    Default Phone wont charge

    Hi, my phone has recently stopped charging and having a conneciton with the charger. at first i could fix it by restarting my phone and plugging it in right away but now it shows the charging iconin the top right but it does not say that it is charging on the lock screen . I have plugged it in for an hour without gaining a charge.

    Welcome to the forums.
    Have you tried a different cable or wall charger?

    You are probably right. Downside is sometimes fixing these things is more expensive than replacing the device. Have you asked around for repair shops, or even SAmsung?

    i also read on a few websites that it is common to have dust in the port that makes a faulty connection, i tried blowing it out with compressed air but the problem still persists.

    Good idea, but it probably is damaged. Bummer though.
