Connect the phone to a computer in mass storage mode. If you're using Windows, make sure that hidden and system files are displayed.

Navigate to the drive that's mounted when you connect the phone and go to the private\10207114\import folder.

In there you will see a folder for each theme that's installed in your mass memory. In each folder there will be a .skn file. Open that file with a text editor and scan for the name of the theme that will appear in there.

Once you've located the theme(s) you want to delete, simply delete the folder under "import" containing the .skn, .mif and .mbm files.

How can I uninstall themes that are on the phone memory? When I connect my phone to my computer using mass memory, the phone memory drive does not appear, thus making it difficult to uninstall themes.

It's strange. The themes installed on my phone memory do not show up anywhere in application manager nor in any folder when searching with X-plore.

I had a big problem with a Babi Black theme. After 2 hard resets, and reinstallations of everything, I found it was the theme. FFS, it shouldn't be so hard to remove faulty software from a phone.

Why doesn't the application manager display this sort of stuff? It took hours to find your most welcome and appreciated solution.

Cheers.

Thanks that solved the problem for me, the only thing I would add is to use a hex editor such as XVI32 - http://www.chmaas.handshake.de/delphi/freeware/xvi32/xvi32.htm as in Notepad the skn files can be unreadable or use a program like mbm_whizard to view the images in the MBM file to determine which theme it is. In my case all the folders in the directory contained themes that weren't showing up so it may be possibe to wipe the lot (on mass storage).
