the only micro usb cables that will work with it are an old samsung wall charger and my mom's new samsung usb cable. everything else will either stop working after a half second or not at all. Even the cable that came with my phone stopped working after a few months. i'm trying to trade cables with my mom so i can plug my phone into my pc but that only avoids the problem instead of addressing and possibly fixing it. my first thought was a bad micro port but if that was the case i'd imagine no cables would work. it's not a terribly pressing issue as i'm still capable of charging but it's preventing me from nerding out with custom roms and all that. thanks for any help offered! edit: i've tried manipulating the seemingly bad cords like holding them in different directions, resting the phone in certain ways, but nope.
