    Hi,
    Just wondering if my old Blackberry usb wall charger will work safely with the iPhone 3g? Any power differences, etc?
    Thanks!

    I use that charger at work, no issues here. It's a standard usb "Plug" that pushes out the same power.

    I wouldn't try that - just because it has a USB plug doesn't mean it also outputs safe current.

    Agreed - my girlfriend's Blackberry will not charge from a PC or my HTC Tytn II wall charger once it gets really low on battery - I suspect that Blackberry uses the USB form factor but not the USB standards. Another reason to hate them:D
