Hi, I have a Motorola E680i. While charging it, it fell and apparently few hours later when I checked the port (for the charger) it was a bit loose (didn't realise this when I took it off the charger). Since then I have not been able to use the charger cable to charge it. The USB cable works inconsistently - if I 'jiggle' the cord a bit and not disturb it, it 'may' charge. Last night when I did this I woke up this morning to find the phone blank and refusing to turn on. Took out the battery this evening and used a universal charger, tried it again and now it's working.
Help! I REALLY love this phone. Is it a battery problem or the port for the charger that is a problem?
Your assistance is gretaly appreciated.
First see if you can get the port on the store. Or may be the glue can fix any cracks to make it work;) but advice on glue: use wisely ! If nothing works, contact me , anyway you have the USB charging system as backup

I experienced the very same problem twice. The red led would either stayed on all the time when charger was connected or it blink whenever I'd push the power button on the phone, but the phone would not turn on. My solution was to unplug the charger, take out the battery and the sim, keep them separated for at least 48-72 hours, then put back the battery, connect the charger again (don't use your computer's usb port, use a real wall charger, preferably the original one), turn on the phone. If it doesn't turn on immediately, let it charge for a few hours and then try to turn it on. I revived this phone twice using this method, first time I thought I was just lucky, but apparently it's reproducible.
If your phone is still under warranty the best solution is to get it replaced.The problem is actually with the port of the charger.I mean the hole in which you plug in your charger isn't working properly.Where as your USB port is different and works properly so it charges the battery.So you will have to get this repaired.
The regular Motorola website doesn't seem to admit the existance of the E680i, so that wasn't a very big help. There does seem to be reviews and opinions here and there, but they aren't much help to your problems.
Further off the beaten path is the "MotoDev" site that not only knows your phone is real, it also has a list of software tools and specifications that are likely to be useful to you.
In the "Related Content" list on the right is "Using the MOTODEV SIMConfig Tool", which may help you accomplish what you want to do, regarding the international settings...
Here is the URL: -->
Also, looking at T-mobiles websites & resources, I came up with the specifications that your phone needs to have in order to connect to the "T-Mobile data services such as T-MobileWeb, picture and video messaging, and T-Mobile Internet". (Quoted from the T-mobile website.)
You will have to enter these settings manually into your phone, because the T-mobile "wireless configurator" does not list your model of phone and won't send them to your phone automatically.
URL with settings info here: -->
There are a few more settings to manually enter under the link that says "Camera Phone Picture Messaging Settings" in the "Related Info" box.
(I tried to just post those settings here, but there's some restriction to the FixYa message posting that keeps rejecting this text. Still, going to these links will get you the info you need....)
Hope this helps answer your questions! ;)
Hi try pulling out the battery for a few min and later when you put back the battery , keep your phone for charging. Then try switching off and off when the charging is taking place. Hopefully it should solve the problem.
