    i actually found a solution to my own problem, this seems to be a big problem with this phone. it does this when it gets wet or it can happen rendomly. if it happens randomly i found that if you stick a butter knife into where you plug the charger into and short some of the contacts it will fix this promlem. you might have to do some fiddleing with it but if that doesn't work then really the only thing you can do is take it to get it fixed.
