    Try to clean the port with a dry soft toothbrush or canned air. Hope that helps.

    Might be the wrong charger (Voltage, mA) and it fried your battery. Original problem may have been a bad charger, or your battery telling you it was d-e-a-d.

    Sounds like the USB port is faulty. You might have to call Sprint to send out a new phone.

    If it is the charger , try the battery. If not then it is the charging port. And that can be repaired. And if needed replaced.
