    I have a blackberry curve 8310 and all of the sudden my wall chargers don't work, i have several of them so i know it's not my chargers. i plug the phone in and the charging light comes on for a few seconds and then goes out. BUT for some reason the car charger still works. any ideas?

    You might have a defective Berry.

    Have you tried a different charger? USB? Wall Charger? Car Charger?

    I had a instance where my wallcharger didn't work and I replaced it and it worked great.

    One of the wires in the USB port is probably bent or messed up.

    If you have a magnifying glass, you might be able to see if one of the contacts is messed up.

    Thank you for the suggestion of a bent wire! Thats all it was, one of the wires was not making contact with my charger.

    Me too, I have this issue.

    When I look at my USB wires on the phone - what is the configuration of the wires supposed to be?

    And what did you use to "bend" the bad one back into correct alignment? A pin isn't working for me, neither is a tweezer.
