The past 2 months or so, My BB Storm2 has been messing up. When i take photo's (or any media file), it says "File system out of resources" and will not save. I cannot recieve media files via BBM or MMS. (Says "Incoming file transfer canceled. Your built-in media storage and media card are full." -- Which they are both empty/formatted)
After a while of this error occuring, my phone calls (outgoing and incoming) stop going through. Will just beep beep beep.
Pulling the battery fixes the problem from anywhere to a few hours to a few days.
I have done a full system restore, and it seemed fine for about a week, now problem has returned. The only "apps" i have on my phone is FB and a downloaded Theme.
It's quite the nuesance and i haven't found a fix online

Hi and Welcome to the Community!
Yes, that does indeed sound like a nuisance...so I suggest some things you did not mention...starting with a clean OS reload. Please prepare by reviewing/conducting a full backup...you can find complete instructions via the link in my auto-sig on this post.
Please refer to this official download portal as you proceed. It is sorted first by carrier -- so if all you want are the OS levels your carrier supports, your search will be quick. However, some carriers are much slower than others to release updates. To truly seek out the most up-to-date OS package for your BB, you must dig through and find all carriers that support your specific model BB, and then compare the OS levels that they support.
From a PC, you can install any compatible (e.g., for your exact BB Model Number) OS package to a BB via this procedure:
Note that while written for "reload" and the Storm, it can be used to upgrade, downgrade, or reload any BB device model -- it all depends on the OS package you download and install to your PC. After installing the OS package to your PC, please remeber to delete, on your PC, all copies of VENDOR.XML...there will be at least one, and perhaps 2, and they will be located in or similarly to (it changes based on your Windows version) these folders:
Be sure that you remove, from your PC, any other BB device OS packages as having more than one installed to the PC can cause conflicts with this procedure.
You may also want to investigate the use of BBSAK (bbsak.org) to perform the wipe it is capable of.
You may also want to try the "Bare Bones OS Reload Procedure" to attempt to narrow down the precise causal item:
When the behavior presents, you know the culprit...the last thing you loaded.
If the behavior does not re-present, then you know that either step 1 or 2 cured it.
If the behavior presents no matter what, then you likely have a hardware level issue for which no amount of OS or software can cure.
You may also need the use of these tricks:
If you are on MAC, you are limited to only your carriers sanctioned OS packages...but can still use any levels that they currently sanction. See this procedure:
Good luck and let us know!
