well there goes me switching back to my berry to see if I missed it anymore.
Are you trying to charge it on the computer?
yeah i'm trying to charge it on the computer. when the battery/lightening bolt came up that was on my car charger.
Could be that the usb port you're using doesn't have enough juice to charge the BB... I would try plugging into the wall to charge it before going nuts trying other stuff.
Oh I missed what you said about the car charger... sorry!

if i only had an outlet charger with me at this time. I do have another storm sitting at home and several batteries so if worst case i will throw it in the trash
1. Remove the battery.
2. Free phone from any type of plug-in devices (i.e. charger or usb).
3. Push the red END/Power Button and hold for approximately 10 seconds.
4. Plug in charger (ensure charger is connected to electrical outlet).
5. Press the red END/Power Button again for 10 seconds.
6. While charger is still connected, replace battery.
7. Press down on END/Power button until red light goes off.
8. The screen will flash and a small timer icon will appear.
