    Can someone try this with their car charger

    I bought the car charger from verizon and when I plug it tinto the car and phone it never says it is charging not does it show light a lightning bolt over the battery which usually indicates it is not running off the battery.

    Might my charger be defective or is this normal?

    I'm using my old BB charger. It shows the lightning bolt and scrolling in the battery icon as well as the little white light by the micro-USB plug.

    It sounds like it might be your charger. Are you positive your lighter is providing power? The reason I ask is I have an iPod charger that I have to twist a certain way to get power out of the lighter...

    You could also check under settings -> about phone -> status and it will show you if the battery is discharging, or if it's "charging ac" which is what it should show in a car.

    When I check the settings it say full when I plug it in and discharging when I unplug it.

    I see the lightning bolt when I use the wall charger at home.

    Strange.

    If it were me, I'd bring the charger back and get a different one.

    Frustrating... but at least it sounds like a charger issue and not a device issue

    I have the same problem. I think some chargers aren't compatible. Sounds dumb but I bought a motorola charger and it works fine. My other one doesn't.

    My Verizon charger would not even stay plugged in - it just never would snap into place. I just got a generic one from a Sprint kiosk & it's worked flawlessly so far.
