Hi, my name is Andre, and I have a dilemma. My usb port broke on my n900. I got the green light to send it in for repair. However, I was wondering if there was a alternate way of charging it. I.e, through the 3.5mm jack by chance? The phone died before I could xfer my info to the memory card and I really need to access it. Any feedback is greatly appreciated.. Thanks again.

well, maybe you can find a friend with a similar phone to charge the battery, or borrow theirs.

Yes!!. Sad part is, none of my friends have a n900 or anything similar. Is there a standalone charger for the battery?

By "phone died before I could xfer my info to the memory card" do you mean the battery was empty?
Or was N900 really broken?

I bought a second BL-5J battery which would probably help in this case if it was only the emtpy batt.

Battery empty. I apologize for the misunderstanding. However, I've found the stand alone chargers on ebay. All it took was a little nudge, and light bulb influence from you guys!! :P Thanks a lot.

I searched for a desktop charger and found only
non Nokia ones like this one:

I asked Nokia support about standalone charger/desktop charger.
They told me that there is none from Nokia.

Great find!!
Unfortunately, I highly doubt that they were telling the truth. I went on ebay and searched for Nokia BL-5J standalone charger and got results. Below is a link to one of them..
