Phone will only charge using USB and computer
A few weeks ago my phone stopped charging when I use the wall plug. It worked for a while using the car charger, then that stopped working too. Now it will only charge when I connect it to a USB connector on a computer. I use the same cable to plug into the wall charger as I do with the USB. Has anyone else seen this? I'm thinking this must be a hardware issue, but does anyone think it could be software? I am running the Froyo EB01 but it was working for several weeks on EB01 before it stopped.

It IS the cable that came with the phone. It is a dual purpose cable. It has the USB connector that can connect straight into a USB plug or it can be connected to the wall adapter for charging in a wall outlet. I wondered if it was the wall adapter but I thought it was telling that my car charger stopped working as well. I don't have another non-usb adapter to try. I will go by the Verizon store and have them check as well, but I just wondered if anyone here had any ideas...people here seem to often know more than the people at the Verizon stores. ;-)

Re: Phone will only charge using USB and computer
Hi there! I found the solution to this problem using a 5v charger. In my case, it worked with a Blackberry charger. It seems it has a higher voltage than my a Sony Ericsson charger, that has 4.7v.
Try it out!
