    Default Loose charging port

    Is anybody else getting a loose charging port on their Tbolt? Mine is kinda getting loose, but I'm not quite sure if it's going to affect charging anytime soon. Has anybody had their port fail on them?

    I hope it's just the charger. I love this phone way too much. I also just removed insurance from my line, so hopefully nothing goes wrong.

    I recently noticed that charging cord that came with the Seidio charger fits loosely in the port and can disconnect. OEM Data cables fit tight and stay connected with phone movement.

    From my experience, it's mostly about the molding surrounding the plug. Different manufacturers have moldings of different dimensions. I've used numerous charging systems/cables. I typically use three each day. Sometimes four if I charge in the car. They all fit slightly different as far as "looseness" is concerned. But all of them work very well. I think there is a good chance you are worrying yourself about nothing. But... of course, there is always that truly bad cable out there. Or bad port on a phone. But unless you are experiencing some actual difficulty I would not mess with it.
