when ever i connect my device to any kind source of power to charge either Desktop computer USB port or original BOLD 9900 charger thats comes with the mobile or the car charger . i will be getting this message:
The charging source connect to your blackberry device cannot .... etc
and at the same time if i make restart to the phone. after that it will charge normally !!!!
30 mins later of usage it will go back again to same problem

I have the same problem with my Bold 9650. It will not charge except soon after a battery pull. It always complains about the "charging source", even with original charger. The battery status icon is always wrong too. After about 30 minutes (I have not timed it). It always reports the current status at the moment it goes "bad".
The problem started when I tested a new retractable USB cable on a computer that did not have the BB Desktop software (and possibly, the computer had a dead USB port)... I don't know this caused the problem, but this is when I noticed it.
OS = 6 bundle 2333 (added latest bundle after problem started, in hopes it would fix the problem, it didn't).
Carrier = Verizon

I've found a solution! In my case, the problem was caused by BuzzMe, an app that changed the color of the led depending on whether I received an e-mail, bbm, sms, etc...
I've uninstalled the app never got the problem again. No wiping needed!
Evidently, some apps that interact directly with the hardware may cause trouble.
Hope it will work for you guys.

I've had my Bold for 1 year. Today, I get the 'charging source' message for the first time. I've connected it via varous cables; ac adapters (even BB one) and nothing. Restarted - nothing. I have no fancy apps as it's my work phone. Basically, what worked yesterday does not work today. I charge it at home and at work and neither of those chargers have changed since yesterday. What gives?

Well, I fixed it myself. I think.
Rebooted - didn't work
Phone showed "battery to low for radio" and disabled something.
Deleted all messages.
Disabled all network/bluetooth.
Removed SD card
Rebooted - didn't work
Removed/Replace battery again.
Rebooted. Seems to have work.
I'm glad this is my work phone - cause it's junk. I have a feeling there was something in the latest update that is doing this.
