9900 charger

Please can you explain why I can't charge my new 9900 with the cable and plug from my 9300 or nonBB plugs/cables?

Thank you very much.

Re: 9900 charger

Both devices (9300 and 9900) use the very same MicroUSB cable.  You should be able to use them. I use the very same USB wall chargers on my 9850 that I used with my 8900 and 9500, and even the older Mini-USB cables from my 8300 with a MicroUSB adapter.

 

So, you can. Why can't you?

 

For other non-BlackBerry cables and plus, some may work, some may not, it's all according to the rated amperage allowed on the cable and charger. I have some third party chargers that work, I've bought a couple before which would not.

Re: 9900 charger

Thanks but I've decided to send it back anyway. Too big to reach right side of keyboard with left thumb and too heavy for a shirt pocket. Will look for best/latest of the original size BBs. There seem to be an unecessary number of models. Any ideas, please? Thank you. K

That is not true and quite frankly an incorrect piece of advice.

 

if you have nothing worthwhile to add, don't post.

 

It is obvious you're just trying to inflate your post count in this forum.
