Your kids aren't playing with your BB while it's charging are they? You did get a new charger didn't you?
I cannot believe I am going through this again.....If anyone knows me..this has been my rain cloud testimony since day one.....with these BB's....the 7100's...7105's and now, MY PEARL !!!!!!
I have had this phone less than 1 month...and the USB Port on the Pearl is going bad again....
What in the flim flam am I doing WRONG ??
Ok...the female connection merges with the male connection...ok...so what is the problem ??? Hello ?? I have rack of kids I know ALOT about the connections !!!!
Yea, I sleep with my BB, but it isnt charging at that time, for fear of the cord bending, I charge my phone on my dresser, I walk away....and that is it !!
Back in BB hell.......and now I will be sleeping alone, without my BB !!!!
This is totally not cool.......
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
Regarding the kiddies killing my BB (I have triplets)...no...but one of them was the culprit of chewing my charger a ways back....she had this thing for chewin' anything plastic...my little billy goat.....she is a reformed chewer now.....after the 3rd demise...I have it charged on my dresser which is quite high....
Yep...new charger......same issued RIM BB chargers....no knockoffs.......
OOH GOD !! I AM THE BB WIDOW !!!!!
Bellidansa, Does it charge when you connect it to the PC through the USB cable?
Thanks CP....but even you know better to wish me luck....it is bound to happen again....Originally Posted by cp6169
Cause I am the BB Widow.....
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....Originally Posted by LGV2006
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 ??
OK... I guess you are... well, U know!
~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~
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....Originally Posted by N8DBB
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.Originally Posted by slmoney
i use one of those convertors that plug into your cigg lighter socket and just use my house charger with that.Originally Posted by slmoney
