try the hard reset combination, though let me warn you first that the phone shall be formatted and brought to factory settings and all the contacts, messages, apps everything will be deleted from the phone
procedure for hard reset :
- switch off the phone
- now hold all keys 3 + Green key + *key and power up
- hold all the keys till you see "Formatting" once you see the word you can leave the keys
I had to do this for my old phone! here's the steps!
1. While in standby mode, press the left soft key for Menu
2. Select Address Book (8)
3. Select Contact List (1)
5. Press the left soft key for Options
9. Select Copy (3)
10. Select SIM (2)
11. Press the left soft key to Save.
However, there is a FREE app
for Windows Mobile users that own a Pocket PC, Smartphone or MotoQ.
The program works well. (I use it myself) It's called, CallFirewall. (It works best in a Pocket PC cell phone running Windows Mobile 6 or better.) (ie.: Sprint HTC Touch Pro, for example).
If you need a Pocket PC phone with Windows Mobile to use this app, contact your cellular provider for available phones.
CallFirewall basically rejects any or all unwanted calls.
Features & Options:
a. Accecpt all calls, or
b. Accept call from My Contacts only - accepts calls from contacts only, others are rejected
c. Reject all calls, or
d. White List - accepts calls only from the white listed nos
e. Black List - accepts all call except from the black listed nos
f. Black List Pattern - any no STARTING from the black list pattern list is rejected.
for eg. if you enter "123", so all nos STARTING from "123" will be rejected
this is a very nice option with which you can block nos from any
particular network, country, city , area or whatever you can think of.
Finally there is also an option to reply with an SMS. (Text Messaging)
There is a download for pocket mac on Blackberries website. this should work. After installing the initial one, there is a patch The patch address is listed below.
if you are still experiencing issues, please contact Verizon Wireless support while using a different phone than your storm. The support team should be able to walk you through getting your equipment to sync. The storm should be compatible with a Mac.
Voice command is activated by the side button that is alone (right side if your facing the phone's screen) when the phone is closed. I don't know how to prevent the phone from doing that, but I do know how to make sure the phone does not say "Please say a command."
Menu Settings and Tools (Far right icon) Tools (#2 on the list) Voice Commands (#1 on the list) Hit settings, which is going to be the right bumper button (above the CLR key) Go to prompts (#5 on the list) Mode (#1 on the list) It will be currently set on prompts, which is why it says "Please say a command." You can either set it to readout or tones only. Tones produces a short beep. Readouts only displays text (no noises). Being that you have your phone on silent, I assume you want readouts.
That will at least prevent stop the phone from making random statements in your pocket. Hope this helps.
I had a similar problem where not only was it dialing the contact list randomly but also just entering keystrokes on its own (like it was possessed). Turns out there was a short in the top part of the phone (i.e. LCD screen part) due to water damage. The only thing the tech and I could come up with is that I used my phone when outside/jogging/exercising and sweat could have gotten in there. I had not spilled any liquid or drinks on the phone or dropped it in the washer....
