    Some obvious questions:

    I assume you're using the charger and not the usb cable. If you plug the charger into the phone, does it indicate it's charging?

    If yes, when you plug the charger into the pod, it should indicate the same.

    If not, check the pod's usb connection - are the 5 gold pin connectors okay?

    If yes, then I'm stumped. Unless the pod is defective.

    I've purchased several from Amazon and they all worked flawlessly.

    When you plug the pod in does it illuminate? There should be a white light at the back of the pod and an illuminated Blackberry logo on the front.

    If it illuminates, something is wrong with your phone's rear charging connections. Have you taken this phone apart? If not, consider returning it.

    That means that power is going to the pod.

    If your brother's BB charges on the pod, your BB has defective charging contacts at the back of the phone.

    Take a pencil eraser and gently rub the connectors to clean them for a few seconds.

    It should be lit when connected to USB or wall charger. Even when no phone docked.
