    Other chargers

    I use a Samsung charger on my Droid phone. Is this bad for the phone? I've been told that I should not do this as it might harm the phone. I say if the cord/jack fits, use it! My Kindle charger even fits.

    I don't work for a phone company, so I guess I can't give you an "official" answer, but I don't think it will hurt the phone, so long as it fits properly. It seems like a lot of phones are using the same charger these days!

    Did the person that told you it would harm your phone tell you why it might do so? I'm just curious because I use an after market charger with my phone and I would hate to damage the phone or the battery by using the wrong charger for it.
