i have a storm and was in an area that had no service so i turned the phone off so it wouldn't wear itself down. when i got back to an area with service i turned the phone back on but it says the radio is off and i can't seem to get it to turn back on. i went into manage connections and tried to turn on the connections but had no luck. can anyone help
