    Default Defective charging port?

    I recently received a refurbished photon since I lost the one I purchased but starting yesterday when I connected my phone to the charger it was slow to charge it and now when it reaches full battery it starts to flash the message when you disconnect your cable from your phone after its fully charged and stops Charing while still connected to the charger

    I've done reboots battery pulls and draining the battery and Charing from zero but still does the same thing

    Should I call sprint and ask to send a replacement or is it a simple setting change

    I'm just throwing this out there, but maybe it could be something with ur usb cable. this happened to me when I had the EVO 4G, I would notice it flickering, so I connected the cable to another device and it wouldn't do anything. I also tried using that same cable to connect the EVO to my computer and it wouldn't show as being hooked up. I ended up buying a new usb cable/charger from HTC and that solved my issue..but like I said, I'm just throwing this idea out there, maybe somebody else has another solution...

    I order several replacement chargers and cables at once when I go on Amazon. I find Smasung 6' cables (OEM, not cheesy replacements) regularly for around a buck, and chargers with cable for about $3. So I can order 5a for less than the cost of one at Wally World or anywhere else. I prefer the USB block chargers with replaceable cables, as being in a semi can be rough on the cables.

    Did you really leave a cord in that hotel, or was that a scam to get a cord for free? If the latter, I am disgusted by your obvious lack of morals.

    I'm sure he'll be really happy that his mother is here to scold him. I'm sure your life is perfect and you've never used any loopholes.

    Happy to be of service. And please explain how lying to obtain something you don't own is a "loophole", as opposed to theft?

    That's not a "loophole" it's theft, plain and simple.

    Good God. I'm sure no one was coming back for a cable.

    You could call it theft but hotels get a lot of charging cords I left a cord at a hotel and after work that day I went back for it and they threw a big box of cords on the desk and said check if any of these will work. It was pretty hilarious
