| | 8310 usb/charging
My wife recently recently purchased a phone charger from Wal-Mart for her curve 2 and it did the same thing exactly. She also plugged it into our Garmin Nuvi 765 and it did the same to that device. I have to send the Nuvi back to Garmin. There is a guy in San Francisco that will repair the USB for 40 Bucks as the same thing happent to a co-worker that bought a car charger from wallmart. With out the comp cable sync option I cannot back up her data to transfer to a new Blackberry, just the info on the SD Card. So frustrating.
Spent 1 hour and 15 on the phone with Garmin, tried 4 separate USB cables and it's the USB for sure.
Sucks cause we lost all our favorites, trips, ect.
I think the cause stems from the larger/smaller size of the walmart squishes the pins making all other USB adapters inoperable.
