    i have had the same problem with mine, i tried the charger on a friends phone to make sure it was the phone, which it was, and i have had to take it back to the shop and they have had to send it off to try to repair it.

    I had the same problem, it was the pins and it eventually broke. The whole piece on the inside for charging fell out. Called Samsung and they wont touch it saying it was my fault and it is a phone from overseas. It really sucks, spends so much for a phone and then cant use it or repair it. I have ordered a external wall mount charger that I found on Ebay cross your fingers that it will work. I cant see just giving this phone up when I paid so much for it. I only had it a week and the pins broke.

Unknown? now power to phone when plugged in. Didnt drop. No water damage, still like brand new. purchased 2 months ago.

I had a similar issue and it was a problem with the charging port. I suggest taking your device to your supplier and use warranty to fix.

My tocco does not turn on att all , no life, i press the power button and nothing happens , no matter what i try the screen doesnt come up :(

It sounds like you may have a battery or charging problem.

If you use a home charger try using a car charger to see if your home charger has become defective. Same if you use a car charger - use a home charger.

If neither charger charges the phone:

1) Take the battery out of the phone.
2) Look on the battery and locate the connector(s) that provide power from the battery to your phone.
3) Take a pencil eraser and (gently) use it to clean these contacts.
4) Replace your battery and turn your phone on.

If this doesn't work, take your phone to your cellular provider's service center to have the battery checked.

Note: Battery's purchased on the retail market can cost up to $50.00. However, many batteries are sold on eBay for less than $7.00...

I have a Storm 9530. One evening I plugged my phone into my wall charger (not computer) to charge and when I woke up the next morning... low and behold the infamous battery with red line showed on the...

It could be the charger, the phone's power interface, or your battery. When you plug the phone in to charge it, does it recognize the charger and show the lightning bolt symbol for charging?

If you use your computer's USB port to charge it instead of the wall charger, does it act any differently?

Wont charge or is locked

if you plug the charger in and you can see the battery bars going up and down then it is phone problem if the scrren is blank then it is either the charger but if you have a car charger aswell and both chargers worked before then it is probably the phone that has a problem check where the charger plugs in that their is nothing blocking the terminals like fluff or bit of paper check that none of the terminals are bent or coroded if you have used phone in rain they might have got coroded this can be solved by cleaning the terminals on the charging part of the phone but be carefull when you do this not to wreck any thing check the charger make sure nothing bent or blocking the charge the problem with these phone is the pins on the bottom where the charger plugs in these get damaged really easily and they can be replaced but will have to take to phone shop and get repaired hope this is some help to you....................................
