Sorry for all of the questions -- I'm just confused.
No problem man - I couldn't tell from your first post if you had the LED setting to be ON.

When the BB is on, you will only see the LED be green or red, depending on if you have a message or not (green = no messages and receiving signal, red = message). Thus, if you plug it in while its powered up, you really can't tell its charging just by looking at the LED.

However, if you turn OFF the BB and then start charging, the LED will turn white/yellow and pulsate (and I think it might turn a consistent green when its fully charged, or maybe yellow, I don't remember).

Does this make sense?
