Blackberry storm switches itself off when battery low

This i suppose is not unreasonable, but when i plug it in and leave it charge, 2hrs later it still wont restore radio signal and still cant use it! ridiculus, only 3 months old too. whats that about??? and it does stuff i didn't ask it to-eg am writing a text and suddenly camera turns on when i never touched any side buttons then that horrid egg timer comes up and it crashes for 10mins or more!!!

    Check the type of charger you are using. I have seen aftermarket chargers that will fit into the BlackBerry charging port, and the BB will even indicate it is charging, but won't actually charge the BB properly. Try this with the original charger provided with your BB and see if the problem persists.

I just got my bb pearl 8100 and was able to successfully unlock it but as soon as i started to add up my phone address it started to do weird things on it's own. eg. the cam switches on even if you don't touch it, there are instances that it would redirect you to the address book when you start using the pearl cursor. the other problem i had with it is it doesn't transfer phone adress from the sim to the phone. can someone help out with this? some people said it's got something to do with the firmware that they may have installed or maybe the way they unlocked the phone? i'm totally lost right now.

Charging my phone


It is better to charge while it is off because incase of any unwanted or unpredicted power outage, With the phone off, it will not have any effect on it.

You can also leave it on if your line is always busy but i advice you power off to charge.

Take care.

Blinking red led while charging and tries to turn itself on but screen just goes blank and keeps charging

This can be caused by the fact that you ran your battery so low that when its charging the phone tried to turn itself on but loses all power instantly and dies try charging the phone through the computer you might have better luck with getting it to run properly.

Blackberry storm wont turn on or charge red light blinks constantly is there a physical reset button

This may work. Mine was doing the same thing this morning so I was looking through forums to no avail.
I have been using my USB charger since I got my Storm as I left my wall charger in another city and only just got it back...
The phone would do the same thing when I tried to charge (off USB) depsite pulling out battery etc.
I went home and plugged into wall charger and left it (maybe 20 minutes?) and a battery with a lightning bolt followed by the loading page and it is now back to life...
Hope this works out for you!!
