Hi tanjazip10,


It is unfortunate you are having trouble charging your phone.  I am not sure when you purchased the Curve, but it does have a 1 year manufacturers warranty.  Additionally if you purchased the TEC insurance, your device has a 2 year manufacturers warranty. 

The warranty does cover an defective device as long as there is not any physical or water damage present.  I am hopeful your issue has been resolved within the last few days.  If not, please PM me your wireless number and I will be happy to go over your options.  I look forward to hearing from you soon.



Thank you for your involvement in our community forums,

You probably could use a new battery or an external charger.  They are readily available from a variety of sources on the 'Net.  Many are quite cheap, so make sure that you get a genuine article.  Some of the knock-offs from China are good, and some are bad, so buyer beware.  Just also be aware that you shouldn't have to pay full list price for the genuine article.
