    Why post if you don't know?? They are the same ports. All new bbs use micro.

    You can use the travel adapter and the car adaptor. If you use a charging pod, you will need to buy a new one. The pod is great and the Torch fits in easily.

    K...so this may be a silly question, but, I prefer the original charger of my 9700 to the usb cable and plug add on of the Torch. Is it bad for my phone in anyway to use the Bold's wall charge instead?

    Nope, you're fine using any blackberry charger that fits

    FWIW... In an effort to reduce waste, most of the major cell phone manufacturers have agreed to use the Micro USB ports moving forward. They say Micro USB ports are also more durable than others...
