Unhappy Pearl doesn't charge

Please Login to Remove!

My Blackberry Pearl doesn't seem to charge. I've had the phone for 2 months, today is the first time this happened. When I plug it into either the wall charger or to my plugged-in laptop, I see the lightning bolt for a couple of seconds which then disappears. The battery continues to die, amber light flashing when it's on, and nothing flashing when it's off, even though it's plugged in. Also, when plugged into my laptop, desktop manager says the device is disconnected. It seems like this spells doom. I'm keeping it off right now. Any suggestions as to what's going on?

Sounds like maybe the usb port is bad or has a bent pin.

Yes 5 is the correct # of pins!
