I bought an extra OEM USB cord with my MT cause I had heard they were picky & sure enough, it would charge from just about any charger as long as I used the OEM cable. If I tried to use the cable from my OV or another generic one I had lying around, no dice. I was also always SUPER careful with handling the MT when it was plugged in so as not to put strain on the USB connector. It's the only phone I've had that has so much play in the USB connector- bound to cause problems eventually...

I literally just experienced this problem a few hours ago. My Triumph simply would not charge at all. After connecting it to my computer and noticing that it worked, I replaced the USB Wall Base Charger and it started charging normally. If your Triumph successfully connects and chargers when connected to a computer, then I suggest you buy one of these:

Good luck!

Now everyone needs 2 or more replacement phones? They meed to admit it is a lemon. I am ready for an i-phone after this experience.

OK so I'm new here.. I have been working with cell phones for awhile now and am fairly comfortable taking apart/putting back together, rooting what ever, I tried everything I could think of to get my tiumph to charge correctly and no dice, I got so frustrated I pulled the battery and threw it at the ground a few times flat side up then down lmao - made me feel better - surprisingly enough I put the battery back into the phone and it started to charge, (I tried pulling the battery tons of times never charged afterwards) so I'm thinking that the problem may be with faulty battery's, I'm using a Samsung charger and it worked fine the first few times I used it and I am not the type of person to stab the cord into the phone, I'm always careful about it, I think the guy above who said the phones were released to soon was correct or they just made a crap ton of faulty battery's and spewed them onto the market, they don't want to recall the battery's so there just making people get them then send them in when they stop working... I also have the issue where the wake/power button does not work correctly, I just rooted the phone and used the beta soft key re-mapper, this phone has issues

I imagine it's unlikely, but has anyone gotten VM or Motorola to fix/replace their phone with this issue for free after the phone is out of warranty? (I've heard of manufacturers fixing things out of warranty if it's a known issue.)

My phone is over a year old and just starting having this problem

See my second post on the previous page about taking a needle and periodically prying up each set of tension prongs on the outside of your charge cable. (Four prongs, two on each side, each pair is of a different design. Just pry them up slightly, use a magnifier if you need to. You will feel a marked difference in the resistance felt while plugging it in) I had the same issues everyone else complains about and it fixed them entirely. Yes the USB port on the phone sees its shell get a little sloppy. So this compensates for that.
The fix takes seconds and costs nothing. It's amazing Virgin Mobile has not figured this out and had owners do this instead of engaging in returning phones back and forth.
I don't want someone else's ****ed up phone. I got mine to work! What could be better?

Default Had this issue for months

I think the problem might be that the charging port is getting loose. The female kind... And only larger chargers can make the connection. So far, I've only had luck with Palm and Samsung chargers, but now even they don't work and I have to resort to putting two exposed wires straight into the battery and putting that back into the phone. This has caused the connectors within the battery to loosen also, and I went ahead and took a chance and bent the battery connector prongs, which worked perfectly, but I have no Idea how long this solution will last. If anyone wants, I can try to get a few pictures of my method.
