Storm 2 not working in car all of a sudden--update software?

My storm 2 has worked flawlessly with the bluetooth in my car since I bought the car in February. Now , about three days ago, all of a sudden, when I go to the phone/info button on the car and try to use my speed dials or contacts..it says "call waiting " and there is a counting upwards number.

I went to Verizon, they sent me to Lexus. I went to Lexus, they said that I have to upgrade my software using the cord that came with the phone syncing it with my computer and downloading some BB Suite software? Seems like alot of trouble and kind of ridiculous to have to go through all of that. The lexus rep said it would take about 45 minutes. Add to that, I can't find the cable that came with the phone to do so even if I wanted to.

Anyon...

Storm3/Storm4

Well in the past we all thought that the rumored Blackberry Slider had to be the Storm 3, however I could not see how that would make any sense, because adding a physical keyboard to the Storm series defeats the purpose of the Storm. I am a follower of the BlackBerry since the first BlackBerry Storm, which had so many problems, however made me into a fan of the BlackBerry. I am now an owner of the BlackBerry Storm 2 and find it a pretty enjoyable phone to use, but can't help but to think about the Storm 3. Yes I will get that phone. Lol, I am pretty much a Storm addict now, and really have high hopes for the future of BlackBerry. Not just based off of gut feeling that BlackBerry will shock and continue to accelerate in the mobile industry, ...

FOR THEME LOVERS

There is a fabulous value for theme affection ados. BlingBerry (available at crackberry.com) offers a package of 14 themes entitled Appleberry Dark & Stacked. They come with various features such as 2 home screens, hidden today, transitions, extra icon slots, various wallpapers, etc. They are fast, responsive, have terrific menu screens, and are clearly defined.

With so many out there to choose from, you can't beat the value of this offering.

A Look at the BB 6.0 OS

This actually looks very promising, there are a lot of subtle changes that you would miss if you're not a BlackBerry user. New features and refinements:

- Slide the homescreen icons to pull up the Application Menu.

- "Extended Search" in the Media player which searches your library of multimedia while also searching YouTube, and presumably the internet.

- Cover flow style media player.

- New YouTube application, more iPhone style looking.

- Pinch to zoom added to photos.

- Some sort of Quick Menu to switch applications, zoom, set as wallpaper, all within multimedia.

- Touching the notifications area on the home screen causes all of your "Today" content (Messages, Calls, Calendar events) to slide down.

- Improved HTML...

to hawkeye

hey, how do u like the storm2 compared to the storm1? im still on the 9530 and its starting to becoming annoying; theres non stop lag! i think the best way to fix it is to delete my 3rd party apps... which is somewhere around 20 different apps..i start up the phone with less than 1mb Crying or Very sad and im really considering upgrading it to the 9550.. or maybe wait for the iphone to get on verizon(figers crossed).. even tho im a blackberry addict.. only thing i like about the iphone is all the free apps! LOL! but its useless at multitasking..

whats your opinion?? upgrade or wait for something better?

DESKTOP MGR. MANAGES TO DESTRUCT

I've learned a lesson today regarding the Desktop Manager restore function that I'd like to share. I have 6 themes with over 100 icons and 10 folders customized on each one. I needed to restore a file from a successful backup using D.T. Mgr., so I thought. Rolling Eyes

What I discovered after restoration was that all custom folders were deleted with the content sent to the default download folder. My menu icons (50) were rearranged or moved. All of the custom designed setups were eliminated as if they were DL for the first time. This included the Stock Zen, too!

So, the lesson learned here is NOT to do a restore unless you've crashed your phone or have lost it. If you alter your themes or design a menu pattern that you've customized...

I now have the Backup Assistance App. Installed it and it worked fine, I did the exact same process to my wife's Storm2 and no back up Assistant Icon, and can't seem to find it anywhere, any ideas? I already called and talked to two tech reps. they said they will get back to me Saturday. Any ideas, anyone? Eh?


Thank you,

Storm 9550 OS 5.0.0.607 Leak!

It's a leak and not officially released anywhere of course. I think I am going to try this one after sitting out the last leak.

I must be missing the days when I used to update every 2 weeks or so with the 9530 Laughing

BBM Inheritance

Has everyone noticed a little addendum to their device? It appears RIM pushed the BB Messenger Icon onto the home screen, and onto the Storm as a core application. The 607 build also brought with it 2.6Mb of device memory occupancy with no way to delete it.

The icon keeps popping up on my home screen even if I hide it or send it to the junk folder.

That resource "development energy" would have been better applied to an OS that utilized media card resources for 3rd party apps..... :

Gmail Issues (asked in Storm Forum)

I setup a gmail account and then setup my work email in the settings -> accounts and import. The reply is setup to use works email, but for some reason if someone attached a delivery receipt in outlook both the works ISP and gmail send delivery receipt emails. The issue is that the gmail account sends the delivery email using the gmail account.

I don't want our customers knowing my gmail account.

This issue does not happen with the Droid Gmail App.
