Unhappy Dud Phone ?

Please Login to Remove!

As some know iv moved from o2 to vodaphone with the new storm.

I have found a problem with my device as i think vodaphone already knew because it was there last one in stock

Basically my phone shuts down and i have to take the battery out to reset it then switch it back on.

Im still in my 14 day return is it worth me exchanging it ? or is it something im doing

Thanks guys.

If it just shuts down, i.e. you are doing nothing (BB idle and not set to auto-off) AND you have to do a battery pull for a restart.... swap it. Before your 14 days are up.

Sorry to hear about your luck with your new Storm. Hopefully they will have another in stock that functions correctly.

Just a update, i went into the bright and wonderful vodaphone shop.

Got a straight replacement. Forgot to give them my charger and USB so now i got 2 of the cables ;P

Oh and i found that there was nothing wrong with the phone itself, it was my 2gb mem card. Was wacking it out.

So new phone for nothing, oh and i ordered a nice 8gb card

As far as I know, it is only Verizon in the USA that is selling Storm's with an 8GB memory card.

Must be just a Verizon issue I didn't know that either. Call up Voda Phone and double check or just look at your contents list inside the box it came in.

Just a lil update. I phoned Voda customer services and 'blagged' them that my friends all recieved a 8gb card. He told me to go into the branch and get one.

I went up for laugh same day, and they told me no problem gave me the 8gb card.

Now to get my hands on a desktop holder :p haha.
