    I am a new BB owner and I truely understand that I have a lot to learn and understand about the BlackBerry way, but I am also a big tech geek so I am pretty quick to understand. So far I love the Storm, its capable of so much more then I expected and I havent let go of it since I got it day after Christmas took it home played a bit with it and within an hour I was installing the .83 from .75 with hopes it would solve issues that I had already knew about before I got it, and it did solve most and now I am running .85 a bit better all around, but still have bugs, and I am surprised how many were not fixed with the update, but hopefully in the very near future they will have it all nailed, but anyhow enough spatter, here are my issues so far:

    Sim Card Rejected - Get it all the time, even after Bat Pull

    Cant change anything on home page, i.e. number of rows, wallpaper, soon as I do I get constant box pop up that says changes were made do you want to Save, Discard, or Cancel, so if i hit save it freezes no response to screen, so then I hit hard key and get white screen 523 error... if i hit either discard or cancel then I just keep getting the box pop up. Another Bat Pull.

    Volume hard keys - they dont do anything, only thing I seen them do is change song while in music player....what about the volume?

    Verizon Splash Screen bug - Phone would work fine all day then without warning stop responding to anything, try to turn it off and get splash screen and nothing else. Yet another Bat Pull.

    Media Card Inserted - I get this when I turn phone on, dosent go away unless I turn to landscape, but when I go back to portrait its back as well. And again another Bat Pull.

    Screen Click - Not really a big issue but can be annoying, just not consistant, one side takes more pressure then the other to activate function.

    Again these are just my issues not complaints really cause I am sure the folks at RIM are working on them, otherwise I love my Storm and plan to keep it, it is by far the best phone I have owned....Feel free to post your issues, I am sure Im not the only one with them....Cheers to CrackBerry, love this place.

    Havn't got an idea

    [quote]Volume hard keys - they dont do anything, only thing I seen them do is change song while in music player....what about the volume?[quote]

    It seems to ME that the voluem only works if you are activly using something that needs the voluem changed (IE while in a call, Listening to music, ETC)

    For music I usualy lightly tap (as holding the button down selects the next track) volume down until i can't hear it anymore then tap back up to an acceptable level.

    I had this on .83 and honestly it occured right after I instaleld Vlingo. it went away after I remvoed it. taht said i instaleld Vlingo on .85 last night and have nad no problems.

    Media Card Inserted - I get this when I turn phone on, dosent go away unless I turn to landscape, but when I go back to portrait its back as well. And again another Bat Pull.
    There is some info on this in the OS sub forum. SOme folk have had sucess with moving their ringtones/wallpapers off the media card onto the device.

    On mine, if you press the volume toggle on the side for more than a second it changes tracks in the music/media player. But if you tap it (try not to hold it too long), it changes the volume up or down.

    I am also a new storm user and new to the CrackBerry community. Therefore, I appreciate your questions/issues. This is my first time logging in to my new account.

    My issue may be a BlackBerry issue or a website issue. When I tried to log on to CrackBerry.com, I had to log on using my PC because my storm would not allow me to log on... For some reason it would not allow me to type/enter in the Username or password. The cursor would not even show up in the text boxes. Help!!! I don't want to have to log on using my PC everytime I want to enter my account.
