I have the same problem with my enV my friend stripped the wires to my charger at the part where you plug it into the phone so now to charge my phone i tape the red wire to the positive on the battery and the black wire to the negitive there will be a shiny metal goldish color thing (there like 4 lil gold bars) on your battery that looks like this --> (negative) | | | | (positive) | - | | | + | tape the wires on the outside were the symbols are - and + and try not to let it toch the middle bars on the battery or it wont work and dont cover the little bars up with tape put the battery back in the phone making sure the wires dont move to much and it should charge sometimes you got tape the battery onto the phone to make sure it doesnt pop out but its what i do and it saves you money on having to go buy a whole new one or if you know someone with the same phone give them your battery to charge it :)

Go to and buy the universal charger. It charges the battery directly, no need for the charging port.

I contacted LG directly. I am on my 3rd. phone since July 2007. I believe that they should recall all of the EnV phones and replace the data/charging ports, because it is obviously a manufacturers defect.

If you can't solder it back on the board you can buy a universal externalcellphone battery charger. They work I have 3 of them. They have them for car charger and wall charger. Unfortunately you cannot use the phone if you are charging the battery unless you have a spare.

I very first got the EnV, when it had just been shown to the public. And within ONE week of having it, the charging port broke. There was absolutely no reason it could have broke, unless being a manufacturers malfunction. We took it to the Verizon store, and they gave us a new phone, because it was under a warranty.I got my phone taken away by my mother about a week later, due to a massive overage on the bill. She used it for over a year, with no problems. When I finally could have it back, I decided I wanted the LG Dare. But that phone didn't fit my fancy, so I switched back to the Env, mostly for the keyboard. Now I have had it again for probably.. 4 months. The charging in general has been iffy for some time. Both due to the charger and the phone. But tonight, the port decided to completely bust. So now, I have to go back to the Dare, which I loaned to one of my friends. And this is creating far too many issues. The EnV's should have been recalled and the problem fixed. Because with THIS many people having issues, it's become a massive issue. I don't recommend the EnV, whatsoever,

Before you conclude that its the charging port i think you need to test another compartible charger and see if it works or you could open your phone with a phone screwdriver and dust the charging port and try it if it works.If it doesn't work then you would need to replace the charging port.Temporarily you can use a desktop charger to charge your batterywhile the port is being replace.

Phone broken

manufacturers defect, take it in and get it replaced if its less than one year old. Just say that you unplugged it and now it broke. If they still say no, go to another store and get the tech insurance and then take it in, pay $50 deductable and get a new one.

Charger port

Go to They sell a battery charger that doesn't require the battery to be attached to the phone. This will work for the LG EnV phone. $17.00 + $3.95 shipping. Case closed.

Env help plz

The reason the phone won't charge is because the internal power port pins are broken off of their solder joints to the main board inside the phone. Wiggling it helps at first because the pins can still touch their connection points but after a short time that will cease to help. Google "cell phone repair". It usually cost around $50 to get it fixed with a new power port installed. Turn-around is usually 2-3 days.

Charger port problem

or google BTC-UNI

iT'S little cheesy but hey for $10 and free shipping I can eat a lot of cheese.

Just plug your battery into this little clugy thing, plug the thing into the wall, wait until battery is charged and then put your battery back into your phone...presto...for this kind of money who cares if the VX9900 has a dead battery charge port.

I bought two, they were on sale for $7 each. It's ugly and takes a bit of patience but it works.
