Default The Storm 2 is a piece of @#$%.

Please Login to Remove!

My blackberry storm 2 just broke outta nowhere. The end button won't push down so I can't end calls. I have had nothing but problems with it. It gets scratched and dirty easily. I might sell the replacement I got and get a curve again who else has had issues with the **** storm 2.

There's a lot of people who really enjoy this device, it may not be the device for you.

Interesting. It gets scratched? The glass does? There are videos of how scratch resistant the glass is. I don't keep my BB near sharp objects such as knives or keys so it doesn't get scratched.

It gets dirty? From when you're talking on it, or typing on it? I would guess that dirt is being transferred from your face/hands.

I would say the issue is not the device but the user.

I scratched the screen of my old 8520, but that was from dropping it on rocky gravel outside my house.

I was just going to say rocks, but then I started thinking about it too much, because it's a gravel driveway, so I just said rocky gravel haha. The rocks are bigger than normal gravel I guess would be the best way to say it.

Off Subject, but ..................

I just got a 9630 Tour, how do I get more money for the Texs Hold'em King 2 Game?
I went through two piles of chips, $500 each and now I have 0. Can I replenish my chips?

thanks ...

Welcome to the forums.

It is not good to hijack a thread. It is bad forum etiquette (see: Forum Etiquette)

To answer your question, from the main screen, there should be a Reset Bankroll option.

Next time, learn to win a few hands and you won't have to worry about that

Best threadcrap this year. I bet even Lunkhead would shake his head and roll his eyes.

I am not a dirty person and this device is just a piece of garbage. And now I can't switch back to curve till summer. I am really pissed about how horrible the storm 2 really is. And btw why isn't cursin allowed on forums. I feel like that should be covered under freedom of speech.

Again, the screen doesn't scratch easily, and how is it getting dirty? Where's the dirt coming from?

Also, why isn't cursing allowed on TV? There's freedom of speech, but that doesn't mean to abuse the freedom. This is a family friendly forum. They are the rules and you need to learn to follow them. If you don't like the rules, you have the freedom of choice. That would be the choice to post elsewhere.

I went through 2 storm 2's in the space of a couple of weeks, touchscreen wouldnt press down. Wouldnt use WIFI at home as it kept reverting to GPRS the list goes on.
However i got both of mine form the same store and maybe it was just a bad batch of phones. I swapped mine out for the Bold 9700 and couldnt be happier!!

Far be it for a Canadian to lecture an American on their own Constitution, but the 1st Amendment only limits the Feeral gov. from impeding freedom a speech.

Because you're acting like a 14 year old brat.
And, you've never read or know anything about freedom of speech.
