    My charging port seems to be broken. The only way my phone will charge is when i have the cord at a weird angle which puts the metal part on the charger sideways a little. Ive tried other chargers and they dont work unless its at a weird angle. Ive had charing problems with this phone since ive purchased it. Is there any way to fix it?

    The port has to be resoldered into the board. Depending on how much charring has occurred (every time you move the plug to make contact and charge, you make a little spark), the board may have to be replaced. Only Samsung can tell you whether they'll do the repair for free or not. (They'll certainly give you back a working phone if you pay for whatever needs to be done.)
