Charging Cradle/Pod not charging
Ok, so yesterday I walked into my local T-mobile store and purchased the Blackberry Charging pod for my 9700. It was 29.99 plus tax. I get home, plug it in and place my Bold2 on the pod... No dice. The pod is lit up, its plugged in correctly but just won't charge. I'm a little frustrated now. Is there a setting on my berry to allow pod charging? Somebody help me out here. Thanks in advance
Do you have a case on the 9700 that might be keeping the contacts on the device from connecting to the ones on the pod?
make sure nothing is interfering with the pod contacts such as dust, case, clear skin etc

With mine some times I don't set my 9700 on the dock strait so it doesn't charge. Just adjust it and see if its not sitting on there correctly

If you are going to take the time to respond... take the time to actually understand that to which you are responding.
I don't have a case on it, its makin contact... I'm startin to think the cradle is defective.
Yeah, well one way to find out.....go back to the store, unpackage another cradle and try it right there in the store.
Indeed, I appreciate all the assistance for everyone.
The contacts on the side (small copper bits barely sticking out) do not always make great contact.
I have two of these - one always makes good contact - the second is very intermittent.
I have taken it apart a couple of times (peel off the foam base, four screws, be gentle as the parts are wired together) and adjusted the contacts. Didn't really help as much as reseating the BB a few times until I get contact. Putting the BB to go into sleep mode when charging gives a much better visual indication that it is charging than looking for the little lightening bolt.
Thank you, I had wondered about that... It must have slipped my mind
