Same thing happened to a buddy of mine with his 8330. Get a desk charger and only use the USB port for syncing and backups.

Wirelessly posted (VZW 8330)

I charge my 8330 every day and I've never had a problem. I got it when it first came out, too. Weird.

You just have to be careful when plugging and unplugging. I haven't heard of the 8330 having a widespread issue with this.

Agreed. I have had several 8830's with this issue.

88xx is known to have issues with the way the port is mounted within the device

If your computer has bluetooth, you can use it to back up your stuff with desktop manager. If not, you can get a bluetooth adapter for very cheap.
