I don't understand it. I have used Blackberry 7100t and when I charge it, it shows the charging symbol but it seems to only go to 90% even when I leave it plugged in overnight. is there somethimng wrong with the unit or is it a battery issue. When I turn it all the way off it flashes slow yellow but still does not charge to 100%. Someone please any answers would help.

What does the battery level show if you pop out the battery and put it back in. I've had a few BBs where the battery showed charging even when it really wasn't.

I discovered what the problem was. My usb cable was going bad because when I move it it charges and when I let it go the charging symbol goes away. I'll just go on Ebay and get one and see what happens. anyway thanks for the tip.

Here's a dumb question. What does the charging symbol look like?

I had a 5810 way back and I could never tell it was charging. I would actually have to turn it on and off to see a change in battery percentage. Now I've got the 7105t and well.....I guess it's charging b/c I see the battery meter filling up, but I'm used to some kind of blinking battery (on your run of the mill basic cell phones).

a lighting bolt appears in the battery symbol

Yeah, I have seen this as well.

Just curious, does this mean the problem is with the battery or the unit? I have a 7100V that from time to time shows the lightning bolt but actually discharges as if it wasn't plugged in. I had the unit on AC charge all last night and it went from 10% to 20%. I then plugged it into the car charger on the way to work, 30 minutes, and it charged no problem? This also happened a couple of months ago and I thought the charger was bad and then suddenly the charger worked fine again, go figure. Any ideas?
