The mini usb port on my t-mobile 8800 broke yesterday by me jiggling the cable to connect to the wall charger as the cable would not go back into the port. T-mobile will not replace it due to "water damage" that is indicated in the battery compartment. I have no idea how that happened. I am a 53 year old totally disabled, confined to a hospital bed and a wheelchair. I have been hospitalized for the past two weeks and still am. I have had this phone a total of 4 months, of which two I have been in the hospital. Anyway is there a way of fixing the port and has anyone gotten a false positive on any "water damage?"

Re: broken mini usb port
Looks like you need a new usb jack module which you can replace yourself. Here's a guide on how to disassemble a blackberry.However you will need soldering skills to replace the module. Maybe a techsavy friend can do it for you. If you want to have somebody else do itfor you go doBlackberry Repair.
I was able to get AT&T to replace my 8800 because of the mini-usb issue-it got pushed down and became unusable, I didnt have any water damage issue but I know they checked some indicator for that issue. I was surprised that no one offers insurance for blackberrys. Big risk using them!
Buy an extra cx-2 battery and an external battery charger...
My USB port broke on me THREE times...the first two times it was covered by warranty and I sent it back through BELL to get replacement (refurbished) phones.
The third time it happened, it happened of course after my 1 year manufacturer warranty date...
I've been living with it like that since...but, the external battery charger is great. The only draw back is the amount of time it takes for the phone to boot-up/provision after rebooting.
Forget fixing the phone, just buy the power station, it is a bit pricey but it works! Even if you do go through the warrenty, BB repair centers are from CANADA and as many of these BB's with this type of issue - it is taking up to 2 weeks to get your precious, much depended on BB back! Get the power station and then if you really want to push data through the USB... well... just pray.

The charger plug should plug into the mini-USB port. This is the same port for the USB cable that would connect to the computer, and in fact the tablet can be charged from the computer if the computer is on.
Depend what model "this tablet" is. Generally tablet chargers have a USB connector at the wall plug end , plugged into the wall charger and a mini usb or proprietary connector at the tablet end. The USB connector can also be plugged into a USB port on a computer or other device. Charging rate will depend on how much current the device can deliver to the USB port, they are not all the same.

If you follow these instructions which I think you know how to, it will recharge. If not the rechargeable battery needs to be replaced
To charge the battery, simply follow the steps below:
Gently pull back the rubber cover to gain access to the mini-USB port located at the bottom of the SkyCaddie. Insert the mini-USB connector of the supplied wall charger into the mini-USB slot.
Plug the wall charger into the AC wall outlet. While charging, the charging indicator in the upper left-hand side of the SkyCaddie will show red. The charging indicator will switch to green when fully charged. You may also notice the unit's screen turn on and off periodically.
The battery will charge, even with the SkyCaddie turned off. A full battery charge may take 4 hours. Once fully charged, expect 36 holes of continuous play.
Warning!Always connect the cable to the SkyCaddie first before connecting to AC power or PC USB.
are you trying to charge the phone with the wall charger or the USB cable. if it is the USB cable then chk if the USB port both on the laptop and the hand held is faulty or not, then chk if the USB cable is faulty or not. if you are to charge through the wall charger then check if the charge is faulty if every thing this is fine then get chk the battery.
Your USB port must be repaired. In the meantime, hopefully, your computer has another USB port that you can use. Battery is a replaceable lithium ion rechargeable battery. There are battery chargers that you can connect to wall outlets - the type that plug into the computer would probably require that you plug it into the USB port, which you said is broken - so that's a no-go. There are multiple vendors for battery chargers - one possibility is http://www.greenbatteries.com/
