Now-a-day's, when my phone is charging it will all of a sudden stop charging YET the phone will still show that it is charging but the battery is actually dying. This is very inconvenient especially because I charge my phone at night so when I wake up, I could have a battery that's 100% charged and ready for the day.
-This problem has been occurring since the beginning of February 2013.
-Like every other person with a phone, I've dropped mine a couple of times, if that may be the cause of my problems.
-Last month, my phone dropped into my sink with the water running. I quickly dried out the charging port and was having a couple of problems with the charging, but it went away and my phone charged normally until this month.
-If the charger is touched (at the charging port at the bottom of the phone), it will stop charging. It seems even if it isn't touched, it will stop charging.
-I've had my phone for about 5 months, purchased on Saturday, September 29th, 2012.
-The charge is able to wiggle if you touch it, which is when it stops charging. Even when it doesn't wiggle it stops charging then i'll have to wiggle it to charge again.
-If I take my charger out, it will say that the phone is charging, so I'll have to plug it back in then unplug for it to show that it is not charging.
All answers are accepted. Thank you!
Well it's either a problem with your charging port or the charger itself. I know with my old admire it got to the point where I had to lift up the the part that went into the port and hold it like that just to get it to charge. I would suggest try changing chargers and see what happens. If it still happens than it's your port. If you know it isn't dirty or anything then there's not much you can do unless you replace the motherboard or the port itself. I saw some fixes people had after searching for a while but none worked for me so I don't know.
