BB Storm2 9550/9520 :: Incoming Calls Showing Saved Names Unknown?

Jun 30, 2010

Every cell I've had until now shows the contacts name as long as they are in the phones contact list. I'm using a Storm 2 9550 and I've been rooting through the settings trying to see if there's a way to show a contacts name but I'm not having much luck.

Apr 1, 2010

I have an annoying issue with incoming calls. when one comes in, the screen will lock up in landscape mode. even when i hold the phone upright, it's still frozen in landscape and the ringtone cuts in and out. then eventually after touching the screen multiple times it will unfreeze and the ringtone starts all over. this has happened with every hybrid and os ive had. even with the .320 i believe.

BB Storm2 9550/9520 :: Keylock Troubleshooting Upon Incoming Calls

Jul 14, 2010

I bought this app today because I thought it would help with my problem. When I reach into my pocket to answer a call I almost always end up ignoring the call by hitting the end button. Even though I set the lock function to stay locked when you get an incoming call it does not do this. I would like the app to force me to unlock the phone to answer. Any help, was this the wrong app for my problem?

BB Storm2 9550/9520 :: Alarm Playing Unknown Sound - TELUS .320

Jun 10, 2010

recently my alarm has been acting up. i just did a restore the other day to see if it would fix the problem and it happened again this morning. the alarm tune is set on the antelope. no matter what profile i am using ( vibrate, silent or loud) sometimes it plays this very soft 3 short tone tune. i went into the tune file to see what the name of it is...but there is no tune that sounds like this, trying to recreate this problem will just sound off the antelope tune, my phone is always plugged in when this happens. *also im running TELUS .320, before i was using Verizon .607 and i thought that was the reason*

BB Storm2 9550/9520 :: SMS Freezing Up And Showing Blank?

Apr 1, 2010

Everytime I get a new text, when I try to open it freezes my phone up and I have to hit escape key to get out of it, but when I do that and try to get back to the SMS it works but then the text is blank and I cant read it. It happens randomly, even when in a new SMS convo, so its not like its taking up memory. Then sometimes it wont even let me open the text at all, and then I have to delete it and start a new one just to reply back.Also its not just one contact, its all the SMS messages. It started doing it in .517, then I switched to a hybrid, it kept doing it, and then I tried the .607 and Im still getting it.

BB Storm2 9550/9520 :: Having Trouble Making Calls

Jan 16, 2010

For some reason when I go to call someone and hit the send key its just saying calling + the number and doesn't start the counter or start the ringing for 5-10 seconds. More towards the 10 second range. Also in the corner of the screen where the arrows are to show data going thru there is still a arrow but a very small one and then when the call goes thru it goes to the regular size arrows. Does anyone know what it is? It only started recently. I am using it on verizon.

Anyone know how to record phone calls on the Storm2? I tried looking for an app, but no go so far.

Any thoughts or knowledge of an app out there for this? Thanks ahead for any insight!!

Mar 26, 2010

I bought a new verizon storm 2 phone, at least I think its new, and unlocked it for t-mobile. A lot of the times, when I make a call or receive a call after like 10 seconds or so, theres no sound and call fails...Is my phone refurbished or this something that happens commonly with the storm 2? Sometimes I receive calls and make calls just fine, but it does this pretty often.

BB Storm2 9550/9520 :: Getting Number Pad To Default When Receiving Calls

Aug 8, 2010

We use a service at our office that I forwards our calls to our mobile phones. However, when the call is forwarded I need to press 1 to allow it to come through. It is annoying that I have to hit the icon at the bottom left to make the number pad come up... and I often miss the call because the screen will not come up fast enough to hit 1 to receive it. Is there a way to make the number pad come up (and stay up) by default when receiving a call?

BB Storm2 9550/9520 :: BuzzBerry Screwed LED For Missed Calls

Jul 6, 2010

I wanted to try BuzzBerry Free so I download it from the app-store, didn't like it so I deleted it and now my LED doesn't flash when I have a missed call anymore.All the other LED notifications work except when I have a missed call, it just stays blank.I tried deleting, restarting, reinstalling, restarting and it the LED will only work on missed calls if BuzzBerry is installed and controlling it.So I even tried deleting, BuzzBerry Free again, and installed the BuzzBerry 3 7 Day trial, didn't like that either, uninstalled it, restartd, then battery pull for 3 mins and my Missed Called LED is still not working.

Did they rig this program so that you have to buy it or they leave your phone screwed?I hope someone can help me with this because I only got my Storm 2 less than month ago and I think they made this horrible app to permanently screw your phone up if you chose not to buy.I'm using OS version on Bell mobility Should I try upgrading or changing the OS?Is this a problem I can call BlackBerry about ? If I can't fix this I want a phone replacement and the makers of this program hanged.

BB Storm2 9550/9520 :: Block ALL Calls / Text From Coming - Not Interfere With Skype Mobile

Sep 6, 2010

Help/Advice is needed ASAP!I'm leaving for Switzerland in less than 10 hours and I needed to find a way to keep in contact with my family here in the U.S. for relatively cheap. Well I bought a plan with Skype (since I have Skype mobile on my storm) where I can make international calls for reasonable rates. Now I am afraid that my friends may call/text my phone while I'm overseas NOT using skype and rack up my Verizon bill. Is there anyway at all that I can block calls and texts from coming to my phone but not interfere with my skype mobile?Also has anyone used Skype mobile overseas? Does it work well?

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 :: 9550 Or 9520 / Which Is Good - Won't Be Using CDMA

Jan 21, 2010

I've been thinking of getting a Blackberry for quite some time now and decided to get the storm2 due to it's larger screen.I m located in Canada and using Fido (or Rogers). So I could get either one right? But why do I hear some rumors that 9550 is not so good on GSM as the 9520? Should I get 9550 or 9520? I wont be using the CDMA at all, but it seems that I could get 9550 a lot easier than 9520 in Canada.

BB Storm2 9550/9520 :: Went From 9550 To Iphone And Back To 9550

May 26, 2010

First I would like to say hello to my fellow berry folks. This is my first post on this site. I was a regular on but I see there is a greater following on crackberry, so I'll share my story here......
I have AT&T for my carrier and I was up for an phone upgrade. A few months ago I purchased a brand new 9550 (had the Pearl2 before that and the original Pearl before that!) that was unlocked and I loved it!!! Since this was a Verizon phone, I could not use AT&T's 3G network so I decided to go with the "next best thing", the Iphone. Well, 24 hours later I was returning the phone back to the story. I was unimpressed. Here are the reasons why, though they may seem petty, was enough for me to give it back.........

1. No LED status indicator. I didn't realize how much I actually depended on this. For example, if you get a text or better yet miss a text, you MUST push the home button to turn the screen on to see if you received a text or not. With the Blackberry, a quick glance at the status indicator LED would let you know that. This will never be capiable with any current Iphone as they do not have any such "bulb". There are apps that can "flash" the screen but I can imagine that would play a big part in the battery life. I've read on a few Iphone forums that the users wish they had an LED indicator, while other said that it would be annoying to have this feature. But as annoying as it may be, it is an OPTION with the Blackberry.

2. No sound profiles. Well, it actually has two. Silent, which you only have the option to change vibrate to on/off. The other option is just a general option where you can change the loudness on the ring via a slider. There is a Sound Profile app that'll cost you about $7.

3. You cannot use any apps outside the Apple App store unless you "jailbreak" it. Jailbreaking will void your warranty. We all already know Blackberry is open to all outside apps.

4. Home screen does not "flip" when turned to landscape. May be an app for that.

5. Scary to think what happens to this phone when the battery actually dies, since you can't replace it (not a reason to totally ditch the phone but worth noting).

A few things that were pretty sweet on the Iphone........

1. Safari. Very nice and extremely user friendly. Was very fast but I don't have anything to compare it with since my Blackberry could not use the 3G network. Hopefully RIMs new browser will be up to par.

2. A trillion apps..........Nuff said........It'll be quite awhile for Blackberry to catch up in that department. But my guess it that 95% of Apples apps are pretty useless.

3. No clicking. This is bitter/sweet for me. For typing, clicking is a MUST for me and I missed it dearly. But for larger "depressions" like icons and such where mistakes are minimal due to the fact of the larger area to push on, a simple tap on the screen was very nice. I wish a "tap not click" was an option on the Blackberry, as I would be tapping icons and clicking text.

BB Storm2 9550/9520 :: Post Impressions Of Screen Click On New Storm2

Mar 17, 2010

I just got a replacement Storm 2 dated Mar 6, 2010. My old Storm worked pretty well but sometimes the bottom row buttons would stick, especially when using the Seidio extended battery with the plastic battery cover. I have a week or so to try both out before sending back the old one.

The new screen feels more... buttery. Its smooth. Buttery smooth. The old screen is clickier. The bottom row buttons on the new screen are a little sloppy compared to when you press the middle of the screen. Does anyone else notice this? I don't like that.But so far the new screen hasn't locked up on the bottom row as much, especially when trying to use it while the Storm is lying on a table.

For typing, the old screen seems just a bit faster, maybe just a bit less pressure required. New screen is a bit harder to type on but smoother.The old screen has a warmer white color than the old, but that is OK the old was fairly "blue".I don't know for sure yet which I like better! But will update here as I find more. If new screen prevents "hard button" syndrome than that's probably enough.
