    I noticed my phone has stopped being charged by the wall charger. Not to sure why this is. I tried several different outlets in my house and it wouldn't charge. I then used the same cable and plugged it up to my computer and it charges with no problem. My car charger cable works too. Any ideas why the wall charger would want to stop working all the sudden? Its not the cable because like I said I have it charging via my computer.

    Things break. Often for no reason.

    Good news is they are cheep. If not the original then an after market one.

    If you have some random USB powered device (fan, light, robot toy) you can try that to see if there is still power coming from the wall charger.

    If it's your OEM charger, go ahead and go to your VZW store and just have them switch it out for you. They'll do it as a warranty replacement at no cost to you. The warranty is for a year from your purchase date, so you should be fine now since no one is at that point yet, but do it quickly, in case you did buy it at launch. Which is coming up on its one year anniversary soon.

    You've never had anything else that stopped working all of a sudden? :confused:

    I would recommend a replacement from the Verizon store. Aftermarket replacements vary in quality and filtering. I've seen some aftermarket chargers that "work with this phone" that have very poor filtering and pass AC ripple (AC voltage superimposed on the DC voltage) that cause the phone to do weird stuff while charging. As little a one-tenth of a volt of AC coming out of your charger can make your phone do strange things. In this case ...go with the original charger.

    This has been working great for me. $8.99 plus shipping.
