Unhappy Battery is not working!

Please Login to Remove!

Hi All,

I have a huge problem. I bought my Curve 8900 a couple of months ago so its brand new. The phone does not seem to be charging...it charges for like 3 seconds and then stops. Is it possibly the fact that I have bought a new car charger?????

Thank you so much for the reply!

Yes, I will try what yo suggested. I am worried that the car charger might have ruined my battery. This only happened after using the car charger. Thank you so much! Will give it a try now...

If is the battery, its a cheap solution. Also remember that these batteries like to be topped off. Don't drain them to the end. This is a different philosophy than with an electric razor or toothbrush.

Yup, i read about these batteries. They should not be drained out. Can the problem possibly be because i use a non-BB car charger? Its unbranded.
