Question about LG enV VX9900 Cellular Phone

My daughter's LG EnV charging port

My daughter has an LG Env (VX9900) with a "worn" charging port. The AC charging unit plug needs to be wedged to keep the connection in charge mode.
Does ANYONE make a battery wall charger where we can simply swap batteries on a daily basis? (That's what I do with my Treo 700W and it works better than fiddling with a charger!!)
Maybe just me, but the charging plug on most cell phones is a real weak link. Forget the proprietary junk and just make a standard plug-in!
Thanks for your help.

    I just plug mine it at night, every few days, and sleep next to it, so i'm not touching it and it stays plugged in.

    I have a silver env that wont charge either... but I also Have a old orange env that I destroyed both screens on.. but batteries will still ccharge on it.

    so I just keep the orange one pluged in and swap batteries to the silver phone as I need them... so just try finding a old env that has broken screens/no service/ broken key board, and just use that phone as a charger.

    My EnV was very picky for a while but I could manage to prop it up and get it to charge after messing with it for a few minutes. Then it reached a point where I had to literally sit and hold the charger in the perfect position to get a charge. Now I have reached a point I am borrowing other family members phones because it is next to impossible to get my phone to charge. I might get a single bar but then if I flinch it stops charging and I can't get it to charge anymore.

    My EnV VX9900 has the same problem with the charge port. There seem to be WAY TOO MANY reports on the internet for this charge port problem. Verizon had better address it...or it will come back to haunt them.

    Third Verizon phone I've had that had charging problems. First had a flip phone that I loved (had it for dang near three years) and it finally started to have charging problems. First you would have to "jiggle the handle", ten it would get to the point like the other person said where you would have to hold it and babysit it. Went for replacement and found out Verizon dont make/offer that model anymore. So I upgraded to the enV, first one lasted about 9 months. Put a claim in through their Asurion insurance and they sent me a refurbished one (what a joke, this thing had a cracked LED, scratches all over the casing, the bluetooth wouldn't work and guess what, wont charge. Feel like a redneck sitting there jiggling the handle like a leaking toilet praying that the phone will charge. Got a second claim in, lets see what #4 will bring. Might just switch carriers, theirs a lot of new regional carriers that are a whole lot cheaper then Verizon, that use VZ towers and have decent phones.

    I have the same problem, unable to charge my phone "the piece where you plug the charger into your phone" is not working can't get the connection to charge. I don't understand why I have to pay $50 dollars for a new phone when this is not my fault, the piece inside my phone is malfunction; even if I don't have insurance this is a verizon problem and I believe they should replace my phone free...

    Verizon REALLY needs to pick up there game, before they loose alot of customer to PCs Metro.....right now that's what I'm thinking about doing if this problem does not get straigten out!!!

You can get a charger at The link is

The charger charges the battery independent of the phone. It is the only one I have found and it works GREAT. I had a couple issues at first but the rep, Matt, bent over backwards to resolve them. I would recommend this charger and company to anybody. The charger is a universal charger and will charge other cell phone batteries as well. The only con is that it does take a little longer to charge than using the port.

Easy fix. I had one that the charing port came off inside. Verizon wanted me to buy a new phone. All you have to do is pull it apart, straighten the pins and super glue it back on the pad. good as new.

Before you conclude that its the charging port i think you need to test another compartible charger and see if it works or you could open your phone with a phone screwdriver and dust the charging port and try it if it works.If it doesn't work then you would need to replace the charging port.Temporarily you can use a desktop charger to charge your batterywhile the port is being replace.

Env help plz

The reason the phone won't charge is because the internal power port pins are broken off of their solder joints to the main board inside the phone. Wiggling it helps at first because the pins can still touch their connection points but after a short time that will cease to help. Google "cell phone repair". It usually cost around $50 to get it fixed with a new power port installed. Turn-around is usually 2-3 days.

Charger port problem

or google BTC-UNI

iT'S little cheesy but hey for $10 and free shipping I can eat a lot of cheese.

Just plug your battery into this little clugy thing, plug the thing into the wall, wait until battery is charged and then put your battery back into your phone...presto...for this kind of money who cares if the VX9900 has a dead battery charge port.

I bought two, they were on sale for $7 each. It's ugly and takes a bit of patience but it works.
