    Your kids aren't playing with your BB while it's charging are they? You did get a new charger didn't you?

    For example, are you using a Moto charger with the BB. Although their both mini usb compatible, I find they don't necessarily fit or connect flawlessly

    Bellidansa, Does it charge when you connect it to the PC through the USB cable?

    LGV....it used to charge via PC....but not now....it is busted.....the problem is the port on the BB ....it has now shifted......which is the beginnings of it to disconnect/ break the hell off into BB hell....

    I have a long history of this...you would think in my sleep I am doing nothing but destroying my BB's....

    I have been through too many BB's....ooh well...waiting for the 2nd Pearl...

    TMO had the nerve to tell me that I will be getting a REFURBISHED 8100 Pearl...heck the phone hasnt been out in circulation for a month, and already there are REFURBISHED PEARL ??

    Willie! What in gods name are you doing?!

    You may just need to hang up the bb.

    I dismantled the 7100 and yep, usb was completely disconnected from the board in all 4 contact points.

    Just bouncing around in there. You have talent chica.

    Still trying to find a way to "modify" it. ;-)

    Talent ??? I think I will add this to my resume....

    N8 !! I swear for the life of me I haven't the foggest....I think from now on, I will charge directly from my PC...as if that will make a difference..

    I think a sure fire fix would be if RIM could have a thin piece of rubber, surrounding the USB port to buffer the initial force of contact.....it is metal contacting with metal...

    In the meantime, I am glad you are my confirmation of my slaughter of BB's....If this continues, you will be a proud owner of a few 8100's ..

    I believe Erica had the same problems with her BB's ..so I am not alone.....I may infact maybe going through them faster than she !!

    USB only has four pins, and two of them are for data. It's unlikely the people who made your car charger screwed up. Most likely it's either a loose connection in the charger, or a badly made usb connector.
