    I have only had my storm for about a month, so i'm still learning what all it does. I do however have a question about the video camera. Everytime I try to video something it stops after about 15 seconds and the phone freezes up, what can I do to fix that? As a matter of fact the phone likes to freeze up atleast three times a day just because. The only way I can get it back to normal is take the cover off and pull the battery for a second. Is there any way to clean this thing up?

    this used to happen to me alot, but i've found that fully closing out apps after using them helps big time!

    Download "Quick Pull", so you don't have to keep pulling your battery out. This works much better. My has frozen up as well. I downloaded os.113 and now os.132 and haven't had that problem again. (Both are leaked versions)

    It was doing the same thing for me while I was running OS .75. I upgraded to the leaked .113 and it hardly ever freezes. I use up just about every application and never properly close it and it still manages to work. I only pull the batter out and reboot it when it begins to get laggy.

    - just download a different OS it will help a whole lot with your situation.

    friends, dont let friends use original os


    you can find help right here!

    goto the OS forum in the STORM forum, there are tons of guides stickied at the top, read up, go nuts. You'll be VERY glad you did.

    PUt it this way, if I was still on .75, i would not still have this phone.

    if you get the new os do you have to reinstall anything and if you dont like it can you go back to the old os easily
