Someone knows why this might be happening?


It's possible what your seeing is the start of the USB port breaking. This was very common with the 8800, mine as well, and from investigating I've noticed that a lot of USB chargers pull on the port in one direction or another causing stress on the solder points by the extra weight the ends exert on it. The traditional USB cable for data connections are small and light but for some reason the chargers have thicker ends or bulkier cables. To compound the issue most of us use a cradle to hold the Blackberry at eye level while traveling and like most cars the Power Outlet is below thus gravity is pulling against the cable and thus the port downward.
This is only my opinion.
