    Default Galaxy S3: My phone doesn't charge on the wall

    Hi everyone.
    I have this big issue, since last night my Galaxy S3 doesn't charge when it's plugged to my wall charger, the battery icon shows it's charging but in reality it's not, my phone was almost dead this morning.
    Howevery, it does really charge when I use my usb cable in my computer.
    By the way, the wall charger is just fine, it works in my tablet and other phones, so does anyone know what this problem could be?

    I'm sorry if it's been asked before, I searched and found no thread with a problem exactly like mine.

    Does it charge when connected to a computer or other USB port? If not, then there could be something wrong with the phones port. Also, are you using the charger that came with the device? I'd still suggest trying another charger even though that one works with other devices.

    When connected to a computer.
    I do think the problem is with the phone's port, and yes it's the original charger than came with inside the box.
    I will try with another charger and update if it works or not.

    Sorry, I'm confused. Is the problem with the phone not charging to the wall charger (plugged into the wall outlet) or with it not charging to the computer with USB cable?
