 'm confused. Are you talking about the 6-pin/4-pin USB wire that doesn't fit?  
If that's what you're referring to, then you might want to try again. It does
fit, although the at first glance it might not appear to.

If you're talking about the wall-charger wire, I have no input for you on that
one since I'm in the US and it fits perfectly.

Sorry for the repost.

Yes I can charge the phone with USB and yes the cable will connect to
the wall with a converting. However always charging over USB isn't
always convenient.

However the socket to the phone is incompatible with the phone. It
physically doesn't fit, different shape.

 f you look at the FAQ of brightstar ( you will see the phone only gets
shipped with a US cable... the easiest solution if you want to "wall charge"
it is buy an adapter. You can buy them in any electronics store, it's just a
little piece converting the US socket to a xxx socket.

2. RIM And Nokia Respond To Apple's Antennagate Press Conference [Attenuation]

tingkah Jobb yang sudah kehabisan akal untuk defense

RIM and Nokia have responded to Apple's claim that all smartphones
have the same attenuation and signal loss issue that the iPhone 4 has.
Here's what they said:

RIM's co-CEO's Mike Lazaridis and Jim Balsillie:

    "Apple's attempt to draw RIM into Apple's self-made debacle is
unacceptable. Apple's claims about RIM products appear to be
deliberate attempts to distort the public's understanding of an
antenna design issue and to deflect attention from Apple's difficult
situation. RIM is a global leader in antenna design and has been
successfully designing industry-leading wireless data products with
efficient and effective radio performance for over 20 years. During
that time, RIM has avoided designs like the one Apple used in the
iPhone 4 and instead has used innovative designs which reduce the risk
for dropped calls, especially in areas of lower coverage. One thing is
for certain, RIM's customers don't need to use a case for their
BlackBerry smartphone to maintain proper connectivity. Apple clearly
made certain design decisions and it should take responsibility for
these decisions rather than trying to draw RIM and others into a
situation that relates specifically to Apple."


    "Antenna design is a complex subject and has been a core
competence at Nokia for decades, across hundreds of phone models.
Nokia was the pioneer in internal antennas; the Nokia 8810, launched
in 1998, was the first commercial phone with this feature.

    Nokia has invested thousands of man hours in studying human
behavior, including how people hold their phones for calls, music
playing, web browsing and so on. As you would expect from a company
focused on connecting people, we prioritize antenna performance over
physical design if they are ever in conflict.

    In general, antenna performance of a mobile device/phone may be
affected with a tight grip, depending on how the device is held.
That's why Nokia designs our phones to ensure acceptable performance
in all real life cases, for example when the phone is held in either
hand. Nokia has invested thousands of man hours in studying how people
hold their phones and allows for this in designs, for example by
having antennas both at the top and bottom of the phone and by careful
selection of materials and their use in the mechanical design."

Nokia didn't mention Apple by name (probably because Apple never
mentioned them) but made a point to say that Nokia is a company that
"prioritizes antenna performance over physical design". We can assume
they think Apple has it the other way around.
