    Hi,
    I spent quiet sometime reading threads about charging the blackberry with a USB car adaptor into the cigarette lighter of the car.

    My issue was that the phone would throw up a message about the cable not being correct when plugged in.

    Finally I found this article and it worked no problems.

    There seems to be a lot of people with the same issue, well go here and your issues are solved

    Basically it involves cutting open your cable and joining 2 wires, tricking the phone into thinking the wall charger is connected to it.

    Simple but effective, I hope this helps anyone who was having trouble charging via their car.

    I just got the OEM car charger and it stopped doing that. Works perfectly now. Even has a usb port for double charging, can charge my gf iPhone at the same time.
