    My Droid wall charger stopped fully working this morning, and Im not sure why. It may be either that the charger is broken or the port is. When I charged the phone this afternoon on my car charger, it worked fine, but I did notice once that the input piece for the car charger is slightly wider than the wall charger, and the wall charger has seemed to fit loosely in. I cant tell if anything is actually wrong with the silver input piece on the wall charger. Should I buy a new wall charger or take the phone to Verizon to get the the port possibly fixed if that is the issue? Can they even fix the port?

    I doubt they will fix the port and will probably give you a replacement (refurb) phone if your port is indeed bad.

    It may just be your home charging cable end and you can replace that cable cheaply. I would just check with the store and see if they have a wall charger to test on your phone. Best of luck.

    If it charges on the car charger I doubt it's the port on the phone. Either your phone charges or it doesn't, right?

    Does the phone indicate that it is charging when plugged into the wall charger?
