Default OS Upgrade

Please Login to Remove!

Greatings to everyone here on the forums!

I am a brand new member, and after doing some reading around on the site here I have decided to join. But heres the catch. My greatings are not exactly on good terms. I poked around on the site here and found an OS Upgrade and decided to give it a shot. I downloaded the update (went from .65 to .76 for those who may be curious) and fallowed the instructions as noted in the thread I found. The update seemed to work fine. I made a backup and of everything on my phone, every single setting and such that was available under the advanced tab on the backup/restore portion of the desktop manager. So after the upgrade is all said and done, restart the phone only to find that I have lost the browser icon. ALSO, I cannot seem to get my PC to pick up the fact that my device is plugged into it. It used to be rather instantaneous. I plug the USB cord into the phone, and it popped up under my computer and showed up in the device manager. Rather disappointed at the moment : (

Anyways, has anyone experienced this? Any known fixes? Did I miss something?


Help?


Thanks for any help in advance for those who offer it.

To everyone else, greatings from Wyoming.

"Beta" you than me!

Go back to .75 and you should be ok.

How is that cold weather in Wyoming affecting your Storm? I had issues with mine when the screen got cold.

.76 may be for the 9500. Verizon uses .75. The latest "beta" is .99 which I use and its so far very stable. To obtain your browser icon back, go into options>advanced options>
host routing table>hit menu button and click on register now. You may need to reboot. Also call *228 and hit option 1 to reprogram the phone with Verizon. When completed, call agaon and hit option 2 to reprogram the roaming. You should be all set. Also make sure you set up your email setting with BB if not done already.

Its really not too bad as long as you dont let the phone sit out in the cold weather for long periods of time. I try to keep mine in my pocket or in my coat pocket at all times unless im using it so it can be kept warm from my body heat. There have been a number of occasions where its WELL below zero outside and i need to make a phonecall/txt and I've had zero problems.
I just am conscious and aware of the suggested operating temps for the phone so I do my best to keep it that way.

interesting question by the way.

ECS,

Last weekend I stored my phone in a front shirt pocket and it was exposed to 28-33 degree weather all night. Eventually the screen would not respond to thumbing. It wasn't until I warmed up the Storm by a heater vent that the screen began slowly functioning from the center outward. The edges remained unresponsive for some time.

I've spoken to one other member whose screen actually wouldn't click at all when it got cold.

I thought my unit was ruined but after long exposure to warmth, the Storm screen sensitivity returned begining at the center and emanating outward.

Interesting, I have had mine out for a couple minutes to fire off a txt or place a call when like I stated previously, temps were well below zero. I keep mine bundled up pretty tight in my coat / pants somewhere so my body heat keeps it warm. I have to when I work outside all the time in subzero weather high atop radio towers and such.

.76 works fine on the 9530, I had it on mine for a few weeks before I went to .86 a while back. In fact, .76 seemed to have 1 or 2 issues less than .75 as I recall.

.76 was released by Bell for the 9530, so it is a "legit" OS version. It's also stickied here at the top of the forum.

ECS, I would guess that bundling has kept your Storm happier.

If that screen ever gets exposed to cold for extended periods you will find out what I am talking about.

I was discussing this issue with a fellow Storm owner at work last night and she encountered the same issue while up north visiting family. She left her Storm in the car over night and thought the cold had ruined it. But the phone began functioning again after being warmed with her hair dryer.
