I have a charging issue, The bolt icon does not want to consistantly appear when I have my BB hooked up to any of 3 charging devices, ie car, wall, or pc.
Sometimes if I power off and remove the battery , then hook up to pc usb and reboot the bb it will show the bolt icon and charge but if I try and use the bb the icon goes away. Also tonight it appears to be charging while hooked up to my pc even though the bolt icon is not apparent.
Does anyone know if the bolt icon has to display in order for the bb to charge?
Do the connection terminals get dirty or corroded and require cleaning? The unit has only been used for 5 months.
bybezg, i have had this problem with 8830 MORE then once and have had to switch out the phone. Does your mini usb also not STAY in the phone at this point? does it kind of just come out easily and not stick in there like it used to?
This has happened on 3 8830's to me, and i just got off the phone YELLING at verizon (and asurion...for many reasons) and they are sending me a new one now because of this issue.
God help me, if the bberry thunder isnt as good as it looks, its goodbye verison and hello iphone 3g for me.... :(
