    Hi Jim
    It is surface mount. You are right. It is so small my smallest tip will not work.

    Hi Otacon,
    Thanks for the link. I still need the instructions for removing and reinstalling the mini port. Any ideas?

    I bent one of the prongs in the usb charger for my v3. Now I need to replace it to charge the phone. What do you suggest?

    Do you have the replacement part?

    Many of these parts are surface mount components and can not be easily soldered with a standard soldering iron.

    Replacement of surface mount parts require heating the component and lifting it up from the printed circuit board. The same process is required to install a new part. The leads are very small and can not be soldered with a standard iron.

    Some of these parts have leads on the bottom of the part making it impossible to even gain access with a standard iron.

    If you have the new part, is it a surface mount part or leaded part?

Here's some pages you might want to look at.

I have seen people use a paint stripper heat gun or heat shrink gun to desolder/solder SMT parts too.

For v3 razr charger can you use it with htc touch pro 2? it fits mini usb. Are voltages and amps similar?

USB Voltage is always 5V. That is standard. As far as your charger for your V3, different motorola chargers have different ampere or mA, but I wouldn't worry about it, you cannot overpower the Touch, it just may charge slower if the charger for the V3 is a weak one.

Other than that though, if it fits USB, you should definitely be fine.

Check out this link below to download a PDF manual, software, and more for your phone. Just copy and paste into your browser.

From your manual page 2:
Mini-USB Port Insert stereo headset, battery charger, & other phone accessories.

You can transfer files using your Bluetooth option on page 26 of your manual. I use a USB linking cable but you need to look a the software downloads on the link above. The USB cable connects into the same port your battery charger goes into.

Hope this helps, let me know if I can do anything else for you.

Phone to computer or printer transfer

The easiest solution for you is to get a mini usb cable,,it has a standard usb plug to go to computer on one end,and a mini usb plug on the phone end,,,same as the plug on your phone charger,,then you can transfer files easy.
