    Default Charging Z10

    Anybody have an issue plugging the Z10 in and it not starting to show the yellow charging symbol immediately? I seems occasionally I have to pull the charger out and insert it again to get it to come up.

    Some have said, it can take up to a minute for the charge to begin. Try waiting next time to see if it does start, and if not maybe take the charger back.

    Known issue and there's a KB on it at the BBRY support site. Happens when you plug the charger in too slowly.

    T of Moonshine Please.


    I've noticed that same issue. Also noticed that the charging cable must be inserted straight into the charging port on the Z10. Mine had a little play and wouldn't charge

    I have the same issue. It's nice to know that it's not just me.

    I was at work and plugged it in assuming it was charging and an hour later I checked only to see it didn't charge any.

    Also happened before I went to sleep and I use my berry as an alarm. Good thing there was enough charge.

    Now I wait and check to see it charging before i leave it. Could my phone be defective? It does this with different oem chargers. If it doesn't charge immediately I have to pull it out then plug it in a few times. Sometimes it works immediately sometimes it doesn't.

    Here's the KB article since no one posted it in this thread -> KB33636-BlackBerry 10 smartphone does not charge when plugged into a wall charger

    Certainly sounds a lot like the "You're Holding The Phone Wrong" issue that another company tried to pawn off.
