    Charging Issue

    Advertisement



    I love charging my phone via usb but I have noticed that if I dont have the bb software installed on the computer I am trying to charge off of I get the message "usb current is not sufficient to charge". Is there any way to fix this, I never had a problem like this with any of my windows mobile devices. HELP!!

    Re: Charging Issue

    Its not the software that charges your phone. Its the current. Im not sure what to tell you the problem is. There could be a number of issues causing it not to charge properly through usb. 1) bad cable 2) issue with hardware( could be phone or computer usb port) those are top of my head. But the message you get 'usb current is not sufficient to charge' thats a totally new message that i have ever seen. Maybe first narrow issues. using a different cable. if you dont have one take back to carrier store and tell them the problem and have there tech plug it in to see what they get. I hope this helps to start.

    If the other computer is older and using USB 1.0 instead of USB 2.0, then you will have this issue. The PC's USB must be 2.0 in order to charge your BB correctly.

    Re: Charging Issue

    I am using 2 different computers, at differnet times, when I charge my BB. One of them is USB 1.0 and the other is 2.0. Still charges sufficiently. Are you charging using a laptop or a PC? Is/are the computer(s) in hybernation mode? How low is your battery when you start charging?

    You must have the DM (Desktop Manager) software installed to PC in order to charge via USB. Simple as that and no other way around it.

    Nuff said!!!!! The only time that I got that message was when I had already run my phone down to near dead or when my laptop went into hybernate mode.

    Re: Charging Issue

    thanks for the all the responses look like i found the best answer for me. On the blackberry website you can download a 11mb file that is just a usb driver. This file allows the computer to charge the blackberry without the dm software installed. I am dissapointed in RIM looks like another feature that windows mobile has that blackberry doesn't.
