BB Storm 9530 - 9500 :: Screen Lock Has Not Worked Properly

Jan 6, 2010

Ever since I upgraded to OS 5.00.328 my storm's screen lock has not worked properly. When I try to unlock it, it will immediatly lock back up on its own and I have to unlock it 2-3 times before it will stay unlocked. I also have the same problem when trying to lock the screen, it unlocks itself 2-3 times before it will stay locked. Has anyone else had this problem?

BB Storm 9530/9500 :: Storm 9530 - Screen Suddenly Unresponsive

Sep 12, 2010

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:

Verizon Carrier

OS .328

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!

BB Storm 9530/9500 :: Lock And Mute Button Is Hard To Press Down

Jan 6, 2010

my storm fell out of my holster a week ago and scratched it around where the lock button and mute button are and the lock button is hard to press down to get it to lock i used to be able to hold it in one hand and lock it with just my finger. now i have to use my other hand and press real hard on it to get it to lock and sometimes it takes a few seconds to unlock and then sometimes it will unlock and then re lock right away and vise versa. im gonna get a new cover for the scratched area but has anyone fixed this before.

BB Storm 9530/9500 :: Storm White Screen Of Death?

Feb 26, 2010

I have had my Storm since it came out. I take great care of it, only update with official revs of the BB OS. I only have a few applications. I turned it on a few days ago and got a white screen that had a JVM error 102. Called VZ tech support and they told me I had a corrupt file in the OS and asked me to unistall and reinstall. I have done this 5 times and still I have a white screen that has reset on it. Even doing a cold boot, nothing changes.

I took my first blackberry storm 9539 as a gift recently. I have no previous experience with blackberry phones and the first thing i noticed as soon as i tried to test the phone is that every time i tap on the screen to make a selection the whole screen is mooving. It seems like the screen is not fixed very well on the phone body. Is it normal or the phone i got is defective.

BB Storm 9500 :: 9530 VZW - Screen Is Black

Jan 27, 2010

I have a Storm 9530 (Verizon), My screen went black today, I can't see anything to do anything. I tried to do a backup to my PC but it kept disconnecting, then connecting. So then I tried to update it, and it did the same thing, the update got part of the way through and stopped because it was waiting for me to "initiaize device", so I just started tapping the screen hoping something would happen (can't see anyhting rememeber) nothing did! I have taken the battery out too many times to count today, trying to figure this out. I even took it out and left it out for over an hour. Any ideas on how I can get my phone back?

BB Storm 9530/9500 :: Dust - Cases And Screen Protectors

Jan 27, 2010

Took my storm1 into a corporate store to get my phone replaced for dust in the screen. Rep looks at my phone and says "well, thats why we try to sell you phone cases and screen protectors...we will NOT replace this for this reason." I asked her where in the manufacturers warranty it states my phone requires any protective devices. I didn't even want to argue the obvious point that a screen protector or a case wont prevent this. She just took it back and blew a can of air around the perimeter of the screen and said "sorry, but thats all I can do for you.

BB Storm 9530/9500 :: Voice Dialing And Dust Under Screen

Mar 5, 2010

I have a 4 day old BlackBerry Storm 9530 and so far I love it. But I have an issue with the voice dialing and am wondering if anyone else has had this issue or if there is a fix.

When I activate voice commands everything works from the bluetooth, but about 50% of the time when I use voice commands to call someone, I will get to the point where the phone and I confirm the selection(name) to call and it will say(and show on the BlackBerry screen) for example: "Susan Home Calling..." And the blackberry will stay on that screen, not connecting to anyone if I press any key it will bring me right back to the "home" screen on the BB, no making any calls.

Also, I am noticing some dust specs under the top left corner of my touchscreen, I know its underneath the screen because I can tell, and I am very OCD about wiping off my screen and keeping my phone immaculately clean..

I am somewhat saddened by the fact that such a well known and highly respected device doesn't in fact have an 'airtight' screen, and lets dust underneath, especially after only four days, in a clean house and never even in a pocket..

BB Storm 9530/9500 :: Screen And Buttons Starting Acting Strange

Jul 20, 2010

About 3-4 weeks screen starting acting strange. When I would hover a button (not clicking it...but to make it blue)...other buttons would become blue as well. Or the button I was hovering wouldn't turn blue and another would. When I would actually click the button...say for messages...the browser would start instead. Also...sometimes I would have the browser or gmail app open and after I clicked the BB button to bring up the would be completely frozen. It's like this periodically...but always occurs after a call...and the phone won't work for a good 1-2 minutes. This became worse and worse. So I finally did a complete reinstall of BB Things were better for a week or so...and then it went downhill again. I haven't dropped my phone or added any new applications in months.

I have Verizon warranty...but if I go in there I have a feeling they are going to tell me that its a software issue and not hardware. I really don't know what it is...I just want the phone to work again.

Has anyone tested this?I've been operating as if this assumption is true, but decided to do some searching to see if it was just rumor and hearsay. I've found nothing that confirms this notion.Anyone have any real insight as to how home screen icons affect performance?

BB Storm 9530/9500 :: Storm Shut Off - Wont Reboot Completely

Feb 11, 2010

Has a Storm and it just shut off on. When I pull the battery, the red light comes on for a few seconds and the screen and buttons light up. Then, it starts over. 20 minutes later and it's still in that same cycle.

It's rocking Verizon's official 5.0 and she doesn't do anything to modify or hack it. I've never encountered this before.

I'm wondering if the OS became corrupt, but we're @ Red Lobster and there's nothing I can do now.

BB Storm 9530/9500 :: Importing 3rd Party Apps From Old Storm To New

Jan 6, 2010

So my old, wine covered Storm is gone and I got a brand new replacement from Telus today. Hurray! I backed up the old phone and restored it backup on the new one, but all my third party apps are gone (Telus told me that they should transfer, but I was skeptical). Is there anyway to get these back without having to re-download them all? There's two or three that I actually paid for... it would suck to have to re-buy them!

I'm looking at BlackBerry Desktop Manager, and there's an option to import 3rd party apps from the old phone to the new one, but you need to have both phones at the same time I think. Not too handy!
