    Good Day,

    I have a friend that has an LG UX300 cell phone. He is a very avid bicycle rider and is getting ready to leave on a trip. His problem is that he has an LG UX300 phone that will not charge through the usb port on a pc. This would pose no problem at most places but he will be camping out at all times. He has bought a solar charger for phones that has a usb hookup. He has bought a usb cable to hook up to his phone. At work he hooked up his phone to his pc that is running Vista using his new cable. The computer did see the phone but there is no indication of the phone charging. I hooked up my phone (Moto) and it works just fine. Does anyone have any information about problem with this type phone charging through a standard usb port? Thanks in advance for any help. If you need any more info please feel free to ask.

    Eddie

    Might check the cable he is using and make sure it is a charging
    cable and not just a data sync cable.

    Thanks for your response. Well his cable will work both ways on my phone but there may be a difference with the way LG uses the usb port and also this is not an LG cable. It's an after market brand.
