| | Here's a solution, sorta...
What are you plugging the USB cable into? A computer? The Blackberry wall-wart AC adapter? (Mine was defective, I exchanged it at a T-Mobile store just last week after a similar experience.)
A computer must have the BB desktop manager installed in order for the USB cable to be able to supply a charge to the device, however there is a work around to that problem, and I've read about it here.
Do a more thorough search on these forums, and on PDA-Street and Howard Forums.
My solution was to purchase a cigarette lighter cable with the USB connector, and get one of those wall warts that has a female cigarette lighter receptable on it. One cable, dual location usage: In the car and in the house (or hotel).
I found this stuff at a cellphone equipment store in the airport, but they're available all over place.
