Did you use the OEM charger that came with the Pearl? It doesn't sound like hardware to me if you can charge it from another source.
The outlet was hot. I used the OEM charger that came with the phone, one I had laying around from an earlier BB (7130), and mine (for my Curve). I did try two different outlets actually; I was remembering incorrectly that I tried my phone on her outlet. I didn't. I tried her phone on my outlet and it didn't charge on either mine or hers.
She says the battery seems to be charged after some time on the laptop.
I'll play around with it again when I get home. I just can't think of a reason it would do that.
Thanks for your help.
