Re: power jack

HUH?!!?!? ... If you take it to a Verizon corp. store it shouldn't cost no more then 50 bucks to replace so long as it's not liquid damaged and within 2 years of purchase date.

Whoever told you 200 bucks was about to pop open your phone and play bar room mechanic on it. Cell phones these days are no long the "pop open and fix em " types ... You do more damage to a cell phone opening it up and trying to fix anything. Hence why all manufacturers now just replace broken electronics ... NOT "fix them"

Hope this helps.

Lg chocolate vx8500 cellular broken screen

Buy a screen. Many online retailers sell them, but ebay is the best place. Buy a phone for parts/repair, and make sure the screen is working. It might cost you $10-$15. There are many tutorials online on how to open up your phone, but it's not easy. Good luck!

Charging jack

I had the exact same problem and unless you know how to open up the phone and solder the connections back, which by the way are micro in size, the phone is pretty much dead. I had to take mine in and swap it out it still barely had a warranty. Try looking up a local electronics repair shop who might be able to help, good luck.
