    I have had 2 new Rumors and basically had to buy new phones. I was told this was a defect,,,"Must be gentle with charging.." Yea tell that to 2 teenagers...If the phones were defective and they have restructured the port because they know its bad..we should be able to upgrade/trade for more functional models These phones are less than 6 monthsd old

    My phone started giving trouble charging about 3 months ago, and after a while, well. my screen would turn white when i would slide it open.

    I got tired of that after a while, so i brought my phone in for servicing. And the woman told me to put a $50 down pay on it. then should could fix it. I tried sending my phone in but neither sprint or lg will fix it.

    =[ what to do.

    My husband has had problems charging his phone from day one--the charger didn't seem to fit well into the port. Now, however, the charger won't connect at all.

You can buy a charger port on line i've seen some that cost as low as $2 they are very cheap. Then you have to solder the new charger port on and there you go. I'm in the process of fixing mine. I work with electrical engineers and my supervisor is going to teach me what I have to solder it to

Hello,

get a desktop charger and use it to charge the battery of your LG Rumor that its charger receptor broke.

Once the battery is full, you can then turn on the phone and get the information needed on the phone.

Check the link below, in order to have an idea of what a desktop looks like.

You need to get this replaced, it is a manufacturer's defect so make sure to let the sales staff know and don't pay anything for a replacement!!

Cannt get the charger to charge the phone


What you need to do is go onto Ebay and get a universal cell phone charger, and another battery. The universal charger plugs into the wall and directly charges the battery, without the phone's charging port. With an extra battery you can create a cycle so that you never have to wait for a battery to get done charging. This is what I do since my enV broke, and it works well. Just don't try it if you're impatient, because it takes roughly 12 hours to charge to full power.

My LG rumor 2 wont charge. I havent dropped it or anything it just doesnt charge. How do i fix it?


Mine did that too. it's probably a short in the charger or the charging port. Take it to a US cellular store with a repair desk, they replaced mine for free.

The charging port came completely off on my LX260


you can't repair the charging port because those wires a litterally sautered into the computer board. Potentially you could take the motherboard out of the inside of the cracked screen phone and put it into the charger port phone. Make sure you use the sticker from under the battery on the cracked screen phone and you'll have to get your service changed to that ESN. good luck.

My phone just randomly stopped charging!


The problem is with your charger, because of use, the wiring has grown loose.
I've had it happen with several of my cell phones. I suggest buying a new charger, keep the receipt and box, try it. If that's doesn't work, return it.
