Blackberry Bold 9780 Won't Charge

My blackberry was charging fine a few days ago, when I tried to put it on charge this morning it wouldn't charge and this half power sign was showing in the battery, now I have to hold it in place for it to charge. I don't have warranty for the phone as I bought it of a friend. I really don't know what to do.

Re: Blackberry Bold 9780 Won't Charge

If you have to hold it in place for it to charge, it would appear that the connection is loose.  With no warranty, the only thing you can do is take it in to a repair shop to have it fixed or stand there holding the cord while the phone charges.  I don't recommend the second option.

 

You might find it easier and cheaper to just get another phone.

Re: Blackberry Bold 9780 Won't Charge

I don't have an exact number because different places charge different amounts but I'll guarantee you could get another second-hand phone for less money.

You could always visit a shop to get a free estimate.
