Question about T-Mobile MDA
My phone can't charge from the port again and i can'nt access it through the usb cord on my laptop.How do i open up the phone to be able to reach where the usb port is attached.
The MDA aka HTC Wizard aka Cingular 8125 has a design & manufacturing defect where the internal USB connector breaks eventually. It is mounted directly to the circuit board which actually cracks and breaks. Mine broke after 13 months. Other users report this happening within a few months of purchase. T-Mobile/HTC will not fix this under warranty. Some companies have quoted hundreds of dollars to fix. Look on ebay and you will see hundreds of these offered for sale in lots with no other problem than broken USB.
CLASS ACTION SUIT ANYONE??
The USB port does not just charge the battery, this is a Windows Mobile PPC and the port is 100% essential for normal operation.
Looking for service manual/ dissasembly guide and fixing ideas.

Try other USB ports on your comptuer and try it on another computer before trying to open it up

The best solution which i had this problem happen to me was to look up a guide on how to take it apart and i held it right side up and sprayed the port with contact cleaner and let it drain rightside up the next morning it worked but only for few months now trying to find another solution to get it to work again besides charging the battery externally through a spare battery charger hope it helps
