Good points on the BB service. I have no doubt they make things difficult to lock people into buying extra data plans and/or phones. The phone works very well with a few hacks. It is possible to get rid of the access screens for surfing the web so it's not like they couldn't issue a firmware update to alleviate it for the lay people.

As far as a data cable that charges I have thought about this a little bit. When I compare the ends on my wall charger to the ends on the data cable it is apparent why it doesn't charge. There are 3 or 4 wires missing on the data cable that are clearly the power wires. I have been considering trying to make a frankenstein connector by splicing these two connectors together but I have a feeling it would be extremely difficult to deal with those tiny wires. Will keep you posted if I ever try.
