BlackBerry Storm Stuff...

I know some of you are getting sick of all the Storm stuff being covered by the BlackBerry blogs, so I'll try and condense a few things here and keep this one short...

1. Storm Training - If you visit Verizon's Online Learning Center, new Storm owners who are having a little difficulty getting up to speed on the device will find some useful tools. There's an Interactive How-To Simulator and Online Tutorials... but if that isn't enough you can also sign up to attend Live Webinars over the first two weeks of December. Or if Verizon training isn't your thing, check out our BlackBerry Storm Tips & Tricks thread!

2. Storm OS Updates - Whether or not you believe OS4.7.0.65 was the intended version of the OS to ship with Verizon's Storm, safe to say updates are coming... and likely sooner than later. BGR today posted a snippet today outlining a few known bugs, which calls for an OTA update in early December to fix them and points to subsequent updates. More info here >>

3. Storm Forum Craziness - Wow. Rewind a few weeks and our BlackBerry Storm forum had a few hundred threads and a couple thousand posts. With the Storm now out on the market for barely two weeks, that's quickly ballooned to over 5,000 threads and over 74,000 posts. Like it, Love it, or Hate it, CrackBerry members have a lot to say about the Storm. Want to weigh in? A good place to start is our Loving or Hating on the Storm? poll and thread!

this may help, my verizon rep talked to someone at RIM and he as told that if you do a total power shut down and then remove the battery and replace it, many of the glitches and lags will be resolved. i tried it and it did seem to help but not completely fix all the problems

Funny... I remember Microsoft using the same technique.

I believe it was called Ctrl+Alt+Del

I love my Storm. I use Keepvid.com to rip youtube videos and play them on my storm for later. MP4 quality. I hope the update will make the phone respond a bit (a lot) faster.

Gotta love how some of the missing features which were available on previous phones aren't even mentioned. Are they even aware of the outrage some people have about the Storm?

Okay so when I put my Storm on vibrate... my few contacts that have a personal ringtone still goes off...how do I fix that so it doesn't ring when I'm on vibrate mood.

Go to the contact with the custom ringtone and check the selection volume to match custom profile. If you changed the ringer volume, it won't follow your profile.

The only thing that kept him sane was his BLACKBERRY. KEVIN HAS TO POST THIS VIDEO UP. HE HAS TO. THIS MAN WAS LOCKED IN HIS HOTEL ROOM AFTER TERRORISTS ATTACKED IN MUMBAI.

British businessman Mark Abell managed to escape from the Oberoi Trident Hotel.

He had barricaded himself inside his room when the militants stormed the building on Wednesday.

Mr Abell said the Indian hotel staff and the security forces had been "fantastic".
