On my Storm 1, I could just go to my SMS screen, hit menu, then go to 'Compose SMS Text' and enter in any number I wanted to send a text to.On my storm 2, when I try the same, it always asks me to pick someone from my phonebook and I do not have the ability to just enter in a number.

BB Storm2 9550/9520 :: Unable To Compose Email, But Can Reply And Send To Contacts Fine

Mar 28, 2010

I have noticed that i am unable to send an email to a person if i enter the email in the TO: section of the compose email. If i am replying to an email or clicking on a link like craigslist it works fine. If i am sending the email to a contact with a stored email address it works fine.

But if i just enter the email address for instance the little send box in the upper right corner is not bright and is not able to be selected.

Jan 28, 2010

i just got my storm2 a few days ago and was wondering if there is a way to transfer my address book from my curve to my storm2.

I just dont want to take a special trip to BB just to do this if i can do it my self on a computer.

BB Storm2 9550/9520 :: Can You Edit Predictive Text?

Apr 11, 2010

Probably the most frustrating thing on my Storm is the predictive text. Most times it is helpful. Sometimes, it makes we want to hurl the phone through a window. Is there any way to edit what comes up? When I type "You" I get "Ypu" or "Tou". When I type "sorry" I get "apert". Any way to edit what comes up when you type words that are this common?

BB Storm2 9550/9520 :: Contacts List Duplicated

Jan 13, 2010

Every morning when I wake up, my new Storm 2 had duplicated all of its contacts, sometime there is up to 30 of the same contact. I am new to BB in general, and this is driving me crazy! I have google sync running from my google contacts. It has even gone as far as erasing some of my contacts.

My BB handset is now more accurate then my contact list on my desktop. All the other threads have me resetting my handheld, but that is something that I can not do as it is the most accurate now.

Is there a program where I can download all of my contacts to desktop and save them there, and then upload the ones I want back? BTW, for the last 5 days at least I have manually deleted over 400 contacts, this is pretty time consuming! GRR

BB Storm2 9550/9520 :: How Many Contacts Is It Designed To Hold?

May 10, 2010

I just got off the phone after trying to trouble shoot a VZ Navigator issue, and the Blackberry support person told me that the Blackberry was only designed to hold 1000 contacts (more if a contact has multiple entries). Has anyone heard of this? Only 1000 contacts? Really? Or is this just BS?

My Navigator issue was that when my user clicked on "Contacts" inside the Navigator software, it takes about 1 minute 45 seconds to pull up his contacts. The Verizon rep said that's more than likley because it's polling our BES server for any changes and besides, the BB isn't designed to hold more than 1000 contacts.

BB Storm2 9550/9520 :: New OS .607 Custom Text Alert Tones?

Apr 9, 2010

I recently installed the new OS (.607) for the Storm 2 9550 (Verizon) using DM. Everything seemed to go over well; didn't backup my contacts and lost BBM contacts (i didn't think to back them up, Whoops :x ) Anyway, i had SMS alert tones for specific contacts which i had edited while adding the contacts when i first got the phone, back in October/November. When a said person texted/called, the tone that i assigned worked like a charm. Fast Forward to a few days ago (whenever .607 was officially released), i was re-adding my contacts (thank god i still have my old LG Dare), and putting in the custom tones for the specific people like i had before (the ringtones are saved on my 16gig memory card) and i noticed that when one of them called, the tone works as it should. However, when i get a SMS from them, it plays the default SMS tone (which is also custom). The same thing happens with MMS messages as well. Any ideas as to why the default tone plays instead of the custom one i specified? (I tried taking out the "-" in the phone #, since when i enter them in my contacts, i enter the number like so: (XXX)XXX-XXXX) but when i do that, the SMS shows up in my BBM chats with the BBM alert (was a suggestion i found while Googling the issue).

BB Storm2 9550/9520 :: Text Message Make New Paragraph

Mar 12, 2010

I just got the storm 2 and there are two things that annoy me, one is the enter button sends my text messages and on my curve that button made a new paragraph. My question is how do you drop down a line (make a new paragraph) when texting on the storm 2?I understand the OS 5.0.32 doesn't have the feature to turn off the enter button from sending, hope verizon releases an os update soon.

BB Storm2 9550/9520 :: Text Message Received Time

Jul 21, 2010

Didn't know where else to put this, since Idk if it's a 9550 only thing or all BB's, but when I receive a text message I like to know when I received it, or how long ago. But whenever I tap the received message it always says received one minute ago, unless it was on an earlier date. But, if I get a text at 8am and check it at noon, then tap on it, it says received one minute ago. Any way to fix this?

BB Storm2 9550/9520 :: Contacts Custom Ring Tone For SMS?

Feb 1, 2010

- i set a custom ringtone for SMS for a contact (ie BBPro_Sanguine)
- all other options (vol, LED, vib, etc) are set to "Active Profile"
- hit "try it" and you get nothing.
- if that person actually sends an SMS, either you dont get ringtone, or it does default Lightspeed tone.

also, if you set any of the other options (vol,LED,vib), the ring tone works: but if you do custom ringtone for voice calls, everything work as it should. started happening after i upgraded to the 428 leak. hasnt gone away since all the hybrids if installed.

BB Storm2 9550/9520 :: Contacts Lost After Hard Reset?

Sep 18, 2010

Good evening everybody. For several days I had noticed that my BB ( 9550 Storm 2, Verizon Wireless, about one year old, v[Bundle 1206, Platform would consume the batterly life much faster ( in less than 12 hours, I would have to charge it again), I went to the store and gave me some tips about how to conserve energy and such and did not think I needed a new battery. Finally on Thursday it would go into a loop of freezing and resetting and then freezing again , and resetting, for hours. I had synchronized the device the night before. So ,I decided to go for a hard reset. NOw, in spite of the sync'ing, I don't have my contacts in the device and, what is worse, I don't know where to look for them in my laptop.

BB Storm2 9550/9520 :: Restricting Contacts While In Bedside Mode?

Jan 13, 2010

Apologies if this has been answered already, I've searched for quite some time and not been able to find the answer I'm quite new to BlackBerries, and have had a Storm2 for about a month now. Each night I plug it in to charge and use the Bedside Mode. What I'd like to do is have it so that it all notifications are off, except for those from specific contacts. I've set up a BlackBerry Contact Group with those people in (ie just family, close friends, important colleagues, etc.). Is there a way for me to do this?

BB Storm2 9550/9520 :: 9550 Or 9520 / Which Is Better Suited To Canadian Phone Companies

Mar 19, 2010

I have scrolled through the forums reading about both these phones and i have a few questions

1.What i am still unsure of is which phone is better suited to Canadian phone companies neither will get 3g coverage but will one work better than the other like will they both get 2.5g coverage?

2. Also i have read that possibly the 9520 will be comin to rogers but i havnt heard anything recent on it does anyone have news on a release date or anything?

3. Right now i am thinkin of buyin the storm 9550 from telus and either goin with fido or terminate my contract with them and stay with telus or move to rogers. Is there a company that is better suited to the storm 2 or will either giv me 2.5g?

BB Storm2 9550/9520 :: Contacts Play Assigned Tone For Phone But Not SMS?

Alright, so I posted something similar before, but now it's an evolved issue. When my contacts call me, the specified ringtone works. When the same contacts SMS me, it only plays the default tone I've chosen, not their specified tone. I've turned off encryption for contacts.
