    Are all those with the cyan Nokia devices using any other color besides the three blues (Nokia blue, blue, teal)?

    Nope. I find it clashes too much with the color of my phone.

    That's the reason I didn't get cyan. I think it limits the tile color variety. The blue and red themes look best with it. I would think mango isn't a bad pair-up either. Girls have more options with the cyan, as it matches the pink and magenta themes.

    I use Mango. I find that the blues look too blended/bland.

    that was my worry until I actually got it...Looks fine to me.. The blue bezels are thin enough not to be too intrusive

    Seems to me, the regular blue goes better than the Nokia blue on the cyan 900.

    What ever happened to the Nokia 'Black' that they were talking about initially when there were rumors about a Nokia Windows Phone. I would think a Grey or Black on a light background would look good on any colored NL device.

    I use Magenta. It actually compliments it perfectly :-) That or Mango or even Purple, but Magenta seems to be my main color now. I was using Red or Teal when I was on a Samsung Focus.

    I'm using Teal on my black lumia 900. It looks pretty good.

    That's what I should have done... Bought the Cyan and used the Black Skin (that I actually still bought for my Black 900).

    I use Green and Purple my 2 fav themes. I have some nice lock screens to go with those colors. I really don't get the "Cyan doesn't go with non blue themes thing" The entire screen is covered with a black frame. The only time the Cyan is really pronounced is when you flip the device over.

    i agree where are the black tiles that we were suppose to have access to. i wonder if that will come only with the white lumia 900 at CES that was the phone they had the black tiles on.

    Presently being lusted after as I'm stuck with Verizon. Might go for one off contract and rock two phones for a few months as I watch how Apollo plays out for vzw.

    Bought more Nok shares on Thursday...I'm a believer!

    i've been using magenta lately, i like the contrast in color.

    blue should go well with all the current theme colors, as blue (and cyan to a slightly lesser degree) is a fairly neutral color that goes with most others, like a pair of jeans.

    As long as you mix up your tiles enough then the theme shouldn't dominate your start screen too much. I agree though it's hard to not clash with the cyan color.
