Black berry Storm keeps freezing up on me

I Just got my storm a week ago and now it keeps freezing up with that little clock thing in the middle like its loading something i tried leaving it alone and it lasts more than an hour and will not do anything such as recieve calls or texts or even let me cancel. i have tried erasing a lot of stuff off of my memory card and the only way i have found to get it to un freez is take the battery out of it but when i turn it back on it kinda goes back into the freez frenzy

    Same problem, almost regret getting the storm. I should've stayed with my handy Treo. ::wishin the storm had a soft reset button::

    if i take the battery out it may reboot, and after a while cuts off and goes back to the white screen with the clock. went on line with black berry did a software reinstall and it lasted for about 2 hours and the phone went back to a white screen with running clock.

    I downloaded different themes to my blackberry storm and ever since its done the same thing. I tried to delete the downloaded themes but when I go to the options menu the delete button isn't in it anymore. I want a new phone but not on my insurance cause I'm over the storm and thats all they will replace...its not worth the additional $50 after what we have already paid for it!!!

    Had the Storm for about a week. Nothing on it but what it came with. I get the freeze and the clock of doom every other day. I force power off and on again and it take about 5 minutes to come to it's senses. Very annoying! Especially when I really need the thing to work.

    Same issue for me, and its an OEM charger. I have seen posts where it is due to an aftermarket charger, but this is OEM

    Mine does the exact same's gotten progressively worse and often gets stuck on camera mode for no reason at all!!!!!

  • katieb324 Apr 07, 2009

    Mine does the timeout as I'm receiving calls- it won't let me accept them- then immediately goes to "missed call" this is very annoying.

  • coty3 May 10, 2009

    yep, same here. the little clock thing comes up and lasts for about 2-10 minutes. normally, if it doesn't unfreeze by then, i take the battery out, and put it back in. then it'll reboot itself, which takes FOREVER! i LOVE the phone so much that i refuse to get rid of it, but that freezing thing ticks me off like no other. please help?

My storm screen freezes on the black screen when i turn it on it looks like a time colck and then the red light stays on and then goes off....cant get to home screen

Does the screen go black after the Time Clock comes on? When I plug in my storm, the time clock comes on.

If in the time clock, you should be able to press the Blackberry Menu button, and choose close to close out of the Clock. If you are in Bedside mode, you will be asked if you wish to exit.

Click yes.
