Well.. I posted last night on how the new Theme I'd purchased from Excelite(sp?) or whatever.. the people who do iBerry and stuff for $6.99 .. had been causing me lockups, slow accelerometer, resets..
Today.. about a hour or two ago I pulled my Storm from its case to check it and I noticed it was frozen with the spinning hourglass in the center.. then went to the white screen with the tiny reset box/message.. and powered off all by itself.. (Side note: I can't hoenstly say it's the theme causing this problem.. I'm also running the leaked .109 OS since it was leaked but haven't had issues like this ..)
Now, for the past hour or two, this is all it's been doing: white screen, hourglass, powers off with reset message.. repeat.. black screen red solid light.. white screen, hourglass.. time passes.. reset and powers off again.. repeat..
I've tried probably 20 battery pulls.. and nothing is working.. Tried yanking the SIM card and 8gig SD card as well .. Is this Storm foo'bar'd now and I need to walk up the street to the VZW store and get it replaced? I bought it at Best Buy for $530 cash a month or two ago.. since I wasn't yet eligible for a VZW upgrade.. Not sure what to try to get this phone working.. ugh ... Will the VZW store even look at it since it was bought from Best Buy or do I just call the online VZW suppot number and ask them about it and not mention Best Buy? Any ideas?

Do you know if your battery has a minimum charge? If unsure, charge for at least an hour and then try powering up again (and perhaps yet another batt-pop).

Battery's fine... was on the phone with VZW level 2 tech guy for the last 20 minutes trying all kinds of stuff.. Seems the device tosses some Error Code 34 [RESET] as it loops every time.. It's so fast though I can't read the error code # ... but he gave up and is shipping me FedEx overnight Storm #3 .... If this one goes bad... he said after a 3rd replacement within 90 days I can pick something else.. which might be the HTC Touch Pro
