    Are you using an aftermarket charger or the one that came with the phone?

    Maybe the other chargers don't have enough power to charge the BB. This used to happen when I would try to use my Motorola chargers with my Blackberry. Try using ones specifically made for the BB.

    AT&T retail stores try to sell you car chargers that are Motorola branded, claiming that they work with Blackberries. I tried 3 separate chargers this way, exchanging them each time. They would never charge.

    I only charge it now with the OEM wall charger or the USB charger/data cable.

    Re: 8100 Charging Issues- BAD JACK?

    It may be a bad mini USB jack on the phone. I just started having the same issue. play with the mini USB, move it in and out or lever it one way or the other and see if the charging icon will remain. if so, the phone has to go back if under warranty...
