Question about Cell Phones

Open Question

I have a new-ish LG phone with a new battery through Verizon and it has a really bad charger connection, and it either won't charge or charges only halfway . I have already been through a nightmare with so many crappy new phones just in this past year. Do I have to buy yet another p.o.c. phone that prob will break after 3 uses, or not work right from the get-go? I have NOT dropped it, spilled anything on it, left it in the sun, etc. I don't have the money to buy a new or a fancier phone. In the past, have people been able to get this problem repaired on the phone? I think its the connection inside the phone, not the charger. Thanks, Jody

My Lg is not keeping charge, and I bought a new Battery and it still wont charge or keep charge. Please Advise.


A charging problem could be due to a bad battery, corrosion on the battery contacts (you can clean them with rubbing alcohol) a bad charger or the charger plug on the phone. I would try replacing the charger and checking the connects.

My phone wont turn on or charge even tho i charged it all night


It sounds like you need to replace your battery. But first, if you're using a home charger, try charging the phone with a car charger (or vice versa). If the problem is not with your charger, then replace your battery.

When you get your new battery:
1) Make sure you are using the proper charger for your phone (not one of the cheep $5 kind), and
2) charge your battery for at least 12 hours before you use it for the first time.

Battery Won't Stay Charged


well if you have recieved new batteries and they wont stay charged then the problem isn't the batteries apparently. It could possibly be that your charger has gone bad and isn't charging your battery all the way. I suggest buying a new charger and it should fix your problem and if it's not your charger then it must be the outlet supplying voltage to the charger going bad. More than likely you need a new charger cause it seems like its not getting the voltage it needs to charge your phone.

Env2 charger wont fit in the hole and wont charge my phone


The issue is the charger port on the ENV2 breaks fairly easily. Thefirst step is to contact your carrier to see if it is covered underwarranty. If it is, great get it replaced.

If not, you have 3 options:

1. you can get the charging port repaired. The cost is about 50 dollars. I recommend Cellulardr.com

2. you can get a new phone. cost ???

3. You can get an external battery charger to charger the battery separatefrom phone. cost about 25 dollars. Check out the following link forones that are available on ebay. A extra battery is a good idea as well so you can have one charging at all times.

Wont charge


your charging port is loosely connected to *********** board. You need to go to a repair shop and get it fixed.

My daughter's LG EnV charging port


You can get a charger at factorydirectcellular.com. The link is
http://www.factorydirectcellular.com/home/universal/universal-battery-only-charger.htm

The charger charges the battery independent of the phone. It is the only one I have found and it works GREAT. I had a couple issues at first but the rep, Matt, bent over backwards to resolve them. I would recommend this charger and company to anybody. The charger is a universal charger and will charge other cell phone batteries as well. The only con is that it does take a little longer to charge than using the port.
