My phone is less than a year old and already doesn't want to charge. It acts like its the charging port. At first I could wiggle it into position and it would still charge a little. Now, nothing. I read somewhere to remove the battery and hold down the power button for 30 seconds, replace the battery and charge. It worked...once. After I touched it, it stopped charging and the same procedure would not make it charge again. Do I need to replace the port? Could it be something else? Please help.
Oh haleydcharley. I know having to wiggle the charger is no fun. .
Do you see any damage when you look at the port? You can use our How to check if your phone's USB port is damaged as a guide.
If there's no damage, have you tried using another charger? If it's under warranty, it's possible to have the entire phone replaced through T-Mobile instead of just the port.
