Default Charging Issues

Please Login to Remove!

Switched from nextel to At&t. Got the pearl for $50. Good deal right? Well... I immediately started having issues with recharging. I would plug the phone in with the included 120v charger. The little plug would appear next to the charge status. About a minute later the plug would dissappear and then no matter what charger I used, the phone would not charge. I have a usb cable, a car charger and the mentioned 120v charger. Nothing would work. After the charge was completely depleted, I could the charge using any of the three methods. The phone would reboot and then function normally for a few days and the the issue would arise again. Seems to be completely random intervals. I went to my dealer and got a new phone. Everything was grand when it started again. I had a different event a few days ago when the phone would not charge even when completely drained. The red light would come on for about fifteen seconds then shut off and no other signs of life presented themselves. After about eight hours of randomly trying to charge the phone it just up and decided to charge. As I sit here typing this thread I am unable to charge the phone again.

Any ideas?

It appears that you have tried different chargers and phones, have you treid a different battery?
