    I emailed Sprint about this problem and they have offered to replace my phone because it is under 30 days. After unplugging and replugging the USB cord it did manage to charge. Not sure if this is a common problem or worth having the phone replaced.
    Thanks

    Ordered the Treo Pro AC Charger from Sprint....it was listed under accessories for the Pro, got it today and the Pro isn't one of the ones listed on the package, but that might be because the Pro just came out and it uses the same charger....

    I need your help and opinions.

    I just order this USB car charger. It say "1 Amp High Output". Yea right ???

    Link: http://www.gomadic.com/unusbcarchar.html

    Well, it will charge ONLY if I am not running any application.

    The problem is I like to run GPS software on the Pro and in my car and when this thing is plug, its not charging. It is actually draining.

    Is this the same with all the USB car charger as listed in Post #1?

    Is there any USB car charger out there that would charge when running power intensive application?

    I remember when I had my Dell Axim x51v, the only time it would charge and running the application is when my battery is fully charged at 95% or more. Is this the same case here?

    Sorry for the double post, but I am trying to get max coverage.

    I have problem with my Gomadic USB car charger which they claim charge at 1 AMP and after I email their tech support that their device doesnt work, they reply back with this below:

    ====

    Actually, it's just another USB car adapter. The difference is that the one we sent has the data lines looped which will put your device in charge mode. You'll see when it arrives!

    Sincerely,
    Gomadic

    Is this what you all are talking about in post #1 about something shorted?

    Can you confirm that this charger will work with the Pro? I've been looking for a reliable seller on ebay....

    remember, as a general rule for the pro: if the data lines are shorted/looped/tied together, it will work regardless of app running or what your phone is doing.

    Just to confirm. I shorted the data pins on most of my chargers and have had no problems since. Also so far i havent had any problems charging my other devices after making the change.

    there are 2 way to short the data pins:

    -open the charger and apply solder the the two center pins of the usb connector and solder a wire across them... but make sure the cable only shorts those two pins and nothing else.

    - grab a cable, strip it to get to the center wires and look for the two data wires (most likely they'll be blue and green, but NOT black or red). strip them and tie them together. use this cable to charge your devices, but remember this cable won't be capableof doing regular usb data transfers.

    Is there any reason we couldn't find an adapter with the data pins shorted? Meaning instead of having to alter chargers or cables, have a USB adapter with them shorted in it? That would allow us to use any USB charging option, even borrow a quick charge from a friend without altering the devices...

    I got another USB charger from Gomadic yesterday.

    I had my TT7 running and guess what, it charges!

    I try to look at the shorted pin from outside but I cant see it. Do I have to open up the charger?

    Anyhow I am happy. It is expandable as it uses a USB cable.
