Did a few searches on the forums here, couldn't come up with much for an overview of the Blackberry, so I'll start a thread. Maybe some of you can throw me some links.
This is actually my nieces phone. I have an Android, and know absolutely nothing about the Blackberry.
She has a Blackberry 9550, v188.8.131.525, Bundle 1656, Platform 184.108.40.2062, through Verizon.
Is this a storm or storm 2?
What's the difference?
Is it normal to take well over 5 minutes to reboot?
She's done almost nothing in the way of keeping her phone "in tune" for the past year since she's had it. Are there generally preferred apps or anything that can get this thing into shape?
When she's lacking a phone signal, her phone locks up. Is this a common, fixable issue?
ANY info or links you guys can give me will be much appreciated.
