But after you do this, will your music, ringtones, pictures, contact, etc remain on the phone?

What you need to try to do is reinstall the blackberry OS (operating system) on your device.
Assuming you have Verizon
First install Blackberry desktop manager it should be in the CD that came with the phone.
If you can't find it download it <a rel='nofollow' href="https://www.blackberry.com/Downloads/contactFormPreload.do?code=A8BAA56554F96369AB93E4F3BB068C22&dl=5E695511C1F9656B8E3E63DAB060F469">HERE</a>
then download the OS software for your phone <a rel='nofollow' href="http://vzw.smithmicro.com/blackberry/download.aspx?ct=personal">HERE</a>
Connect your phone to your computer and start Desktop manager.
click on application loader, on update software click start, click ok on USB pin selection.
when you get to the device backup and restore options, click settings and make sure backup options box is unchecked and device data boxes are both checked, click ok, click next, skip the email signup stuffs,and finish.
After the software is installed the phone should boot back up.

Issues charging using USB and Computer


solution is to install only USB driver, so that PC recognizes the Blackberry correctly, and can also charge the device accordingly.

Try and download usb driver for windows xp or windows vista

My blackberry storm 9350 is charging on the usb and it has a solid red light that goes off every 30 mins. The phone will not turn on.


Try pulling the battery out a few times or maybe even replacing your battery. This used to happen to my phone all the time and it has suddenly stopped doing it- I'm not sure what triggered it but if I were you I would just keep taking out the battery and unplugging/replugging the phone into the charger, and pressing and holding the power button until it turns on.

My storm battery icon was yellow then went to all red. I have it turned off and charging right now and indicator light is blinking greenish red? Is there a problem or does it just need charged


Battery icon goes yellow when charge is low, red when about to go off, yes, that's OK. Recommend give it more time after all the bars are full-white, to trickle more into the battery. Lithium batteries don't seem to like being flattenend and left flat in my experience.

The light blinks for all sorts of things, might also have pending messages, etc. Can use the Storm OK while it's charging, just hold down red button to turn it on again.

After turning on, sometimes the cellular receiver does not turn on until battery is more charged. Wait 10 mins and then try to make a phone call, you may get a message saying it's off, do you want to turn the receiver on - just say yes.

That should keep you going. Nice phone.

Red light on my bb storm when connected to macbook w/ no charge


ok, try this...
Go to (Options -> Memory : then make sure that "Mass Storage Mode Support" and "Media Card Support" is set to "On", and "Auto Enable Mass Storage Mode When Connected" is set to "Prompt".)

Connect to your computer.

Let me know if that works for you. If not we can try a couple other things.

Red led light is flashing while charging and it won't turn on


I just called Verizon Wireless who said that the phone may need to be charged completely for a few hours. Try taking the battery out and putting it back on as well.
