    USB charging

    hi-today I purchased a Q from Verizon-my question is can I charge the phone while it is plugged into the USB port-I have know that it depends on the USB port so I guess I was wondering if anyone has had trouble with their Macs and syncing via USB

    Unfortunately it won’t charge over USB from a Mac out of the box (even on a PC without ActiveSync installed). The USB interface on the phone has to be openned for charging to start.

    You can download an app that will do that for your Mac from here:

    that seems odd because it appears that I am able to do so because yesterday I turned off the phone and plugged it in and the charging screen appeared-it may be because I installed missing sync

    but i will give that app a try-thanks

    mine charges fine through USB. Just make sure it's not a bus powered hub, like ports on your usb keyboard. If you go directly into your computer, or through a self powered usb hub it'll charge.
