Default Charging issues USB-Yes, Wall-No

Please Login to Remove!

I have the 8330 for about 6 months now and the wall charger does not seem to be working. I have tried 2 different chargers and different outlets to eliminate the fact that I may have a defective charger or outlet. The funny part about this problem is that I now have the phone plugged into my USB and it is charging.

Why is the phone charging via USB but not the wall ???

If the USB port is broken why is this happening ???

Any suggestions ???

Thanks

I had this happen once on an 8703e and I had to pull the battery for about 30s for it to come back to normal charging life. Give that a shot. Barring that see if a bit of cable jiggling causes the charging to get back on track. If so, you might have some internal cable wear-and-tear you'll have to get addressed.

I am sure that you must be usin its original charger, as it was givin me the same problem wen i was usin charger other than what it came with phone. So I changed the charger back to original and it worked for me....so just try changin charger if you are not usin the original one...

Maybe you're using one of those USB 4 ports or something. Try plugging it in directly to the computer.

When i was at the store buying my curve someone came in with this problem. Three brand new chargers in various outlets would not work on his phone, even tho the reps was fine on them. Used the reps usb and worked great. Battery reset solved the issue.

I've actually had to run the battery almost all the way down before it charges through the wall outlet, the bad thing is my battery never seems to die.

I have the same issue and I always charge through USB. The problem is while travelling morethan a day out I am forced to carry my laptop (eventhough my official mails in blackberry)to charge the Handheld. Removing and replacing battery doesn't work for me.

Any expert advise

How about buying a charger with USB, so you can charge on the go?

On the other hand, i have no idea why it doesn't charge, i'm lacking experience in BB..

EDIT: I ment a charger with an USB port, so you can charge via the USB Cable, it just might work..
