Default 7100i won't charge, I think its dead!!!

Please Login to Remove!

Today I connected my 7100i to my pc through USB and noticed that it was not charging, when I disconnected and reconnected I notice that the lightening bolt would appear then disappear after about 2 seconds. I proceeded to try then wall and car charger and the same thing happens, the led turns yellow and then lightening bolt appears for about 2 seconds then disappears. What should I do? I just bough this about 4 months ago and it appears to already be dead. Will nextel fix this for me since it is still rather new?

Mine is doing the same thing, except it will charge with the USB connection. I've only had it for 3 weeks! The place I got it from said to take it to an authorized Nextel service center.

Hmm, that is interesting. Do I have to have the insurance for them to fix it, or is the hardware under some type of warranty? I really don't feel like buying a new phone.

i had this happen with a 7100t recently i pulled the battery for about 5 min and put it back in and viola started charging again. i wonder if there is some sort of surge sensor in the unit to prevent damage?

well after literally 4 hours on the phone (nextel and rim), and a visit to 3 nextel authorized repair centers my conclusion is....

my 930 should be here tomorrow.

I will not go through exactly what happened but I will never again touch a rim product.
