Default pearl 8130 not charging or connecting but USB port is not bad

Please Login to Remove!

3 days ago my blackberry pearl 8130 (purchased new nov 2008) ceased to charge or connect to the computer.
-have tried pulling battery
-have attempted with 4 other batteries, 2 verified good while in another phone
-have restarted computer (still does not see phone, even as USB peripheral)
-have used several cables and wall chargers
-have reinstalled DM6 (does not see phone)
-have installed java command prompt (does not see phone with any command)
-have installed verizon apploader (does not see phone)
-when battery is pulled and plugged in screen shows battery icon with cross
-when plugged in and on will show charging icon for 1-2 seconds then will not charge
-when plugged in while off will flash green charging light twice then stop
-can connect bluetooth
-the first day i got it to charge 3 times (charging icon stayed on screen and battery did infact charge), apparently randomly, but since then is completely unresponsive to USB connection (again - either wall or computer)

What are my next steps? I can only think to try cradle (on order, arrive 2-3 days) or spanking new battery (on order 2-3 days)

Can i reinstall blackberry OS from the phone itself?
Has anyone else seen an issue like this?

I have had this issue. It is a loose terminal in the USB port that provides power or the diode is bad. You can fix it with a cradle, repairing the phone internally is not cost effective.

You could always use Google to sync calendar and contacts wirelessly with a BB data plan.
