    What is it with them. My black charger that came with the phone never worked, just bought another official htc one and the phone still doesnt charge. Am I missing something . My other charger not an official one worked fine till it broke..

    Official Nokia chargers work good, everyone has one (or more) of those.

    My htc charger works fine but the cord that came with my dhd has already started to come apart near the end where it plugs into the phone. I have wires sticking out where the wire goes into the plug so I bought a new one because I don't want the wires shorting out and wrecking my phone.

    Mine still works great after 10 months but it is always plugged into the same place. My Kindle charger works on it too and so does my sis's Samsung Galaxy charger when I am at her house.

    My charger is all frayed at the end too, wires sticking out. I repaired it with black electrical tape. I can't trust any other charger. Other brands make my phone act out and go into car mode.

    I broke my toe yesterday and I've had it for 41 years without any problems until now.

    I use Nokia, and it never stops working. My boyfriend uses htc, and his is also ok. Maybe there is problem with your phone, not the charger.

    OP, did you get the official one via the HTC website? The official ones on Amazon/eBay aren't official.

    have to say that mine is still working find after 10 months (of daily use lol). It has faired much better than the bundled headset which gave up about 2 months ago!
