Default BB Shutdown

Please Login to Remove!

This is for all of you BB owners that use your phone as a modem with the USB cable. I am having a problem where the phone will shut down and the red light comes on and stays on. I then have to unplug the cable for it to restart and do the hole thing over again. Has anyone else run into this or is it just me.

Is the battery just running out, or is it just plain rebooting by itself? Could it be that your USB port is not charging the phone while connected? I don't use my phone as a modem, but during the time I tried it out on my laptop, I didn't experience any problems.

Sounds like the USB connector is loose if the phone is not rebooting. Sounds like you are just loosing the connection to the PC.
