It turns out that I have an unbelievable number of chargers that, if not broken, at least appear incompatible with the Blackberry. 4 out of 6 chargers I had on hand did not work, including the OEM charger that came in the box with the 'berry. That really threw me off! The travel and car chargers that I had for my old XV6700 did not work. At this point I thought the phone itself was broken. I also bought a third party desktop charger from BlackberryDen.com that did not work.
What did work: my USB cable and another car charger. Hmmmm. I went down to the Verizon store and they swapped out my OEM Blackberry charger. Now that works.
So it appears that I now have a travel (OEM), car and USB charger that works. All I have to do now is see if BlackberryDen will replace the bad desktop unit.
Thanks to all who replied,
Hmmm I need to try this. Ive been having the same problem recently with the exact same phone. Its wierd because I've used only the charger that came with the bb.
This is not normal since verizon runs on a different data connection EVDO it probably trick the phone to act like its 75% full. All cellphone has a meter that is link to ahm on the battery. Example 1200ahm,1400ahm,1700ahm s the higher the number the more time it needs.

nope thats not normal. Get a new phone, hope you have insurance.
I have 8830 and unfortunately I am facing the same kind of problem with my blackberry. It used to get charged amazingly couple of days ago and now I have to connect it for hours to get a brick of it getting chareged. I have tried it with multiple chargers as well as including the USB ones but doesnt work. It shows that its getting charged and after 2 hours I see it getting charged just to level one.
Please provide me with a solution folks.
