Angry Storm Won't Play Nice

Please Login to Remove!

I have a BlackBerry Storm and I've had it for about a year now. I haven't really had any issues with it until lately. For the last month or so, when I am using BBM, sometimes SMS texting, or while using some of my apps, my phone will reset. It doesn't matter how full the battery is, seems to get worse when its below 4/5 bars. The phone won't power back up until its plugged in. It will just continue to reset itself getting to various points, with either the clock or the status bar, and the reset again. It works totally fine occasionally and when plugged in. Is my battery toast or is it more in depth than that?

The very first thing you should do is backup your data. Then try a new battery.

I would suspect a bad battery, but you definitely need to do a backup, then get a new battery.

And apparently I repeated exactly what devnull just said. Oops.

Bad batteries masquerade as an entire host of problems. Frustrating because you don't often get a clear warning that the battery is going bad.
