    Dunno, but the OEM pod is less than $15 on Newegg.com and on Amazon.

    Newegg.com - BlackBerry 30758LRP Desktop Charging Pod For Bold 9000 - Cell Phone Accessories
    I got 2 fr $12 from some storefront on amazon.

    sorry to ask, but what's bedside mode? the little light is now green and is staying on, its not blinking like it was before..does that mean it's fully charged?
    Yeah it does mean its fully charged when the light is green. I usually have mine on auto off at 1 am and auto on at 6 am...its usually fully charged by then and it lasts me the whole day...and then repeat again the next night.

    I just use a wall charger, it works just fine.

    What's the advantage of a charging pod? Is it just so that it looks cooler on the desktop?

    I connect my Bold to the wall charger every night before I go to bed. I have done this with every cell phone I have ever owned. Occasionally, I will use a car charger if my battery is getting low during the day because of excessive use.

    I hope to get a charging pod in the near future. Then I can just plop my Bold in it without trying to find the mini-USB port on the phone in the dark.

    I plug mine in every night and charge it with the cord that came with the phone. My battery is never lower than one bar, but I charge it every night anyway.

    Is there any advantage to having a charging dock instead of using a wall charger?

    I charge at every chance I get. Primarily in the office. It's charging right now. I chat and email and bbm at the same time. I'm very careful about not putting any stress on the usb port. 8800=fail

    I use the dock and night mode.

    Anyway to prevent the bold from charging while on USB and only use AC? I have having to leave bedside mode everytime I plug the thing into the comp.

    Is there something bad about charging it on the USB?
