Question about RIM BlackBerry Curve 8310 Smartphone
Have a look at the pins on the mini-USB port on the side of the phone. The ends of the small wires should all be in a row resting on the bottom (towards the back side of the phone) of the tiny slots they are in. 2 of mine were not, and it would not charge because of this. I fixed mine with the following procedure (warning! semi-delicate surgery, but easy if you're near-sighted. Will void warranty, I'm sure, so just have it replaced if you're still covered by one):
Insert a small amount of the wire from a twist-tie into the slot, pushing the end of the offending USB wire down even with the others (if it doesn't fit snug, find bigger wire).
Snip off the twist-tie as close as you can with a small pair of nail clippers, then push the remaining wire in flush with a knife point.
Apply a *small* amount of super glue to the end of the wire you just pushed in flush to keep it in place.
Worked for me, your milage may vary depending on how good you are with maniplulating teeny things.

Firstly we need to narrow down the problem - Is it the charger, battery or handset?
If you can try with a different charger so if you are trying with AC charger, try with a USB charger.
If you can swap batteries, to test if another battery in your device will take a charge.
Lastly, try your battery in another device if you can to see if that device will take charge with your battery.
If you can't test on another device, I would try another battery - its probably the cheapest option. A quick glimpse at the battery in your device may give you an indication - does it look warped?
