    What good would that do?

    Your charging port is broken. You either need to replace it yourself (if you are good at soldering) or just sell the phone

    so i ended up buying a new battery. when i went to the store to purchase it, the people at the store and their charger seemed to work just fine. i get home later on in the evening, and same thing. charger wont work..im thinking the charger itself is bad?

    Going to give it one more shot with buying a new charger, and if that doesnt work, might just buy a 9900 outright so i can buy the Q10 when it comes out

    Thanks for the suggestion john!

    Looks like it is the charger, since the one at the store worked. Either it has a broken cord somewhere or it does not have enough output.
    Have you used it before? On the Bold?

    yeah ive used it before. its a 2nd hand phone from my sister. To be honest, this might not even be a BB USB cord.

    Ill report back soon!

    And check the charger's output. It should be 700 mA or higher. Blackberries are very picky with this.

    so i just went ahead and purchased a used 9900.

    with so many problems with the 9900, i just figured it was worth it to just get it over with, and use the 9700 as a back up when the q10 comes out.

    thanks for the help everyone!
