    you need to root your phone before you can install themes

    Most of the themes you are seeing here are for rooted phones. If you are wanting themes for a non-rooted phone, first thing you need to do is go to your market and search for and download a home replacement app. Then from there search for themes that work with the home replacement app that you downloaded and download those and install. There are some very nice themes available on the market. Some of the home replacements are Open Home, GDE, dx Top (?? I think). But look around in the market.

    If you are wanting to root, read the links in my signature. One is a guide to terminology that is good for you to know before you start. The other one is a step-by-step guide to rooting.
