One of the most common mobile device features is to be able to dress it up to your liking. In this regard, themes come into play and make everything fit to your desires. For mobile consumers whose phones is of the Symbian S60 3rd edition OS, it is imperative to know some tips on how to tweak your device.

This time, deleting mobile themes on an S60 3rd edition phone can’t be any easier. While deleting themes on these devices can be as easy as going to the Application Manager options under the Installation menu, once you cannot find the installed themes under the App. Manager List, deleting themes would then have to be done manually on the phone’s memory card provided it is where the themes are installed.

Here’s a quick step on how to delete themes on your Symbian S60 3rd edition phone. Contrary to what other tutorials online say, I was able to delete the entire themes on my Nokia E71 simply by doing these steps:

1. Connect your mobile device to your PC in mass storage or by inserting the mini SD card reader.
2. Go to your phone’s root memory, find the Private Folder and make sure that you show Hidden folders in your PC.
3. Find the folder named 10207114. Contrary to other tutorials that you could find online, even if you’ll only delete a particular .skn file (which you could determine the theme by opening it using your Notepad), what will happen is that all themes installed on the phone will be deleted. That’s what happened on my end. Thus, it is advisable that you take note of the themes’ name that you’d want to retain before deleting anything.

I hope this quick tip helps. Stay tuned by subscribing to us via email or RSS for similar topics.

    Hello. I’ve deleted that specific folder and the themes are all still there on the phone’s memory. It’s an E71.

    @Nuno,
    Which folder are you referring to? Themes can be deleted either on the Application Manager or from the memory card.
