Phone not charging
Had charging port replaced and its not charging. Although plugged in battery continues to drain. I know there are battery apps and such do they help and if so what would you recommend? Very frustrated with this phone. It's my livelihood and my sole connection to the world

Re: Phone not charging
if it's not charging a battery app won't help. At best, they can slow the drain, but they can't add power to the battery.
Charging problems are usually one of a few things:
Bad charging port: it's possible the repair is faulty
Bad charger. Any micro USB charger will work, so try a different one. Or plug the USB cable into a computer, instead of the charger
Bad USB cable. Samsung's cables are pretty cheap. Try a different cable, both in a PC and in the charger.
If you know someone else with an S3, try swapping batteries, but I don't that's the problem.
If different chargers and cables don't make a difference, I think you need to take your phone back to whoever repaired it and tell them they screwed up.BROKE MY WRIST AND TYPING ONE-HANDED! Please forgive all typos.
PLEASE, when asking for help provide as much information as possible. Otherwise, it's like calling your doctor and saying "My head hurts." Your doctor can't treat you unless he knows whether you have a headache or a concussion, and we can't help unless we know what the symptoms are and what you did before they occurred.
Give a person an answer, and you've solved one problem. Teach a person to search, and you have helped them solve problems forever.
