    your usb female part might be broke. If you have the dock, you could try that since that works with the battery contact.

    Definitely sounds like a hardware issue. Are you under warranty?
    If so you might want to return it and get another one.
    If not there are repair places:

    If you are trying to charge from a computer, make sure the Desktop and Blackberry drivers are loaded.

    There is an issue with curves made in mexico, the female plug is broken or the metal pins are bent.

    I have the exact same problem. It started today and seems to be the female part. Different chargers dont work and of course I now cant sync.
    Going back to t-mobile first then see where I end up. I can get one car charger to work intermittently, just enough to keep it alive.

    I was told sometimes one of the pins (I think there are 5) in the USB port gets bent back, etc - I was told it was often caused by using different chargers - who doesn't do that? In my experience you'll have to have it replaced eventually - they don't fix themselves unfortunately.

    Bad part to break, can't do a backup when it's broken. I saw a few with broken or soon-to-be broken right out of the box. Lame.
