    I'm loving my phone so far as most likely all of you are.

    However, I'm so stuck with black background, yellow tiles that any other colour theme doesn't just "feel" right!

    I know we had a thread before about saying how phone's colour might mean we won't find any suitable theme colour.

    What theme combinations do you have on your Yellow Lumia 920? May be a screenshot or two?

    Please help me realise colour combinations that go really well with yellow! - This is my first phone that isn't black.

    Yellow is definitely a gorgeous device! It's made me fall in love with Yellow, but then it's a bad thing when I feel like changing the colours. I have used yellow for a month and can't seem to think of changing it. My cousin who has a white one changes it nearly every day and keeps pestering me to change too :s

    I think for me it is yellow then white then cyan then red or black. Yellow is just unbelievably gorgeous.

    Hah, this is why I went with White--it being "neutral" allows more color choice via the Accent colors. Of course, that also results in a bit of unease with a need of having to change the look more often--with Yellow, you are seemingly less likely to want to change just due to the fact other colors don't really match.

    Emerald is the best color theme to go with the yellow phone. Black background. I don't have yellow, nor a lumia YET...but from playing with it, green is best. Cyan looks alright; a little too feminine to me. Dark blue. Steel looks pretty solid with it too. That's all I got lol

    I've tried cobalt and now steel. Thinking of going back to yellow though. I love the colored tiles but not the colored text in apps such as WPCentral.

    I use the lime accent on a black background. The 'neon'-like shade of both the yellow phone and lime accent seem to work well with me visually. The yellow accent drives me mad because it just doesn't match the shade of the phone. Darn my graphic designer mentality.

    I have mine with Orange on dark and I think it looks really good as a contrast against the yellow. Keep trying other colours but always go back to orange. Here's a screenshot.

    Wow! One thing is pretty clear that those who have opted to go with Yellow clearly love those "stand out colours" - I mean esp, magenta, purple, orange and crimson - they are so bold! It's like you can't ignore the phone with screen off or screen on ;)

    I've tried to have "light" and "steel" - it looks ok but one thing I've noticed is when you have new text/email the bold fonts don't always stand out on white and on dark they are too dark to easily read. Anyone having that with these colours?

    Only colour that matches easily has been cyan and yellow so far.. But keep these combinations coming though, it does sound like you guys have tried quite a few already :P
