I had a very similar problem.  My BlackBerry went hot, froze in function, and did similar to what you are describing.  The end result was a useless external memory card and a working Storm2.


The problem has never happened again, and I did update my device to the latest Storm2 OS 5.0.713


The rules that I follow now are:

1. Often run Memory Cleaner that is built into BlackBerry OS ... found in Options > Security Options > Advanced Security Options > Memory Cleaning ... there is a Show Icon on Home Screen Option... I put this to Yes... the Status Option I have as Enabled... and the other options are marked No.

2.  Know your Storm2 memory bubbles.  With 102MB free.. Storm2 runs extremely quickly, with 92MB free.. Storm2 runs fine... with 82MB free.. Storm2 runs a tad sluggish.  Try not to go below 80MB free to prevent problems.

You can see this through the Options > Memory or in App World when you run it and go to My World in App World... in the upper right side.

3.  Don't be afraid of deleting pay-for-apps installed by your phone company that you don't need and won't use.

4.  Get a memory monitor like Brio Memory Guard in App World.  You want a memory program that is 99K or less.


... also... when you plug the phone into your computer... there are two memories that become like drives... one that is near 2GB in the phone, and the other that is the external memory card... which could be as high as 16GB.  When putting things from the computer onto your Storm2, such as podcasts, put them into the external memory card.



Oh right... getting your phone to work again... if your phone is plugged in, unplug it, pull the battery case, pull the battery out, then pull out the memory card on the lower right side, then put back the battery, close the case... and your phone should work.
