    no i havent had that problem and i don't even have a pearl but have you tried swapping batteries?? that might be your problem.... when you connect the usb plug does it show that its connected to your device?

    No it doesn't show that it is connected at all.
    I mean it has no time, as soon as i connect the usb cord to my phone the computer completely cuts off. very quickly.

    Your computer shuts down when you plug the usb cord in? I would check the cable first and then see if you get the same reaction on another computer.

    Well I tried my sisters computer and it stayed the same =\ but I couldnt see the lightening bolt by the screen.. mind you that my battery is completely out, no more bars... no clue why it's still on but it is.

    i've tried taking out the media card thinking that would help but it didnt

    i guess theres just no resolution =\ guess i have to get a new one

    well i would see if you could get your hands on another battery, im not sure if that would solve the problem but you want to test out all the variables. it might be the battery, it might be the computer, it might be the plug.... it might be you(that was a jokey joke), i would try out diffrent things before i took the phone back though.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~you may have to et ahold of one of the moderators. I don't think its huge deal. They will probably catch it and move it anyway.

    Why don't you get a new charger? If the battery is completely caput, you may not be able to charge it through the computer.

    Well I might just have to get one
    I'm thinkin that maybe something is wrong with the pearl because BOTH of the chargers dont work at all [ the socket one and the usb ].

    I'll just take it to the tmo place.

    I bought chargers for the V3 (Motorola Razor). They work on my pearl. You can get those chargers for cheap. I got mine at a cellphone whole sale shop in manhattan. They were 3.50 a piece, the car charger was a dollar more. My girl has a razor and I have the pearl. Worked out wonders for us. If you want private message me. I'll send you one. I'm betting the cost of the item plus shipping will be less than what tmo or cingular will want from you.

    I'm not saying the new chargers will solve your problem... I dont know. But if it is the chargers then you can go this route.

    I had this problem too. My pearl charger stopped working then my old razr charger stopped working too. I had to start using my iPod charger. (I have the iPod charger that connects the USB to a wall socket)
