    My 8120, less than 3 months old, will not charge using the wall charger or the USB cord. It was working yesterday, but when I tried to charge it today, nothing.

    I have taken the battery out and it still will not charge. The battery is almost dead. Anyone else had a similar problem? Suggestions?

    It is most likely a bad connection with the USB port, Wiggle it alittle and if that works, then you should order a new one, or since you have a warranty trade it in.

    Thanks much for the advice. BB tech support suggests that it is the battery. Wants to send me a new battery via UPS ground. Will not entertain the port being bad until the batter is checked out.

    Go to your local T-Mobile store and have them take a look at it. They may even pop in a new battery for testing purposes to try and track down the problem.

    battery has nothing to do with the charger? if it is the battery i will be shocked... cause if its plugged in a dead battery (that cant be charged) will still work, it will act as a bridge sorta for the power to the phone. It has to be the port or the charger. like i said if its the battery i will be shocked.

    I had a similar problem, all of a sudden that charge icon wouldn't show when I plugged in my pearl. I plugged it into my computer and connected to my desktop manager then disconnected. Its been working fine since.

    Seems odd to me that the battery would be the issue. I tried connecting to my computer with no luck. That's why I agree that it must be the USB port.

    I will be going into the T-Mobile store to have them check it out today.

    Thanks much for the advice.
