Unhappy BlackBerry won't charge while turned ON - Help?

Please Login to Remove!

Got my first BlackBerry yesterday and I'm loving it so far, except for the fact that it won't charge the battery while turned on. I've tried a wall charger and my USB on my laptop - each time, when I plug the phone in and it is turned on, nothing changes. If I turn it off then plug it in, the green light blinks and stays lit when the phone is fully charged.

Any ideas?
Still figuring out how to use my 8330 from Verizon

When it is fully charged and on it will not show anything. When it is off and charging you will see a blinking light. After using your BB for a while try again and you will see a charging icon next to the battery indicator.
