    How do I Charge this Blackberry?

    Advertisement



    Hello all.. Recently I found a Blackberry 8700c (Cingular one).. I contacted Cingular... they had me give them the IMEI number and had me call from that cell.. They deactivated the sim card and were very nice.. they contacted the guy who owned it, and he already provessed it to his insuirance company and said he didn;t mind if I kept it sicne Iwas honest and called Cingular, and he lived in another state anyways.. Well, after talkign with them they agreed they would unlock it for me so I could "Travel over seas" with it.. Here is my question.. Does this blackberrry charge over the USB port? I haven o charger, jsut hte blackberry.. It is the same wire that fits it as my Motorola MPX200 phone... So that would be GREAT... Thanks in advance

    Yep...Feel free to use the USB to charge it.

    Where are you from? I have about 10 chargers and you'd be more than welcome to have one if you're ever in Nashville.

    i hear the pin element of a Moto usb is not exactly the same as the RIM one...and if you try to charge a BB with the Moto charger, it will take longer....any truth to this?

    Teej, Welcome to PinStack.

    The BB will charge just fine from a fully compiliant USB port. Make sure you don't have the power saving settings for the USB Port turned on though. Just make sure you see a lightning symbol next to your battery status indicator when you start to charge it.

    Does that lightening symbol go away? My battery has been charging for about 4 hours and the lightening symbol is still there, although under "status" it shows 100%

    The lightening bolt does go away once fully charged, at least in my case, 7100i and 8703e.

    I'm on 8703e with Verizon, and it does not go away ( unless I unplug the charger ). The status shows 100%, and its been charging for 4 hours so I know it is fully charged. Any ideas? Also, should the actual battery image itself be blue when its full, or just the bars to the left side of it?

    Just the Bars. On Mine, It will go away, but come back if I open any app or do anything that uses current. That is just an indication that the unit is drawing current over the USB port above a trickle charge rate.

    Hope this helps
