Apr 11, 2010
Can someone please explaine to me how i can update my storm 9530?does my phone lock if i update to last version of software (please be sure when you answer me on this question) ?
how do i know does my storm now running on leaked or official software? because i think that my full qwerty looks little bit different than others?And last questions is those it metter on which software (leaked or official) is my storm unlocked? (because if he is unlocked on leaked version does he lock if i update to official version?)
Ok, can someone please help me get started...I am new to this unlocked blackberry storm (9530) thing...I have unlocked my phone already...and I want to make sure that I have everything before I start downloading apps or browsing the web on my phone. I am on T-mobiles Even More Plus plan, with unlimited data usage. If there are any thoughts, websites or forum post suggestions that you guys have in mind for me to get started on how to get the browser, emails, apps, etc going on my phone
I recently bought a verizon bb storm 9530, bought the code to unlocked and be able to use it with Tmobile, but I accidentally enter the wrong code 10 time and now I can not unlock to use it with tmobile at all.... is it true that the phone can not be unlock with any provider anymore since I locked it, it can be use with verizon, but that is not the provider.
I recently bought an unlock code for my Verizon branded Storm 9530 and am a bit confused as to what networks I can actually use it on. From what I understand I can now use the phone on any CDMA or GSM network. except for Sprint (because they won't activate unlocked Storms)?
I downloaded crack utility and desktop manager 4.6 , 4.7, etc. nothing works. My computer will not recognize my phone and it seams I have tried everything. My OS is 22.214.171.124 and its unlocked and now with TMobile. Desktop manager wont recognizing phone.
i have a unlocked blackberry storm for tmobile i can send and recieve texts and the internet works fine, however when i try to call it says no channel/circuit avaliable. i went to india for a few weeks and calling worked just fine there is there any way to fix this problem?
I'm having is when I go to send the service books to activate email I keep getting update failed I tried the diagnostic test and manually sending the books. I was wondering if I can replace the verizon email service books with att's books also if that is possible what books will I look for in crackutil any help is appreciated
I just unlocked my storm 9530 today for T-Mobile, and I'm having trouble unlocking all features. I really want to get the internet up & running on my storm. I downloaded Crackutil, and it when I open it, it says file access denied.
Hey guys i have a unlocked bb storm 9530. i am currently using it with tmobile but i cant seem to get the captal EDGE and all the apps that require data are not working such as facebook, ebay etc. is there any OS' that u guys are using that can fix this problem?
I bought an unlocked storm and everything was great for a few weeks. One day I cant make calls or texts or anything and under the manage connections icon it says im picking up verizon network instead of att.
My friend is over my house and he has a Storm 1. He's in from out of town. I was showing my Storm 2 to him and he was complaining how his Storm 1 is so slow. I asked him if he ever updated his software and he said no. I checked it on the device under "about" and it is the old software. Can we preform and over the air update to get him current?
I had a question about the 9500. Im currently using the 9530 from verizon and was thinking about selling it and getting a 9500 cuz i have t-mobile and im tired of the EDGE/edge problem.....I was just curious if any of you happen to know if the 9500 has the EDGE/edge problem that the 9530 has with T-Mobile.
yesterday i set my storm on the dock to my computer, started up dm. an update on my core applications 5.0 was available so i proceeded with the update. now all of those pushed icons for bing, my verizon, Internet, etc. keep popping up without a reboot! anyone else come across this?before the update i would remove these icons in my service books and they wouldn't pop up until after a reboot. since this latest update the icons pop up every half hour or so. very annoying to say in the least!
i apologize, i know this has been discussed already but this is getting so ridiculous! verizon keeps telling me "there's nothing they can do".is there a way to go back and "un-do" this update? i know we can't permanently delete these pushed icons, only hide them.
I have a storm running on tmobile. I found a fix to always get an EDGE and did it. it worked the first time and was fine for a few months but then it stopped working so I did it again. When I did my phone stopped having any data service. There are no entries in the host routing table..Ive reregistered my device a million times and its not working. Ive been on the phone with tmobile (they are no help) I read all the post about this but nothing has fixed it.
Trying to make the hole for the loops to go through, I tried drilling through the battery cover but that just scratched it a little. Should I use a different drill or has anyone succeeded with a different method?
I'm leaving a company that said I can keep my phone (S1), but they want the number. I don't have a personal account w/Verizon yet. How can this be done? I don't know if they are planning to use the # right away, but it's associated with them.
I wish there was an easy way for me to portray the amount of disdain I have for my Storm at this time, however, that won't do me any good!I'm just looking to get some insight to my problem and whether or not it can be resolved! It would be really unfortunate if I had to replace my lump of a phone as I am a college student that just moved away from home and am in the middle of my two-year contract.My phone is still in operating order minus the faulty touchscreen, it still receives messages, emails, and even phone calls. All the side buttons work, in short, the screen is just dead.I did not drop it nor spill any liquids on it and I've performed a plethora of battery pulls. I'm at a loss!Let me describe the events that occurred before (seemingly) death of my touchscreen. I was at a friends house preparing for a 9/11 5k race when I noticed my battery was running low so I left it in a safe place to quietly run out of steam because I had no need to carry a phone during a race. At this point it was still fully functional. After the race, I check my phone to see if it was out of power yet which it was. I get home later that night and charge it only to rudely surprised by an inoperable screen. I cleaned the screen and did a few battery pulls afterwards in hopes it was only a minor problem to no avail.
A little hardware information that may be of use:
I was also in a moderate car crash the day prior so perhaps that may have caused some problems? Externally, my phone is in mint condition. I suppose this just hasn't been my week!
I keep trying and can't install .JAD apps onto my Storm and get a message saying something like that kind of file cannot be installed. It's Quickpull that I'm trying to install but this is happening with all the .JAD apps. BBSlider and Google maps which are both .COD files installed fine.
I just upgraded to 126.96.36.1999. my phone is still very slow, hour glass thinking icon pops up all the time. even when im just opening up text msgs or switching applications. just wondering if there are any tips out there to help with the issues my phone is having. thanks
I can dial out and I know the phone connects to the other party (says connected) but I can't hear anything. The phone is not on mute and the volume dial is properly adjusted.Also, the voice recognition software stopped working just before this problem came up. Both problems now are present together.
I am having to get a replacement bb storm and need to know if I use backup and restore, will my contacts as well as calender be able to sync to the new bb? What about transferring videos/pics and emails as well
The phone dial pad on my Storm 9530 suddenly stopped working. All of the 12 buttons are shown on the screen, but buttons 1 through 9 and * and # do not work when they are selected and pressed down.The "0+" key still works and shows the 0 in the number display when selected and pressed down.
Brought my first BB yesterday,a Storm 2 as I hated my iphone - however my BB days could be numbered as first impressions are not so good !Got it unlocked through Vodaphone onto the Orange network as my Iphone contract still has 20 months to go !I cannot connect to the internet unless I am at home and connect through my wifi ?I get "This is a wifi service.Please ensure your device has an active wifi connection and try again "Is this one of many problems that I will get as i am on orange and not Voda ?Also can the memory be increased for music etc ?
trying to connect my storm to my mac, but doesn't seem to work I have plugged in the usb lead, it charges the phone but thats about it, when I go System profiler it doesn't even recognise thats its connected, I've tried it in different USB ports but still nothing.
I have a Verizon Storm 9530, running OS 188.8.131.528. I just upgraded yesterday from 4.7-something. I avoid upgrading ANYTHING because of BS like this- read on...I'm 90% thrilled with the fixes/upgrades/"features" of 5.0. I can finally type in a webpage text field without the browser crapping itself, or use the copy/paste function without performing delicate surgery, or browse music playlists without going berzerk from the horrendous, unusable interface.
However, there were two "gotchas" that really make me consider switching back to 4.7. First is the Auto-dim "feature". It's very annoying, and broken... but tolerable. And covered in about a dozen other threads. So I won't beat that horse here.
My beef is with listening to music. I use my phone to listen to Pandora about 7-8 hours a day. Occasionally I listen to my own MP3's. I noticed right away that after upgrading to 5.0 and the latest version of Pandora (184.108.40.206 -> 220.127.116.11?) that my audio tracks faded in at the beginning. I thought it was some stupid feature introduced into Pandora.
On my way home from work this evening, I noticed it did the same thing with my personal MP3's. All of my songs had a similar, disgusting fade-in that lasted about 1 second. It wasn't even a 'smooth' fade-in, either!URL...(Sorry, can't link with <10 post count) This thread describes EXACTLY what I'm experiencing on my Storm. I've only attempted to listen to music through the headphone jack. I'm using standard, off-the-shelf headphones, along with my cassette adapter in my car- all of them do this. With the built-in speakers, it works fine.
I'm a bit of an audiophile/perfectionist. I've had several other audio devices (MP3 player, Ipod, MD player, CD player), some of which have had options to enable or disable this so-called feature. I've looked everywhere I can think of (trust me, I've been searching these forums all day!) but my Storm has no such option.
I had NO issues with this before OS 5.0, and it's driving me CRAZY. My wife says it's "not such a big deal" but when you're ROCKING OUT in the car, and your favorite song's formerly powerful intro sounds like puke, IT IS a big deal!
