    Used phone... could be the main reason someone sold the phone.

    First, use DM to backup the phone if possible... that is if you have anything on it you really need... next, download and install an OS version on your PC... next, download and install CrackMem on your PC (the link is below in my signature)... start CrackMem, select the OS version, verify it, click the Wipe button... this will Wipe your device and load the OS... you will need to go through all the start up procedures on the device, but it's pretty easy... next you might need to resend your service books... after that you should have a fully functioning device.

    as for you JROD.. you're obviously an airhead... i probably know a lot more about blackberries than you ever will... you're probably a first time user who has a hand me down curve 83xx... ive been a bb user even b4 you were in diapers.. so take a chill pill and take your cat fetish somewhere else... btw i use my storm 2 as my everyday phone moron...

    It's a hardware issue and requires the device be exchanged under the 1 year warranty.

    what if the phone was only used for 2 months before i got it. is there any way to fix it without exchanging it?

    Carrier is absolutely right. This was an issue with some of the 8900's when they came out and was never resolved. Only option is to get it replaced under warranty, but at this point in 2012 when the phone was made a few years back you're likely SOL.

    Sorry
