X6 16GB - does USB cable allow battery charging from laptop PC?

About to replace 6500 Slide with X6 16gb, does anybody know if USB cable to laptop PC will allow charging or not? - like the 6500 Slide does not

I know a car cigar lighter charger might work but I'm a train/bus traveller

It would appear not, which is odd given that Nokia's one of the organisations which committed to switching to USB chargers exclusively. You can get a USB->2mm charger cable in lots of places though.

I can confirm that my newly purchased Nokia X6 16GB does NOT charge whilst connected to the USB port via the lead supplied in the box.

 

My previous 6600 Slide did so it is a step back for me.

 

The only step back I have found so far however as it is an Ace phone!

IT seems not. The battery symbol does not change and I think I received an answer from Nokia suppport that charging via USB cable is not possible for the 5230 phone. Same seems to apply for the X6, which is a real disappointment as you now always have to think of where your charger is. U can buy a USB - 2 mm charger, but this costs about 30 EUR (which is unacceptable high for a simple wire!!).
