Weird Battery Loss
Moviemaniac1982

Recently over the last month my Battery has been going from full to dead very very quickly, a 25 min phone call will take all 5 bars off my storm and I'm having problems with youtube a 4 minute disturbed or slipknot music video will completely drain my battery and cause my phone to reset. And its been going through a bar every 30 minutes when its idol, only apps that are running are the 4 you need to run the phone. Any suggestions?

Could be an app, but I know the .328 OS is the biggest problem. You need to do an internet search for 5.0.0.419 Storm 1 OS and go there and follow directions. Be sure you back up your phone first. Also you will have to delete vendor file on new OS before you install it. Follow directions for install of hybrid system. This .419 is a BB relased OS but VZW never picked it up. They would prefer to leave everyone with a bad functioning OS is my guess.

2 things come to mind. 1) How much memory do you have left? Look under Options, Memory.
2) What OS ? Third line under about: post it here. It will be 5.0.0.xxx

It seems you have a device error in your system settings. I would recommend performing a hard reset to clear out all settings. The instructions to perform the reset are listed below:


 

1. In the device options, click Security Options.
2. Click General Settings.
3. Press the Menu key.
4. Click Wipe Handheld.
5. To delete all third-party applications from your device, select the Include third-party applications check box.
6. Click Continue.
7. Type blackberry.

Once you have done this it should resolve your issues. Hope this helps
