    When I plug my charger in, I have to move it all around to get it in the exact right position so my phone will charge. Usually I have to push down on it to make it charge. I think it's a problem with the charging port.

    I also have to move my LG Chocolate's charger all around to get it to charge...and then make sure it doesn't get bumped or moved or it will stop charging. I believe the previous poster is right about the problem being with the port. When I pull the charger out, sometimes part of the phone comes with it and I have to stick it back in the port hole and sort of scrape it off the charger. Then next time, same thing, put the charger in, move it all around until it starts charging. It seems to be getting harder to find a position that it charges in though.

    I have the same problem. My LG chocolate is starting to not charge at all. I have to move the phone around for atleast 20minutes to get it in the right position to charge. Im trying to wait out for 2 more weeks for my free upgrade. But i dont think its gonna last that long.

You can go to a cellular repair store in order to get the charger port fixed. Some places my charge and arm and leg to do so you have to look around and compare prices. I know I found on place that said they would do it for $75 and another that siad they would do it for $35. Some stores that sell cell phone accessories may fix it but you should call and find out everything before you make that drive and make sure you compare prices.

The charger port is loose, there is nothing you can do but get a new phone. I had to do that on my first Chocolate and I think I'm going to have to do it again.

My phone wont turn on or charge even tho i charged it all night

It sounds like you need to replace your battery. But first, if you're using a home charger, try charging the phone with a car charger (or vice versa). If the problem is not with your charger, then replace your battery.

When you get your new battery:
1) Make sure you are using the proper charger for your phone (not one of the cheep $5 kind), and
2) charge your battery for at least 12 hours before you use it for the first time.

Lg chocolate

you can try to take out the back part of your phone (the battery pack) and put it back in and try starting it up and if that still doesn't work you can try and replace it but if that doesn't work you should take it to your verizon store and ask them....are you sure it's charge....u can also try putting it on the charger for about 10 minutes and see if that helps..
