Default Has anyone replaced a charging port themselves?

I've begun to have charging problems, and discovered through trial/error that the charging cable must be bent downwards to keep a steady charge. I *think* somehow I bent the charging port "tongue." But I fear trying to re-bend it and snapping it off or something. I wonder how difficult it would be to replace--was checking out Incredible tear-down on youtube. Has anyone replaced their charging port, or does anyone know if it's a simple fix? I don't want a new phone just yet for several reasons. Otherwise the phone is working fine. (I am considering taking to Verizon for repair, but the phone is rooted and I don't want to open a can of worms.) Thanks!
