I fired up my old Storm to see if the fields on my Storm2 were different...not the case.

From the options menu click on security options. There will be 5 fields to select from. #5 is Security Wipe. Click on that and Security Wipe choices to fill your screen. Check off User Installed Applications. REMOVE the check by Emails, contacts, etc. or you will have to reset all email accounts and parameters.

You will now be required to type in the word Blackberry in the default blank field to confirm the application wipe. Make sure you've detailed your locations for reinstalling the lost apps and that you've backed up your files on desktop mgr.

See if this partial "bricking" eliminates a corruption interrupting your DL of 5.0. If the problem still persists, you might have a bad DTMgr file. 5.0 is so overwhelming better than 4.7! Its worth the annoyance to do this. Believe me, you will be amazed at the performance improvement. I suffered for a year with 4.7 and it became a "horse of a different color" as soon as a clicked the screen one time with 5.0.......
