Re: Sony Xperia T not charging with certain USB cables
Had that problems on my previous phone with many cables, but those didn't show until I started being wreckless.
I think damage was incurred on the connector's contacts from using a corroded cable too often. The cable "lived" permanently connected in a truck, and got muddy on the floor a few times when not plugged into the phone. I cleaned it up like anyone would, using a cloth and then blowing inside the connector to get some of the crap out. When the phones started acting up and being particular about the cable used, I stopped using this cable, and any that wouldn't work, and bought a few premium cable that I had tested at the stored prior to purchase.
Now you may simply have damaged cables on your hands, but whatever the case, I recommend not using anything that needs "fidgeting" to work. If it doesn't work, don't use it or buy It.
In my case, I dumbly insisted an one day, while at work, my phone just wouldn't take a charge anymore, so I had to take time off in a mad dash to get a new phone so I would be able to retrieve my data prior to it's battery dying, taking my precious data along with it. Needless to say, my boss was not impressed, and neither was my wallet....
