| | Storm 9530 reboots with micro SD card
Please Login to Remove!
I bought a Verizon branded (but unlocked) Blackberry Storm 9530 off ebay USA. The phone is to be used in India on a Tata Docomo GSM network.
Currently it's running an O.S. v126.96.36.1998 (Platform 188.8.131.52)
I noticed that right from the time it has been with me, it starts rebooting every few minutes.
I did a "security wipe" of E-mails, contacts etc, user installed applications, from the "Options - Security options - security wipe" menu.
Phone worked OK for some time then again started the reboot sequence.
So after browsing through some websites, I thought it is best to downgrade the O.S. I down graded the O.S. to 4.7 Bundle 203 (v184.108.40.206, Platform 220.127.116.11).
It worked for a half a day but then again back to square one!
Hence I re-upgraded to O.S. v18.104.22.1688(Platform 22.214.171.124).
This time around I worked on the bare phone! thinking that some of the apps may be the culprits, before up-gradation, I removed all apps. and then upgraded. I took care to remove all 3rd party apps.
Every time I tried using files from my micro-SD media card (for eg. using a pic as a wall paper, etc), the phone would go in a white screen error (which I couldn't read as it went away before I could read it) and reboot.
I changed from Transcend 8 GB class to to Kingston 4 GB class 4 micro-SD card with the thought that I might be culprit, but after giving some false hope the storm disappointed me!
Now it has been a day I've been using the Storm 9530 without a micro-SD card, and touch wood, it seems to be working fine.
NOW the main problem: HOW DO I GET MY BLACKBERRY STORM 9530 TO WORK NORMALLY EVEN WITH A MICRO SD CARD?
Can anyone help me please?
