    I've been having problems with different chargers (Motorola car and rapid charger) sometimes when I plug the charger in the phone charges! and other times the phone doesn't respond at all.

    Looking into some of the threads in this forum I saw a post from trim81.

    I tried this for my Motorola micro USB charger (PN: SPN5328A) and it works with trim81's instructions.

    Here's the good news:

    Since changing the software (pressing the screen lock button) allows the charger to go from a very low success rate to a 100% success rate this problem seems to be a software bug.

    This is good news because they can just release an update (hopefully) that will deal with the problem.

    Thanks! I was wondering if my cheap Motorola charger was defective or not. It works like a champ if I follow those steps.

    Its the nature of the Pres...not sure if its software or hardwae but it is what it is

    I just open the slider and plug it in, that works for me.
