My son's Admire has the same issue. I tried many different cables with luck.

Turns out it is his port. Now the phone even thinks it is charging sometimes when it isn't even plugged in. He has to get the cable angled just right to get it to charge or get recognized by the PC.

The port on his actually moves around a bit.

Holy Crap I didn't notice this thread was

Worst part is, even under warranty the ports are usually not covered as they attribute it to user abuse/misuse (ie. tripping over cord or yanking it out) which is total BS.

Depending on your phone's age or if you have insurance I would still bring it in and see what they say. You may get one of Metro's more stupid associates (highly likely) and get lucky. Good luck.

Holy Crap, I didn't notice this thread was so old. I'm helping to summon the dead!
