Default 8330 Charging issue....

Please Login to Remove!

I left the charger for my Curve 8330 in a hotel room so I've just been using my car charger for the last couple days. I went to Wal-Mart and bought a generic wall charger. It wouldn't change my phone though! So i returned it and bought a "Rocket Fish" charger from Best Buy and on the back they have listed "8300" and "Curve Bold" but not the "8330" specifically. Still wouldn't charge it! I don't think it's a problem with my phone cause it charges with my car charger.

Is there a specific one for the 8330? Or is it something with my phone?

Probably doesn't meet the specs for the 8330. Go to a Sprint store and see if they have one. Have you tried charging via USB to the PC? Does that work?

You might need to check the voltage levels on the car charger versus the "Rocketfish" Charger. There might just be a difference, even though the plugs are the same. Also check this post BlackBerry Curve Charger for more information ...

Default Charging cable

Check out the CSQUID on amazon. I got one apple version for my wife and kids since they have an iphone and ipad and one non-apple version for myself (Blackberry and camera).

Amazon.com: csquid

This is now the only cable i go around with...dont even bother with the wall adapter...

good luck
