If your cell phone did not come with a charger (a cord with a connection to your cell phone and a male electrical plug on the other end to plug into a wall electrical outlet), then you will need to purchase one that will work with your model phone. You can purchase one from your cell phone provider or you may be able to find one at your local "big box" store.
You may also wish to purchase a cell phone charger which can be used in your car by connecting to the car "cigarette lighter" outlet and connecting to your phone on the other end. Just think how you would charge your phone without electricity.
You may also wish to find and purchase an "emergency" cell phone charger, for "just in case" situations.
You can charge the garmin satnav with either the car charger when the car is running, an optional mains charger or you can charge it through the USB port of a computer. It takes around 8 hours to charge through a computer or 4 from a car or mains charger.
May be the charger/cord in not functioning.
Please try to charge with another charger. If it gets charged it will confirm that the cord/charger is faulty.
Also check the power outlets. Check that they are functional.
Generally the the power plugs do not fit properly in the wall outlets thus creating this problem. This can be checked if the charging light gets lighted when you plug in.
My guess is that the charging port in your phone has gone bad. By holding it a certain way, you may be reconnecting it just enough to make the connection. Probably have a loose or broken wire inside your phones port. You may also see this is a problem if you try to hook it up to a pc.
I had the same problem. What caused it was the cable I bought at Radio Shack. I fit into the slot at the back of the device and into a usb outlet. But it was not a usb cable despite this. It was a battery charger. My computer did not detect the device though it recharged its battery. As soon as I purchased a usb cable at Radio Shack that connected to the same outlets as the charger, I was able to register.
If the charger is plugged in, the phone is hooked to it, and it still will not come on, I would think it's a charger or electrical outlet problem. I think most phones will bypass the battery power if they are plugged into an outlet, so try another wall plug, and if that wasn't it, try a different charger. If a different outlet and charger don't solve it, it may be time to take it to the store to be checked.
