are many more start up screen at either XDA, PPCgeek or over at Mylostblog

The theme of your phone is something that is somewhat important, but with changes and WM7 coming, theme’s might become extinct for us and I would be glad if that happened.
