Are they all shit?

My other half has a brick (Nokia N73) she's had it for a year now and needs to buy her THIRD charger! They seem to break where the lead goes into the plug, and you have to spend about 5 minutes wriggling the stupid lead around until it decided to charge!

Is there any way you can use the Nokia charger from the old school phones with an adapter for the bit that plugs into your phone? One of my phones is a Nokia 7250, which I actually like because it's super lightweight, doesn't crash, and both the phone and charger have been going strong for YEARS!

And yes, the chargers break like mad, I have a universal one from Tescos forboth in the car and inn the house - both of them much better than the Nokia ones and cheaper.

sam ill sort you out wit adapter and nokia charger cheap, your local too

aC-4x do seem to be weaker than usual but ive had most makes of phones and found sony worst! My nokia charger is from nov 2006 and works fine. I would recommend old charger & adapter as wire is thicker and more rugged
