We are developing a simple web application targeted for the BB Storm 9530 for Verizon, running 4.7 software. Our home page contains a button bar composed of 8 images in a 2x4 grid. The first 4 images render properly in the BlackBerry internet browser, however all images after the first 4 render as broken images.
The symptom occurs on an actual BB Storm on Verizon service. I can replicate it on a BB Pearl on AT&T service. It does not occur in the BB Storm 9530 emulator, desktop browsers (IE, FireFox, Chrome, Safari) or the iPhone Safari browser.
There are 10 images between 1-13 Kb in size, total of 42 Kb in images, on page. The total page load is 69 Kb, including HTML, images, CSS and scripts.
Any known issues with displaying a number of images on a page with the BB browser? Any issues with upper limits on page or image size?
Any help is greatly appreciated.

I found some HTML 4 validation issues with our page source. I'll make some corrections and retest.
We've dumped the cache several times with no luck. I'll also try a battery pull. I have doubts whether that will bear fruit since we are seeing the same issue on several different BlackBerries.

We had a workaround that worked for us in that we could combine 8 of our images into one and apply an imagemap; however, that has left us with other challenges such as an inability to swap out active vs inactive images.
The problem does not manifest with the BlackBerry Verison 9530 simulator. Only on an actual BlackBerry 9530 on Verizon service. I see similar issues with a BlackBerry Pearl on AT&T service. Both devices are on BlackBerry 4.7 software.
