Has anybody who was told they'd have to pay $100 for an Asurion replacement *anyway* tried fixing it themselves with a hot air rework tool? OK, admittedly, not everyone owns one, but assuming this is a case of the port coming away from the circuit board traces (as opposed to delaminating the traces from the circuit board itself, or pins breaking), it should be fairly easy to remove the port, put a few dots of solder paste on the anchor points (apparently, HTC didn't even solder the anchor points correctly), wick and flux the pads, then solder the port back down (probably, better and more securely than it was the first time).
