Review: The Coach Theme v1.0 For BlackBerry by Basic Visuals

February 1, 2010 | By | 3 Comments

When I saw this theme, I swore I heard Madonna’s “Vogue” playing in the background. This theme is clean. and perfect for the woman who loves her Coach brand. Great colors and icons, it emulates a Coach bag for sure, from the exterior to the interior.

Basic Visuals is all about the theme with style yet avoiding the effects that wear on the battery and memory. It stands for themes that are dressy yet down to earth too. And Coach is a perfect example. The Coach theme is available in the BlackBerry Sync Store for $2.99, which is a steal for Coach ( compared to $299!).

The description of Coach is as follows:

If you love Coach, this one is for you!

This classy theme with unique elements on each screen will dress your BlackBerry with style. Complete with weather slot and hidden today, you won’t miss a beat and look fabulous doing it!

PLEASE BE SURE YOU CHOOSE THE CORRECT VERSION FOR YOUR DEVICE AND OS. Versions available for OS 4.6, 4.7, and 5.0, and multiple devices.
Call screens will appear slightly different than pictured for OS 4.6 and 4.7.

The features of Coach are:

  • Hidden today for your messages and calendar
  • A different wallpaper for each screen
  • Stylish, easy to read font
  • Dark blue icons with Coach focus
  • Blue jewel message indicator
  • Weather slot (85xx has a no weather slot version)
  • Versions available for OS 4.6, 4.7, and 5.0, and multiple devices.

I downloaded and installed Coach on my BlackBerry Tour 9630, OS 5.0.0.419. I did the battery pull and activated the theme and my phone was dressed as easily and beautifully.

I’ll begin with the front screen. The front screen has a picture of a Coach bag with the tag displaying. On the top sits a smoky transparent bar where, left to right the time, alarm, GPS, and battery life indicator and coverage indicator are displayed. On the bottom of the smoky bar on the far right sits the weather slot for your weather app. On the bottom sits six customizable icons for your most used apps.  For mine I always place my messages, email, BBM, texts, and downloads if I can. The cursor is really a very classy touch, it highlights your icon with a white background and the C design of Coach in yellow, pink, green, and blue across the white square. The text of highlighted icons shows in blue.

Clicking the icon I have all my folders showing. The icons are nice and go along with the BlackBerry and Coach. The background is the Coach material of beige and dark brown. Going into messages, texts, and options you can see the color is white, and the outline is the dark brown color, changing the text from black to white. Clicking the options button brings up the menu of brown with light blue text, and the highlight is light blue changing the text to brown.

When you receive a call or make a call, the background shows the Coach Metal with a zipper on the Coach material. Nice, classic and elegant.

PROS: The weather slot is nice, the theme flows nicely with icons being easy to find and relate to. It doesn’t have too much, no distractions. It also is an eye catcher for your friends.

CONS: I couldn’t find a flaw with this theme, except that perhaps it’s not a theme that’s for both men and women, but tell you what guys…it’s a great gift for your girlfriend or wife who’ve been asking for Coach for Valentines!

All in all, the theme runs great on a BlackBerry, dresses it up, and makes your BlackBerry a very classy accessory.

You can grab your Coach for $2.99 from the BlackBerry Sync Store
