    Recently whenever I plug my phone into the charger or a mini USB cable it won't stay connected unless I hold it there. Would this be due to the cable or the actual plug on the bottom of the phone coming loose?
    I had this happen with an LG Chocolate before and had to get it replaced.

    If I read your message correctly you're using (at least) two different cables with both having the same problem. If that's correct, then it sounds like the port on the phone is the problem.

    I had the same problem the day I bought my Eris. I was embarrassed to find out I didn't have it pushed in to the "click".

    Yeah I am able to push it in and i feel the click but it doesn't stay there. If I move it at all it likes to slide out. I haven't abused it or anything, guess I'll call Verizon and see if I can get it replaced.

    This will most likely be late for you, but I hope it will help others with this issue. I had the same exact problem with my current phone. I found that when I plugged the charger in, there was a resistance from the charger jack. I'm guessing after a year of my phone being in and out of my pocket, a significant amount of fluff and dust had gathered in the jack preventing the charger fitting all the way in. I used a sewing needle to clean out all the dirt and fluff from the jack, there was a lot! Now my charger sits in nicely and I can charge and use my phone at the same time

    a bit of compressed air helps to keep it out without endangering anything.
    if you have one of the "cans of air" sold for pc keyboards, works great.
