Charging pod light "blinking"
I bought the small charging pod for the curve and the mobi angled wall charger. When the berry is in the pod, the RIM logo on the front will begin to blink/flash for about 5-10 seconds several times throughout the day. I just wondered if this was normal, I don't want to fry my battery or berry!
Thanks for any help!

I stand corrected, never really stared at the phone when it was just about to ring or get an email..... but hmmmm.. so wonder if it's the voltage going thru.... It blinks on and off twice, then flickers when there is activity...
thanks for the heads up, I stand corrected. I am going to crawl back into my hole.....

I only noticed it one day myself because I have my charger on my desk just to the side of my laptop & noticed it blinking just before BB red light blinked....I don't sit & stare at my phone all day waiting for someone to call (honest) hee hee
why yes it does....
Ok, so I never linked the 2 together, and hadn't received any messages this am. After reading on, I too realize now that it occurs just b4 receipt of a message/call. Kinda neat, still curious as to what is actually going on here though.....

I think it also blinks when its doing its random data search thing (flashing arrows in top corner of BB screen) so it may blink but you don't have a message if you know what i mean.
Not sure how it works, it may be similar technology to those little phone charms you get that blink when a call is coming. Have you seen them ?....they're common thing here in UK with the Kids.

So are you talking about the BlackBerry branded charging pod?
If so I've never noticed that, but truthfully, its sitting on my nightstand and I really only out my phone on it before I go to bed.
That's a very cool feature.

I am new to BB and love the 8330 i just got. I'm now in the process of looking into accessories. I'm looking at BlackBerry Charging Pod for Curve 8330found here on the CB site.
The Charging POD does not come with a power cord. So I have a few questions:
1. Can I use the USB connection to my PC as a charger?
2. If not, How can I tell which one of the other wall chargers are compatible with this POD?
Any input is greatly appreciated.

The charger that came with you BB works with the POD, at the base of the pod at the back is a little USB outlet exactly like your BB so instead of putting the usb into your BB you put it into the back of Pod & then just slot your BB into the pod.
Yes, USB / PC cable also works for charging via your computer.
I assume you are meaning the Pod as the link in my post above yours ? & not any of the other charger / pods

Thanks for your reply.
Yes...I meant the POD.
What I am looking to do is charge my BB at home & work.
I am assuming I could leave the POD on my desk at work and charge the BB at work with the USB cable provided and use the wall charger at home.
Just to clarify...under the scenario above, all I need to by is the POD...I could use the USB at work to charge thru the POD?

My Charging Pod is also occassionally blinking when I put my Blackberry Curve. I believe this as defective though.
I also noticed the charging pod blinking whenever there was a transmission going. The moment I noticed the arrows showing in and out next to the GPRS logo, the charging pod was also blinking.
