my blackberry 8820 won't charge

What are you using to charge it -- the AC adapter (wall charger) or the car charger? Try using the other one and see if it will charge that way -- if it will, the problem is whichever adapter won't charge it. If neither will, then maybe you have a problem with the battery.

If you don't have a car charger, you can also try charging it from your computer by using a USB cable.

iPhone wont charge after plugging into the wall.

There are three solutions to your problem:
1) The battery needs to be replaced; or
2) The charger is defective (if you have a car charger you can use it to see if the phone will charge. If it will you'll need to replace the wall charger.) or
3) Your phone needs to be sent to a service facility for repair.

My Blackberry Wont charge?!

look at the 6 pins on the phones charge port and see if one is higher than the others (usually on the end). if the pins is too far up the lower half doesnt connect to the charger. If your usb port will charge on via usb "DOCK" then more than likely the charger itself (which is way more simple to fix)

1.) if one of the pins on the phones charge port is pushed up, grab a sewing needle and GENTLY push the pin back into place,

2.) if the charging dock is working and is a usb charger like your wall charger, buy a new wall charger at your local electronics store.

hope this helps!
