Default Feeling the electric current while charging !?!

Please Login to Remove!

I had my Storm plugged into the computer while i was using it and i felt the electric current run through my fingers fromt he back of the device.

I put the phone down then tested if what i was feeling was actualy there.. so i picked it up again and yep. im pretty sure thats what i was feeling. I unplugged it and it went away.

I'm not sure... but I'm pretty confident it's not supposed to do this. I have a silicone cover on mine so I can't say whether mine does this or not, but you might want to get a replacement.

Do NOT take your BB into the shower with you. The steam from the shower will turn the moisture indicator under the battery cover red and your warranty is void.
