OK... Now this is strange. My reset device function on QuickLaunch hasn't worked since I loaded .230, and I've tried it in numerous occasions. This morning I tried it again and it worked. I have changed nothing....zip…and it just started working !!! Bizarre...
Hi. For some reason my S9 headset will NOT control any functions other than volume(no forward, back, or pause). I tried several battery pulls. I even tried to delete the S9 under bluetooth options but when you hit the BB button, nothing happens. I also tried to add another device but it keep saying(reconnection in progress. Please try again later). Any advice OTHER than wipe and reinstall as i have to go thru a butt load of hoops to re activate my companys BES service. Thanks.
Ok so I am new to this site.....coming from another well known site....I've asked this question over there several times but can't seem to get an answer so I'm hoping someone here can help.....I can not send sms on 230.....if someone sends me a text I can reply to it but when I open a new text...it shows the person's name and a white screen....no where to type....when I try thru Beyond 160 it says it's sent but it doesn't show in my sms folder and the person I sent it to doesn't receive it.....I have never had this problem with any O.S/Hybrid I 've used....any help would be greatly appreciated....I love 230 but I need to text......Thanks

I was having frequent reboots and Bluetooth issues and that is all resolved now…
I was using BBCrackman 8.5, I backed up saved 3rd party apps (used BBSAK and DM) reset the phone, wiped the phone, removed the 4.7 operating system from control panel add remove programs.
Installed 191, then installed 230 on top, once from the original posted download, a second time BBCrackman file (NOINFOB2), and the third time was a charm with the last BBCrackman release (NoInfo1).
Every time during installations 1 and 2, the phone would restart for no reason, I could not get Bluetooth Sync to work in my car with the Microsoft Sync system. Each of the first two times I did a complete restore of all data from the backup.
The Third time I deleted Desktop Manager 5.x and removed the 5.x operating system from control panel, I deleted the folder c:\program files\common files\Research...
I reinstalled DM 500_b028; then I installed the 191 base removed the RIM tools through Control Panel, and then installed the BBCrackman NOINFO1. I did not reinstall any 3rd party apps. I did a backup restore, but only BBM, browser shortcuts, address book all, contacts all. I then used the phone to install my 3rd party apps, Smrtgurard which does not display properly, but does work; Patternlock; Poynt; Quicklaunch; Viigo and Where, I would have like to install MeterBerry but I understand that it does not work so have to wait on that app. No reboots, (other than the recommended 3 reboots prior to installing and data or 3rd party apps. I also used Shrink an OS, and I want to report strong signal phone works great. Since I did not do a complete restore from the backup file, I was able to re-create the Bluetooth Sync with my Car's bluetooth Microsoft Sync product and it works great.
Now my Storm is working the way I thought the storm would work,I have had the phone since December 2008, I am on my second phone.
I am sure that when the 5.xx is ready for release and the Hybrid-izers get their hands on it, well that will be really great.
Many thanks to BBOS and the great contributions from all the members.
to get my ql reset to work i had to delete the reset device option on ql that i restored from my old ql menu then go to to ql options and add the reset device back to my menu. it would not work when it was already there from my previous restore. hope that helps
I gues I'm not gonna get any answers here either.....oh well......:irked:
why can't i add or modify contacts?
Regarding various posts about issues with voice dialing, bluetooth, SMS texting, and QuickLaunch reset, I am using the .230 mix that Lyricidal put together and have not had any of those issues....I haven't tried the most recent revision of BBCM's .230....
the only issues I have had are those that have been referenced numerous times....no Facebook, Meterberry, or StopTilt....
I have encountered a strange quirk involving the dialpad on the phone....it involves trying to go to the dial pad in the middle of a call...noticed it when I was trying to do a *228 update and needed to hit the "1" or "2" in the middle of the call.....dialpad would not come up, was simply a blank white square on the bottom half of the screen below the current call #.....doesn't happen every time so not sure what's going on.....
If you cannot get answers to the above issues you might give Lyricidals' Mix a try. As we've all figured out, each of our Storms seem to react differently to the various hybrids and OS's, so try a few out to see what works....
Fallen, broken. Simply dissolved into an incomplete thought.
An empty shell, cracked, and disfigured. With no remorse,
I have been blinded by the darkness. With no disdain,
I have received my punishment. And with no haste, I await them.
