Default recent charging issue with VZW storm

Please Login to Remove!

i thought it was only when i was using the VZW navigator that it wouldnt charge but now it seems to be intermittent while on the USB charger connected to the laptop as well.

no arrow showing charging and appears not to be

anyone have any ideas or fixes for this ?

i tried a battery pull, tried a different USB cable, different USB port, different car charger and changed out to my OEM battery, same results.

I had this problem. VZW tech support couldn't figure it out. I ultimately had to replace it.

I've had similar problems w/mine. And this morning I woke up and the phone indicated it was fully charged, but now I can't get it to turn on. I've tried pulling the battery & cleaning the sensors, but I still can't get it to turn on. About to head to VZ store and let them figure it out.

Nevermind, I'm an idiot...It showed that the battery had died, even though it sat on the wall charger all night. Still, there is something wrong w/that scenario too!

Had the same problem, would drop mine into the USB cradle, and no charging indicator would come on, or it would do so for few seconds then go away. I changed the USB port I was using, not sure why that would matter but it fixed the problem. I have gone back to the "original" USB port and no further problems.

the guy at VZW said RIM knew about the issue. he replaced the battery under warranty and told me when the new OS gets released the issue will be fixed.

said its the RIM product issue log ITEM # RI167

hope this helps someone
