One of the features of the GNEX that I really wanted is the charging contacts. I plug and unplug my phone a lot when getting in and out of the car. I have started to notice that at night when checking time or voice mail the dim clock face wakes up when I pick up or lay my phone down. This is due to the charging port losing contact momentarily. I wonder if we will get car and desk top chargers before we are eligible for an upgrade. Is anybody else experiencing this?
I have had to replace several usb cables as they start to fail.
Not sure if this is the receptacle or the cable. A new cable fixes the problem until it starts to fail.
Was about to say the same thing....I had this problem on my Droid Charge, turned out to be the cable and not the phone. If this is only happening at your house try switching the cable......maybe you can get lucky.
I would also love to have the 3 point car and charging docks, hopefully soon.
Hopefully it's just a cable. I had a friend that had a usb port on a LG go bad years ago and they wouldn't cover it. He was pissed because charging your phone falls under "normal use" in his book, but LG didn't see it that way. (fail)
One of the things I loved about the Palm Touchstone chargers. You can simply place the phone on the charger to charge and grab it when it't time to go. No fussing around with wires. I have several so modified my GN to work with them and posted a guide which you can see in my signature. They only charge at USB rate so there are times you might need plug the phone in but it's not very often.
I think inductive charging will become a standard at some point. Powermat and Energizer already have products on the market, but I think more OEMs will catch on at some point.
I noticed how snug the OEM wall charger was when I got this phone. The car charger connector always seem to fail at some point. Why can't someone make a car charger with the same connector as the wall charger?
