Deleting Applications

How do you totally delete an application from your My World App. list? I have tried to delete one, and it just uninstalls it, or archives it. Any help.

Thank you,

Robert Confused

Why is phone resetting?

(I wanted to restart this thread.)

Device continues to reset itself. I've caught it doing this twice in one day. It is annoying as it is disabled during this time.

Tech support had me pull the battery and re-activate the network (*22Cool. The device continues to reset.

I do have auto on/off enabled - to 8am to 8 pm. The device resets mid-day.

Defective device? network connectivity issue? The resets occur at different geographical locations.

Advice welcome. I am within 30 day trial.

Thanks much.

Playing music through car stereo

Will the Storm 2 allow you to play music (Pandora) through the headphone jack to your car stereo aux jack? And if so, can you still receive a call, hang up and resume playing music?

Thank you,

Mystical port

On the back of the Storm, there is a port directly above the camera viewfinder and the flash. I questioned a Verizon tech on its function and was told it was cosmetic. This is nonsense because my case has a cutout for the port.

Does anyone know what it is? A speaker? auto focus? mike input? There has to be a reason for it. ????

Take a look at your Storm2 You'll see it.

Thanks for the right answer..... Rolling Eyes

Screen Issues

Has anyone else had problems with the screen not pressing down at random times while using the phone. I have had two storm 2's and had problems with the first one and the second one. On the first one when I would unlock the phone it would lock right back up. So I had to hit the unlock button two times everytime to unlock the phone. I am also having the same problem on my second phone as well.

Also on the second phone I have had a problem with the bottom right corner of the screen giving me feed back (like it will push back up on my finger). Also some times it just won't press in.

Let me know if anyone else has had this problem. I am able to get a new phone for a year on my warranty, but if I keep getting the same results on ev...

Storm2 keeps on shutting off?!?

so I've been noticing lately that my new BB storm2 keeps on shutting off periodically throughout the day? does anyone know how to prevent this or what is causing it? It's happening more when I'm getting a text or a BBM? That the only trouble that I am seeing... and of course it gets annoying after awhile that you try to pick up your phone and its off..

Open Question for Storm Experts.

Currently have iPhone 3GS. For a few different reasons considering switch to Verizon. Love iPhone but not thrilled with Droid or Eris. Honestly think BB would make me more productive, plus it seems like everyone I know communicates on BBM! I have played with both the Storm2 and the Tour. Coming from iPhone, I do prefer the size of the screen on Storm2. So, a few questions:

Can I synch to my GMail calendar?

How's the camera? I frequently use iPhone to shoot (small) videos of my kids.

How is browsing picture files? iPhone is super easy for managing pics and such. I never carry photos of the family around now. Just have the phone.

If I chose, can I load movies (from DVDs I own?) to the Storm2 for flights, long-trips, etc.?...

Dictionary for Blackberry

Does anyone know if it's possible to download a dictionary to the Blackberry, like Webster or similar, like Nokia E71 has. I know you can access it through the Web Brouser, but it takes time. Thank you.

Web browser

Any time I try to use the web browser it is telling me to first make sure I have a valid wifi connection. WIFI is turned on and shouldn't it use VZW first anyway?

A Simple Theme that Can't be Beat

There is a new Theme available at the Crackberry theme store which can be DL »

com_Plazmic_Theme Storm Rezon_2WB_B LUE Version 2009 Vendor Guzzle 3R, that has everything you would want in a theme. No white bars in landscape, 2 user definable icons on the home screen, and 4 dedicated.

What makes it unique is a click on the right side of the home screen, slides the menu, and pressing the left side invokes the QuickLaunch app. No icon needed for QuickLaunch. The theme is very clean with excellent icons and performance. No memory leak and response is instantaneous. This one is worth a look!

The app is free..... Wink

Screen turning on on SMS alert

Is there a way to get the phone display to come on when you are receiving a text or email, like it does when you are receiving a call? I get allot of sports and news texts at all hours so I keep it on vibrate. But if I have the phone out of my pocket, it would be nice to see.

Thank you,
