    Curve not charging???

    Advertisement



    So last night I got the low battery indicator on my curve but neve bothered plugging it in to charge. Today when I woke up the battery was completely dead and my curve did not turn on. When I got into work I plugged it in to charge, but I don't see any indication that it's charging. No light is blinking, the phone is still off. It's been like this for about half hour now. I tried a friends battery and it's working fine.

    Does it always take a while for batter/curve to come to life after it's been completely depleted? or is it a faulty battery?

    If your friend's battery works you may have a battery problem. Can you try the battery in your friend's phone? You may also have a port problem or other charging problem. Eliminate what you can and post back.

    It seems to be charging in my friends phone....weird. It usually charges fine, but I never actually let it drain all the way. So what exactly does this mean?

    I've never had one drain all the way either - it's not supposed to be good for the phone - but I don't think it should cause the battery to not charge.

    Are you sure that you don't have a connection problem...maybe with one of your chargers? I've had multiple problems with a USB port before where one charger would make a connection and another wouldn't. It's even been true that, since the USB was loose itself, I could lay the phone down (with a charger connected) and, depending on the position of the phone, it would or would not connect and charge. Make sure that isn't your problem.

    Other than that I don't know why the battery would charge in your friend's phone and not yours.

    Check the female plug on the BB, it might be broken.

    like i mentioned earlier in my post...my charger works fine if i don't let the battery completely run out...it's only after it's totally drained that it doesn't charge...again, this has only happened once. I typically don't let the battery fully drain.
