HomeScreen Options Won't Show-Up Again...

I've had this problem since I got my BlackBerry Storm.


Every time I go into the HomeScreen options, I save new settings and the HomeScreen Options cannot be accessed without having to do a "Battery Pull" - why is that?


Is there a fix for this?

I don't know the 'why'.


But on your homescreen, press Menu > Options. There is nothing there? What menu items are there?

I press "Options" and nothing advances.

Hi! I'll weigh in...


From the homescreen, there are two "options"...which one are you having trouble with?


1) Press the BB key (the hard key to the right of the green phone key) and select Options.




2) Click the Options icon on the homescreen.


In any event, the first thing to try (IMHO) will be a battery-pop reboot -- with power ON, remove the back cover and pull out the battery. Wait about a minute and replace the battery and cover. Power up and wait patiently through the long long long reboot process (perhaps as long as 10 minutes). See if things act normally again.

Occam's Razor nearly always applies when troubleshooting technology issues!

More info on your problem.  I had the same thing but a random battery pull fixed it.
