    I plugged my curve in to charge tonight..and noticed roughly 3 hours later it still hadnt charged.
    So i tried replugging it in..and even re setting the battery to see if for some weird reason it WAS charged but needed a battery pull to show it was charged.
    I checked the line for rips or tares.
    nothing.

    then i looked close at both the hole in the phone where the plug goes in..and the plug itself.



    for one..ive never acutaly took a close look at either of these before..so i donno what theyre supposed to look like.

    to me it looked as if maybe a tiny chip inside the plug broke off into the phone? so i thought i woudl have to take it into rogers tomorow to take a look.
    got ready for bed..went to turn off the phone so it wouldnt beep at me in the night indicateing low battery.
    to my surpize in the last couple minutes it had jumped from 15% charged to 30% charged..it was chargeing.

    so here's the stupid question to you before i take it in and ask the stupid question to the rogers techies tomorow.

    -is it possible for a piece of the charger to break off into the phone..and if wiggled ito the right position could still charge?

    -if you look into the hole in your charger..is there a chip(ish looking thing in it) or dose it look empty?


    ahha im gonan be amazed if any of you know what im talking about..its 2 am and im tired

    It is possible for a charger or charge port contact to break, however rare. It is also possible to make a connection that can make contact and allow charging to continue.

    But, be on the wise side, don't take chances on shorting something out and have it checked. Better to check and repair than replace.

    Before I had my blackberry I had a phone that, when it neared its death, would only charge if I inserted the plug at certain angles. Not really sure why, but it happened. Anyway, I'd take it in to have it checked just to be on the safe side
