    i have a verizon 8830 and recently updated to the 4.5.0.101 beta. everything worked fine on the software in, i thought. however, now noticed after plugging in my wall charger to charge the phone, it will not charge the battery. same thing with plugging it into the computer usb, however, the computer will recognize the device which tells me the usb port is good.

    i eventually downgraded back to 4.2.2.196 and charging worked again.

    anyone else running into this issue and have any work arounds until the official verizon release comes out. i dont want to wait till next year.

    thanks in advance

    Welcome to CB!

    I believe there is a 4.5.0.77 for the 8830. Maybe trying this 4.5 version may work better for you.

    Enjoy your addiction

    You should install the latest stable version for the 8830. According to a list on horizonwirelessonline.com updated in Nov 08 it is 4.5.0.33 Release 48.

    Most beta versions have issues ranging from locking up your phone to all the other issues in this forum of not loading the ringtones or default wallpaper. I just tried the latest beta 4.5.0.110 for the 8830 WE and it won't recognize the phone charger as well.

    So I am trying the install right now for 4.5.0.33. If it doesn't work, I am going back to the one from US Cellular which is 4.2.2. I found the file:

    8830CDMA_Public_4.5.0_rel48_4.5.0.33.exe

    from rs150.rapidshare.com


    Don't forget: you will probably need to delete your vendor.xml file from your PC to get it to install.

    After installing 4.5.0.33, my 8830WE still won't recognize the charger. I am reverting to 4.2.2.240.

    Ditto - also on 4.5.0.101 with no charging issues. Some other minor issues, but, I can live with those.
