This is a Java (OS) error and is usually caused by a application or possibly a file that is corrupted. Lets start with the easy stuff and see if we can get this corrected.

Try this first in this EXACT order!

Remove the battery from the phone and wait 20 seconds, then, with the battery still out, plug it into your wall charger, then place the battery back in and turn the phone back on.

You do that by downloading the Blackberry Desktop software if you don't already have it (see link below.) Then plug in your Blackberry, open up the software and go to "Device" and then down to "update my device." and see if there is a update available.

In case, if that would not help, you need to get the new phone. You could also call Verizon and see, if there is any recent update for your phone.

Let me know,if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

    Thanks for your response!!

    I understand the concern, however as you don't have any access to blackberry applications, unfortunately there is nothing you could do. The above error clearly states that the java system has been corrupted and needs replacement. I am sorry to convey this bad news that ' there is no fix for this problem ' unless all the applications are reinstalled which cannot be done at home. You might have to buy a new unit.

    I wish i could have a better news.

    Let me know,if needed further assistance.

    Hope i helped you.

I bought a blackberry storm 9530 on amazone. Its unlocked because i am in netherlands antilles and can make and receive calls and text messages but i cant browse the web or use BBM. I think Verizon has it...

Seems like your phone network is locked which needs to be unlocked. This can be done through Blackberry unlocking codes with IMEI. You can unlock your Blackberry Storm 9530 from them since they provide trusted and affordable codes to all their clients. i hope this would help.

I have blackberry storm flashed to cricket can not retrieve fwd fwd or pic messages but oi get regular text fine

Are you also having issues with your internet access on your device. I would contact your service provider. It maybe that there is a permission that has been changed and they would be the ones that would be able to change this.

I hope this answers your question.

I have a 9530. It is a verizon phone flashed to cricket. Since the flash the display has become erratic, sometimes half of it displays, then the buttons from last screen stay , buttons woulds smear, etc......

"flashing" the phone has no effect on your display. Sounds like 1 of 2 problems:
1) Your display is bad 2) Your midplate is bad
Check to see if they can help you

Downloading Text Messages on my Blackberry Storm

No, you can't do this. The BlackBerry stores your text messages in a database file that isn't compatible with anything other than itself. The only way to get your texts off of the device (in any kind of read-able format), is to forward them to another phone.
