Went to a local Sprint store to have my port checked out. Rep said that if the port is still attached to the circuit board, it can be exchanged for another Evo for free. HOWEVER, if it is detached, it is seen as physical damage caused by the user, thus requiring the $100 fee. Mine was detached. Canceling TEP coverage tomorrow anyway.
