    Almost three hours ago I started the update from .75 on my Verizon BB Storm. It did a backup thing for a few minutes. But after that it went to a black screen and the LED is blinking red. Should I just wait or is my phone bricked?

    How long ago did the screen go black? What had occurred is a normal part of the update process.

    Be patient. Likely, it's not bricked.

    Do you use a password to access your phone? If so, try swiping your finger across the screen and see if it is asking for a password.

    I'm assuming you are updating via the DM since it is backing up first?

    Has the update been downloaded yet? It downloads first (which allows the dl to be canceled during the update), backs up and then the screen usually goes black while it is reformatting and reverifying.

    I'm downloading OTA. The download is updated. It is still sitting at a completely dark screen with only a blinking red LED.

    Pressing buttons or the screen doesn't do anything. It's been about 8 hours now.

    You will need to read into these threads to fix your device...
