Anyone else unable to charge their Touch Pro while you are tethering? Is there a solution to this?

Re: Touch Pro: Won't charge while tethering

Must be overheating again...

Slide the keyboard open, blow air to it and keep it cool.

Common problem of TP.

Re: Touch Pro: Won't charge while tethering

The usb cable does not charge fast enough to keep up with the data usage if you are doing a lot of downloading. It might not drain your battery, but if you tether with 50% battery, chances are you will still be around 50% or less when you stop tethering.

Re: Touch Pro: Won't charge while tethering

Is there a solution to fix this? And when I am using the Touch Pro as a WifiRouter it won't charge at all.

Re: Touch Pro: Won't charge while tethering

Update to the latest telus radio - see the updgrade section, i did this on my sprint tp and it run a little cooler...

also i use bluetooth for tethering, and keep the phone plugged into a wall charger, and it stays pretty much fully charged... i also keep the backlight off, and the phone proped on its side so heat can escape...

give a shot and post back ure results

Re: Touch Pro: Won't charge while tethering

Just curious, but when you click Start>Settings>, under the Battery tab, do you have a check by the "When device is turn on, do not charge the battery when connected to the PC"?
