Tips on storm Original blackBerry Smartphones

I bought the original Storm 9530 Saturday. The biggest problem I have with the phone is the internet. I upgraded to OS V5.0.0.328, which I believe is the latest version? I have not installed any 3rd app on the phone and I'm using only what came with the phone and find the internet very slow and quirky. The homepage using blackberry via the browser, I try to access pages under news and to entertain and find that I constantly get the error message to contact the service provider and the video takes over sometimes. My concern is the inconsistency of the phone when accessing information. Sometimes I can access information and sometimes I can't. What is the phone itself? I am constatnly pulling at least three or four bars under a 1XEV signal, the signal 3G OK? I also get the error with the camera after using a looser radio. I even tried to remove some app, I know that I will never use as vz navigator and visual VM with desktop software manager and performance does not improve.

I try not to expect too much of the storm, after all, is just a phone and not a computer. But to pay extra for the plan and not be able to access certain functions is irritating. I consider the upgrade for the Storm 2, if I knew that the phone performs better, but I don't know anyone with the phone. Any advice?

Thank you!

The signal is 1XEV. I also use the BB button to close the programs instead of back out of them. Applications that are open are BB messenger messages, the home screen and the phone icon.

OK, it's all good, 1XEV is correct also.

I do as shown above and try the Opera Mini browser.

  • Ringtone to PC for Storm Crackberry blackBerry Smartphones

    I got my Storm 9530 for two days. I went to crackberry and downloaded several rings. I downloaded the BlackBerry Desktop software. I saw no passage cleared for transfer my ringtones to (a) my pc at (b) my Storm.

    I connect with the USB cable and it recognizes and syncs and updtes, etc.. Is there a place on my PC I have to save my ringtones to them would transfer during the storm? I am running XP and it is not recognizing the storm as a device with folders or avenues to drop and drag anything from A to B.

Maybe someone here can help me.

    For the moment, I don't have the option to log in the missed calls message window, but to see them I have to unlock the storm via password I try * very * inconvenient (btw, the option to view missed calls directly in the call log was yet another function available with earlier models of BB).

    Report it to the police. Report it to your wireless service provider. If you have already installed BB Protect or other applications to protect, activate and do what you need to do. Apart from that, there is nothing to do.

  • Storm or Storm 2 blackBerry smartphones

    I have a chance to be on a Storm 2 of my Storm.  I really love my Storm, I would like WiFi and hopefully a little faster

    experience.  Is there a significant difference between the 2 models?

    Very big difference... typing, double the memory of the device and the speed of the aircraft. If you like the Storm1, you will really like the Storm2.

  • BlackBerry Storm 9500 Blackberry Smartphones - what memory card?

    Hi all - I am very confused... I want to get a memory card 16 GB for my new storm... BUT

    What I have to buy a "Micro SDHC memory card"... or a 'SDHC memory card '... like, form I would say the two are different things... (they are certainly different) is about half the price of the old... not - where I looked (obvious or other) tells me EXACTLY I need... :-/

    I want to make sure I have the right buy!... so to hear from someone who has actually got a card of memory of a storm and who can tell which one it was and that it works... would be great!

    See you soon! :-)

    You certainly want a microSDHC card.  Cell phones usually use cards microSD (or microSDHC) while the cameras use SD (or SDHC) cards.  A SDHC card simply does not fit into your phone (it's too much).

    I use also cards microSDHC SanDisk class 6 with my Storm and they have been great.  While I only used 8 GB cards, I know another person who got a 16 GB microSD card, and he was very happy with it.

    I hope that helps!  Feel free to ask any other questions you may have!

  • Remove Storm 2 blackBerry Smartphones?

    My company is about to renew his contract of service provider, and we requested a change to the Storm 2 9520 handset. Vodafone have informed us that the Storm 2 is removed from the process as there are many technical issues with the aircraft.

    Can someone tell me if this is correct, and if so what will replace it?

    huh, I was not exactly intend to hear that.

    More like this rep from Vodafone not knowing what it was talking about. Quite possible.

    If they persisted with this statement that Vodafone declined 9520 service, perhaps you should ask for something official Voda in writing. And I bet you'll never have him.

  • BlackBerry Storm 9530 Blackberry Smartphones / e mail help!

    I had my responsive phone and have 2 folders created for my 2 email accounts in my messages folder. I get emails in the 'messages' folder, as it has always done. However, I get all of the messages in the files set up for each e-mail account. This is why I can't answer. Does anyone know how to reset or fix this problem? Thank you.

    Appears that you have to return your service books.

    On your BlackBerry device, go to:

    1. options > advanced > host Routing Table > Menu > register.

    2 send your service from your carrier's BIS site books:
    Of your handheld:

    Go to the Personal Email Set Up icon and sign. Then under help!, select Service books and select send service books.

    Your desktop PC:
    North American carriers - scroll down to select your carrier
    Carriers worldwide - find your operator from the list

    3. with the BlackBerry device powered time, remove battery for a few seconds and then reinsert the battery to restart. This restart, even if you have already done this, is often necessary to install the service books.
