    Default Anyone wear out their charging port?

    I've had my AT&T Note since mid-March and loved every minute of it. Recently however, it hasn't been fully charging, it'll get to 99% and stop, never reaching the 100% and the notification displaying. Then I noticed that it'd charge to 100% randomly. I started playing with the cable base and it'd keep charging and the charging notification would keep going on an off. I tried 3 or 4 different cables, same effect. Busted out the compressed air, same thing. Also, using current widget, it was charging at like .3 amps all the time. Would this be a warranty claim? My Note is pretty beat up on the corners from falling off my Ruckus, before I got a case, but no water damage or anything. Would they deny warranty because of the corners? have insurance but would rather not pay $199 deductible every 6 months.

    I did have the exact same troubles - sorry I did not see this thread till now. I had the exact same symptoms, tried the very same solutions you recommend above as well (compressed air et al). For a while some chargers seemed to work better than others, the car dock always seemed to work and then all of a sudden nothing worked even the car dock. I believe it's a warranty claim - I was "lucky" I bought mine at Best Buy and bought the insurance. I just went into the store and had a replacement in 2 days. When I went there the associate at Best Buy told me this problem happens with a lot of phones that use micro USB to charge the phone, he showed me how the port basically separates from the main board after some time, and it doesn't seem to matter if you're careful or not.

    Well, I'm an *****. I have my charger behind my nightstand and I thought I had it plugged in all the way into the wall outlet. Apparently I yanked it out when I pulled it toward my bed at some point.

    What you can do is go on ebay and buy spare batteries + charger and just swap out your battery any time you are out of juice. I was in need of some extra batteries and I got 2 batteries + charger for 9.99 and don't even use my usb charger anymore...I just swap out the battery. I urge you to take this route as well =]

    I had the exact same problem and i took it into the AT&T store and explained to the employee what the problem was and he told me the phone has a 1 year warranty and to take it to an AT&T service center but they may not cover it because i could have damaged it. So i took it to the service center and the guy was really nice and he swapped me out the phone no problem. For free. If you havent taken care of it yet this is what you need to do... Good Luck
