BlackBerry Curve Charger
 
Ok, I can't seem to find my BB Charger for the life of me, however I still have the charger from my Razr, and it seems to fit fine with the BB. Will it hurt anything to use the Razr charger? :?

I wouldn't, unless you knew the voltage was the same. You would be better off using a USB cable and charging it off your computer.

Ok, thanks for the heads up Argon :)

Heres another question maybe you or someone else could help me with. The Charger that came with my Blackberry Curve 8310 has a voltage of input:110V-240V output: 5V-12V, and the charger does not say Blackberry on it at all, but I have been using it to charge up my curve for the past week. However I realized I still have my charger from my Pearl 8100, which it does say BlackBerry on it, only it has Input: 100-240v Output-5v=0.75a. I take it I cannot use the actual Blackberry Charger for my Curve right?

FYI: We were told by RIM USB Charging is also apt to not give you the same battery performance as the wall charger. It can show 100% battery but can actually affect battery performance with prolonged use.

I've been known to use my old Razr chargers in a pinch - however - I would only do so if it's an emergency and only at your own (the phone's) risk. The input is virtually the same on both (100-240V, 50/60 Hz) but the output varies slightly, 5 vdc 550ma on the Razr (moto) charger and 5 vdc .7ma on the BB.

When in doubt always check to specs. Try to find your BB charger or just buy a new one. You'll find both the charger and the phone get hot to the touch when you use a mismatched charger. Not a good long-term thing.
