    Can i charge my phone using the usb data cable to my pc? I have it plugged in but my battery status has not changed after a half an hour. Do they sell a usb charger for this phone?

    Thanks.

    The usb is the charger, and you can try a different usb port to see if you make any progress. Do you see a lightening bolt in the battery meter? Also, make sure the drivers are installed for the BB, otherwise you wont be able to charge with the cable.

    on mine if I let it get real low or die after I charge it shows it is still dead so I have to remove the batt. to reset it then it is fine and fully charged.

    about charging from usb cable
    it accepts both usb 1 and 2
    it do not requires to download drivers on pc.
    just connect your cable and charge it.
    all problem you are facing is may be with your pin of device.
    or some software problem

    there was one time where i had to install at least the BB drivers on the PC (not the DM) so it could start charging, but it will do it automaticlly if you have it connected to the internet. that should work.

    ~via BB(wap.pinstack.com)~i recently got a new 7100I and have a simmilar problem. It shows its charging but it doesn't. This happens with the USB and the wall charger. The only one that works is my car charger but the battery won't charge more than 80%. I didn't have a problem with my other 7100I. Oh yes the batteries check out fine and hold a full charge. Gotta love Nextel.
