    Just looking for some help in fixing a Samsung Galaxy S2 t989 (T-mobile)
    I'm convinced that if I change the charger port in the phone that it will fix the problem I'm having...which is: Phone won't charge despite little lightning bolt icon lights up when I attach the charger cable

    In the process of trying to fix this problem, I've purchased three batteries, upgraded to Jelly Bean from GingerBread, cleaned out the ports, tried a number of charger cables, etc., etc. ( The batteries I now suspect are all good. )

    I bought an inexpensive universal external battery charger thru Amazon. That should arrive soon. At this point I think if I start each day with two or three fully charged batteries I can use the phone with abandon not dreading the rapidly plunging battery'll be like living ten years in the future, ha, ha.

    As I write this I realize that I probably shouldn't even bother fixing the damn port and just go out each morning with 300% charge.

    It's such a nice phone otherwise, I just can't see tossing it just yet.

    So if anyone out there knows of any links to fix this I would be most appreciative for the info. I believe the solution for the t989 involves soldering.
    (Different than for the i9100 which seems a lot easier.)

    Hello and welcome to the forums, carsanco. Thank you for joining us!

    I went ahead and moved your query into the T-Mobile S2 device area for you and labeled it "Support" to attract those who know the S2 and want to lend assistance (Introductions is seen mostly by new members and Staff trying to keep the place tidy ;)).

    Let's see how it goes in here. :)

    Incredible video!
    Thanks awoolf!
    I have been charging three batteries externally and rotating them for the last few weeks and the system seems to be working great so even though I'm pretty sure I could do all that soldering I'm thinking that at this point I'll leave it alone. (There's always a risk doing all that work, I guess.)
    On the other hand that website seems very thorough so it's nice to know they're there for future ref. Thanks again!
