Default S4 thinks it's charging when unplugged!

As the title suggest, when I unplug my charger, it thinks it's still charging. I've removed the battery for a few minutes and replaced, sorts the problem untill the next charge.

It's not a serious issue I know, but annoying non the less :P

Anyone else had this and know how to fix it?!

Try blowing the port out with compressed air.

Most likely something is stuck in their (lint, fuzz,etc) that is making the phone think a cable is connected when it isn't

File a patent for long range wireless charging, then wait to sue Apple. ;-)

So I wemt to plug my phone in last night, AND......... nothing happened :/ Tried a different charger, nothing. Tried my bros phone with my charger, it charged. Tried mine in my pc, nothing

So yeah, turns out the usb port is screwed.

Weirdly, if I plug it in when the phone is powered off, it vibrates like it's been plugged in, then again, and again. lol

So it's off down to the phone shop I go!
