Hey guys you might have seen my post earlier. I posted it in the wrong forum. .-. Haha.
But anyways. Put simply, my nosy cousin ripped my phone off of the charger because she was trying to see who was texting. And I think it ruined my charging port. It charges verly slowly and disconnects easily if you move the chord around. Do you guys think I should get my port replaced or could it have also damaged my chord?

Get your nosy cousin to spring for the ~$600 that it'll cost to purchase a brand new phone and see how she treats your stuff in the future...

You can send it to your Company like T-Mobile, Vurison, AT&T ect, See what they say but first, Get a new charger, If they send it to Samsung to Diagnose the problem.

As the previous poster noted, the first thing to try is a different charger/cable. If those don't make any difference then the micro-USB port on the phone is probably damaged and you should get a replacement (if you have insurance) or get it repaired through Samsung.
The only other option would be to use a wireless charging solution.

Good luck with that.
If you do find a reputable place that does a good job be sure to give them a shout out here for others that may be in a similar situation.
