    I have a I90c that is about 4 months old. The home charger is a
    NNTN4250A. When using this 110volt charger it doesnt seem to always
    want to charge the phone. I usually have to plug it in 4 or 5 times
    and turn the phone off and on before some magic combination happens to
    make it start charging. None of the pins on the charger or phone seem
    to be bent or corroded. Anyone else have these problems?

    No problems exactly like that here, but I've had to swap an i90 and
    several i1000 phones out for new ones at the service center. If you
    bought yours new you might want to see if you can do an in warranty swap
    with the dealer you purchased it from or go to a service center.

    Re: I90c charging

    Ben,
    Do me a favor please. Look at your new charger. Look at the end that
    plugs into the phone. Does that end have about 3 prongs that are not
    all at the same height? I I I
    I I I
    II I
    And if you have the car charger, are all the prongs the same height?
    Thanks

    Tom, the charger has two prongs that fold in. As far as the car charger,
    I'll let you know when I get to my car. I've never really checked that stuff
    before.

    The end that plugs into the PHONE. NOT the end that plugs into the

    Re: I90c charging

    Tom, the end that plugs into the phone does have three prongs that are not
    all the same size. Two are the same, one is a little bigger.

    Re: I90c charging

    Pacific,
    Now you werent following along, were you? The battery has nothing to
    do with my problem. If I plug it into the cigarette lighter adapter,
    everything works perfectly. The Nextel authorized service center agent
    I took it to said the phone is the problem and it needs to be replaced
    in warranty. Too bad that "kid" has no clue. He should look for
    another job. What I have found out is that if you have the NNTN4250A
    charger (NOTE THE A) you need to send it back. Its an old (I say old
    again) piece of crap. You will get a NNTN4250B (Note the B) charger.
    My phones were purchased in Feb of this year along with the rapid
    travel chargers they came with (NNTN4250B) The Motorola rep said that
    charger is well over a year old and not under warranty. I told him
    "Wrong Bucko"! I have the receipt in front of me. He is sending out
    two new chargers (Both I90c phones and chargers are doing this) under
    warranty as long as I send the old ones back with proof of purchase.
    Obviously they tried to get rid of some old stock.
    Suprise, suprise.

    Yes, just clean the contacts with q-tips and alcohol.

    Already tried that. It worked for about 5 mins then back to the same
    thing. The rapid travel charger in the <A> series is a lemon.

    Re: I90c charging

    As weird as it sounds, it appears my charging issues are somehow related
    to firmware updating.

    Never had a problem prior to recent updates it seems... Coincidence?

    Sometimes also get a message on the screen that I'm using an
    incompatible charger, which I am not. Sometimes the phone powers off on
    me. Grrr....
