    Error message: USB charging current is not sufficient. Verify that your handheld is connected to a powered USB charging source and that the proper USB driver is installed.

    Question: Should I do something with the Blackberry maybe in options?

My phone was doing the same thing. I woke up in the morning to see that is wasn't charging from any outlet or my USB.

I instead concentrated on the USB opening on my phone, and realized that one of the pins was so ever slightly moved up. I took a safetly pin and gently kept bending it back down. Now it charges. Good luck and hope that helps! Just something different from the warranty/flashthrow away solution.

My 8310 done the exact same thing, i sent it off back for repair and when it came back a letter said that the solution for it was to install the operating system again, due to a software error.

Try backing up all of your essential data (phone numbers, photos, messages) taking the memory card and sim card out and plugging it into a PC and using desktop manager to Re install a new operating system (you can download software off of blackberrys official site)

Alternativly if its still within warranty and you cant do it, or you can do without it for a week or two, then send it back to your Network Providor. They have to repair it By law if its within the Guarantee.

Hope this helps

    I changed my cord for charging, and all was okay. It may be a pin contact on your cable is causing a surge, or cross wiring leading to surge.

My Blackberry refuses to Start Up


There is an issue with your firmware. You will need to do is:
1. Unplug BB from PC.
2. Launch the "Application Loader" like you were going to install something.
3. While the app loader is attempting to connect to the BB, plug the USB cable into the BB.

I have a bb 8320 and when i plug it into the wall it charges but when i plug it into my laptop nothing happens why is that?


If your regular charger is working in the wall, it sounds like the USB cord that you are using with your computer isn't a "charging" USB. I don't think you are having a malfunction with your BB.

My usb port is damaged on my blackberry can not charge it how do I charge the battery? I cant charge it via the usb port which is needed for almost everything. is there another way to charge my blackberry...


The only thing you can do is use another BB to charge up the battery, and then swap batteries. Someone usually has a broken BB (screen dark, sound stopped working etc) which they will give you for free..

Sounds like the battery has failed. Replace it on Ebay for a new cheaper battery than at AT&T.

My BB 8320 will not power up


try turning it on with the battery removed while it is connected to the charger.
if it turns on fine then, it's a battery issue. if it still doesn't come on, i would recommend reinstalling the device software with the desktop manager software. both are available on blackberry.com

My Blackberry curve 8320 won't turn on it just has a battery icon with a red line through it on screen. A new battery was tried and the problem still exists.


This usually means the bb and battery got a little wet or has other issues. Try these solutions in order. They go from easisest to hardest. NOTE: If you have an insurance policy on the bb probably best just to take it in.

1. Remove the back cover. Remove the battery and the SIM card. Wait 30 seconds. Replace SIM, battery and back cover. Reboot. Plug in the bb and charge fully.

2. If that doesn't work, allow the bb to remain unplugged but ON for about 24 hours to drain the battery. Remove back cover and battery. Allow battery and opened bb to sit in a dry environment for 24 - 36 hours. Relace battery and cover. Reboot. Plug in the bb and charge fully.

3. If that fails, retry step 2 but allow battery to FULLY drain then dry out again.

4. Take in to cell store.

Power surge on hub port


I am having to send my wife's curve out for repair today as it seems that the very fine connections made to the circuit board from the power port have come away. This port seems to be very fragile, and poorly designed IMHO given that it has to be used so frequently.
