Default 7105T Recharging Question

Please Login to Remove!

I wore my battery down on my 7105T down to about 10%.

I took it home and plugged it into the AC.

The 'lightning' rod indicates briefly and then dissapears. It does not seem to be charging. Well it isnt charging. That I am sure of.

I tried the obvious. Another outlet. Reconnecting the wires.

I then tried recharging via the USB. that DOES work. So I have been charging via the USB and it is going on 8 hours and does not have a full charge.

This phone is less than 15 days old.

1. Should it take that long to charge a drained battery via the USB?

2. Why is the AC adaptor not holding the charge. It is working to an extent in that the lightning bolt shows up for 4 seconds and dissapears.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. I am sorry if this was asked already, I tried checking and didnt see this jump out.

Thanks!

I have the 7100t and my AC charger fully charges the device in 20-30 minutes. The USB route does take significantly longer and I rarely use it to purposely charge the device; eight hours sure sounds like too much time, though I'm not sure I've ever tried to charge from 10% on a USB connection. No reason it shouln't do it, but I can't say how long it would take or what the variables may be. Your lightning rod should not be disappearing. You better get into a T-M shop today before you get to day 16. Good luck.

Your AC charger sounds like it is defective. I would get to a T-Mobile store and exchange it.

I think you guys are correct. I had an older Blackberry AC and i plugged it in and it appears to be taking the charge.

I just find it strange it decided to stop working. Might have shorted out?
