    Possible issue #1: Dead battery

    Possible Solution: Connect device to the charger and let charge for an hour. Then try a battery pull.

    Leave the battery out of your phone, then plug it in and you should be able to get it to connect using app loader.

    Be patient with it. Do not disconnect the device from the PC until you get the screen that says your installation is complete.

    How dumb ---

    I was just looking to switch to Verizon for some 3G action on my Storm -- but wow, they are kinda expensive.

    I pay 97.00 a month after taxes I get unlimited minutes, texts and data with TMobile ---- I had the 600 min 5 fav friends plan and then they gave me the unlimited mitues plan for nothing extra cause I have been with them ove 3 yrs!

    Its 35 bux for unlimited text and data on tmobile and 49 bux on Verizon -- I just cant justify the switch to verizon --- I'd be paying at least 60 bux more a month for what I would need (after taxes)

    But yes, I do suffer with the EDGE on the Storm -- but money talks --- :laugh2::laugh2:

    Its not like the extra 60 bux would break me...its jut NOT worth it --- over 700 extra bux a year to have quicker internet on my phone??? Um...no.

    There has got to me a way to get a Storm to use the frequency that Tmo uses for their 3g network....there has to be!

    I challenge all hackers and programmers!!!!

    Does the Storm work on AT&T 3g network? hmm mfg:mfg:

    What kinda data plan are you talking aboutmfg:?? I pay 30 for mine on VZW!

    I switched from T-Mobile to VZW back in November after being with T-Mobile for 6 years and I never looked back. Not that T-Mobile was bad, but VZW is just all around better. I had the 900 min. per month deal with VZW but then found I really didn't need that much because EVERYONE AND THEIR GRANDMA uses VZW too - VZW to VZW is FREE. I seriously went from using about 800+ per month (excluding nights and weekends) on TMO to about 200 - 250 tops with VZW because 85% of my calls are free. More people than you realize have VZW so you may want to consider switching.

    I would swing by a VZW store to find out what it would really cost for you because I doubt you would need as many minutes as you have now and the data plan is def. not 50$
