    I remember a similar case when my friend dropped an 8310 and it did the same thing over and over again. We had to take that for repairs. It usually turned off when you are retrieving your email or browsing. If its the same thing you might need to have it repaired.

    "IF" you want to replace it, I have a 8830WE from VZW that I retired for my Storm.
    PM me for details if you want.

    Hopefully it will fix itself?

    Thanks, rajafaran, it is doing the same thing as your friend's 8310. it will come on and go off as i am ansering a call, email it even shut off during a call once or twice. SVT Cobra, thanks for the offer, but i am waiting for the alltel/verizon merger to completely take place where i can too get a storm. I appreciate the offer and the help guys, thanks a million, Bigg-p

    May not do much good but have you tried a different battery? Sounds like an issue someone a while back had and a new battery solved it for them. Might give it a try just for fun.

    Thanks moderncowboy. I took it into the alltel store. The guy tried everything and couldn't get it to come back on. They just did a insurance claim and I got a new one! Thanks again to all, biggp

    that would only happen to mine after the wife dropped it while it was plugged in, and messed up the mini-usb cable and plug. so now when it was plugged in and i answer a call, it would die. I sold it cheap and waiting for another BB to come out that i would upgrade to.
