Default Help - Wireless Radio Turns Off Randomly on Storm

Please Login to Remove!

My wife has a storm and everyday her wireless connections "turn off". She has to turn is on and it is very frustrating.

Is this a Storm only problem ? OS problem ?

Any ideas ?

I've read all the issues with Verizon and the OS .75 - Which my wife has...

I'm thinking of putting a leaked OS on it because of the forums here and others that say, VZW will never release a new version soon.

I appreciate any advice in advance, Kev

I think your wife should install a new OS, and since you're talking about Verizon I assume she has a 9530, and from what I've read the .132 is the best OS, but you should ask these guys which is the most stable release.

Wow, I thought I was the only one! So I'm not crazy. This happened to me all the way through .132

I was just about to return it and I gave.148 a try and it has worked so far but it's only been two days.

As a note the problem only happened with .132 when I rebooted the phone. The connectivity would come back about 50% of the time and it was completely random.

Best of luck but I agree with the above poster, try an upgrade and if you have any questions about how post here. These guys are good!
