I have a Blackberry Torch with an inoperable battery charger. This appears to be a common problem because I have an older 8820 model with the same problem.
Is it better to just give in and buy an iphone, or can RIM fix the problem?

Giving in and buying an iPhone is trading one problem for another; iPhones are less than perfect (despite what everyone thinks).
How are you charging your phone? Are you using the supplied charger and plugging it in to a wall outlet? If your answer is not "yes", then that's your problem. You need to use the SUPPLIED charger plugged in to a WALL OUTLET. (I'm not using capitals to yell, just to highlight the important points.)
Please post back with your response to whether you're charging in that fashion or not.

I'm still waiting for Daschi to confirm how he/she is charging the phone. A car charger or USB charger will not work as well as a wall charger supplied by RIM. We first have to make sure proper charging techniques are being used.

........with an inoperable battery charger.
I'm still waiting on word of how you charge your phone. It's a proven fact that USB and car charging do not work as well as a wall outlet. It could even be something in your OS but we need to know how you're charging your phone.
And yes, I did read the message. The problem appears to be with charging the phone, hence my questions about your charging technique.

Charger sent with phone, ATT store quick charger and chargers I have that fit this phone. All true with the 8820.
We've now established what charger(s) you're using but we don't know what you're plugging the charger(s) in to: Wall outlet, USB charger or car charger. Believe it or not, that answer will determine how we proceed with this thread.
I feel I'm not getting through to you with the correct questions so I'll leave this thread to another member to answer.

My chargers are both USB and direct to the wall plug.The AT&T store had a quick charge that plugged into the wall and directly to the Torch.
The problem is not in the charger but in the phone. I had a similar problem with the 8800 and just charged it off to old age, but now i am thinking differently. When charging, the phone lies idle on a file cabinet unless I am transfering data to my PC. Then it is lying on the desktop.
I thought the 8800 may have been caused by dropping the phone, but I think it is more than coincidental that I experienced the same problem on the Torch.
