    Try taking to Sprint. See if you can claim warranty on it. Worse thing they can say is no.

    I don't know Sprints policy. But the phone should have a one year warranty on it. Just take it in and see what happens.

    You might be SOL on this. I've heard a few people on here with the same problem and weren't able to get it replaced.

    I wonder if it still could be covered by BB since CompUSA is gone. There is nothing to loose by calling them.

    The Phone is still under BB 1 year warranty. RIM should honor the warranty.

    send it off to BBRepair.com. they fix it and mail it back. I had mine fixed by promobility.com but I WOULD NOT recommend them!! It took EIGHT WEEKS to get my phone back! It was a Horror Story!

    BBrepair.com offers the same service, and advertises a 24hour turnaround after receipt of the phone

    actually sprints pretty good w/ replacing their equipment, i've gotten so many treo's and ppc's replaced on the spot all w/o a headache, their billing issues are another story.

    i use a blackberry charging pod for my curve, i dont know if they have them for the 8830 but just go to a sprint store and have them look at it

    If it is under a year old and you have the receipt RIM will cover it under warranty.

    I got my broken USB charging port replaced in less than an hour by Cell Phone Fixed in Seattle, WA. They also do mail in repairs. Their website is just their name: cellphonefixed

    VZW sent my phone in for like $50 or so and I had to get the phone replaced, about a week. Like 8 months later its happening again though, annoying. Make sure you are backing up on the desktop mgr so its easy to transfer to new phone

    They sell the replacement part on cnn.cn for cheap, that is, if you are good with some soldering.

    It really sucks... mine broke on a 8310 too... no warranty; had to send it out for repairs but I wish I'd just bought a cradle charger. I hope my new 8900 does not have the same problem!!

    I thought my usb port was broken. Turns out remembering my son stuck the end of my charger in play dough, I dug it out and plugged it in. Little did I know some was still in the charger part and it clogged one of the 5 pins in the phone part.
    They are spring loaded and if one is stuck it doesn't make contact until you wiggle the plug. a needle and canned air solved my problem.
    This might not help some, but I just wanted to share it. I used a lighted magnifying glass to find it. I unstuck the pin and it works fine.

    I hope this helps
