Question about Motorola Mobility E815
I've had my Motorola E815 for about a year now and somethings happened to it where I can't charge it using the phone charger. I'm sure some of the pins connecting the charger slot on the bottom of the phone have been broken off of the circuit board. Now I'm unable to charge it and desperately looking for another way to charge it, or for a separate lithium ion battery charger which charges on the battery itself. If anyone knows a solution to my problem or knows where I can get a battery charger that doesn't hook up to the phone through the 3 pin slot, I'd greatly appreciate it.
Don't use a car charger it messes with it sends it wrong signals

The E815 has a very poor design on the charger port. The cleaning that Solution #1 referred to is that Verizon cleans the contacts of both the phone and the charger using rubbing alcohol on a toothbrush to clean both the phone contacts and the charger contacts. I have to do this once a week or so to keep my phone charging. The rubbing alcohol dries quickly and will not harm the phone. Motorola has changed the charging ports on the newer phones because they recognize that they have a problem with this design. I have also turned in my phone to Verizon (twice) for a replacement. If you replace the phone be careful to record ALL your contacts because when Verizon transfers your contacts from the old to the new phone the speed dial numbers all get messed up because they start their numbering differently than you had it. I am still repairing my speed dial numbers. Hope this helps.

I had the same problem but for some reason was able to use one of those Energizer battery chargers but no others!! I took it to Verizon and they cleaned the pins. Try using a toothbrush to clean it. That worked for awile then stopped. I took it to them againa and since it was still under warranty, they gave me a new one!
