    Ok thinking about switching from my 8330 to the 8530. Does anyone know if the chargers are the same or do i have to get a new car charger?

    Not the same. You can get adapters though. The 8330 has a mini usb, and the 8530 has a micro usb. One good thing is that all BB's (and most other phones) from now on will have the micro usb port.

    Yes. Storms, Bold 9700, 8530, Tour, all have micro usb ports. I'm sure I forgot one. Lots of LG and Motorola phones have it too. All you need is a "micro usb" charger.

    Where are you buying your batteries? Typical charger is like 8 bucks and can be even cheaper going the eBay or Amazon route? I purchased a charger kit that contained a home AC Charger and a car charger that can power my GPS or the Blackberry and only paid $12 at the local flea market.

    No problem, glad I could help. Take yours back, buy two of these and use the extra to buy a new theme or app, or whatever. Heck with that kind of savings, take the wife out to lunch somewhere

    I was looking for the Motorola mini-to-micro usb adapter and inquired at cnn.cn. Here is his response:
    "Were out of the Motorola one, but we do have this one miniUSB to microUSB adapter plug - Cellular Nationwide Network - Cellular Accessories - 3G, Sony,, it does the same thing."

    Check it out, right now they have a 20% off and $5 credit on shipping if you use PayPal, so free shipping!

    Does anyone have this adapter?

    Looks like this would be a good thing for us, we have 2 car chargers with the mini usb.

    $2.99 sure sounds better than $29.99 for a new charger with a micro usb.

    I just ordered 2 from them. It take about 2 weeks for stuff to come from China.

    To answer your other question - yes, I have ordered stuff from them before and can say that the BB parts I've received are OEM, unlike other places I have purchased parts from. They are certainly not the cheapest but their quality is hard to beat.

    Yep, got one at my office. We have a lot of Curve 1's still in use and a few Curve 2's and 9700's so I can use one cable for all of them and just slip the adapter on when needed. I got mine for 1.99 ea. a while back and with USPS rate of only 1.88 worked out to under $4.00 for the adapter and s/h. If you live in a big city, you may even be able to find locally though I have no idea how much they would be.
