    Has anyone else had the problem of a loose charger port on their Droid? I bought my Droid 13 months ago and just noticed this week that when I go to connect my home charger, the phone will reboot and then not recognize that it is plugged in. If I play around with the cord so that it is at a slight angle, I am able to get it to charge.

    I have a bad feeling this is a result of playing games on the phone while plugged in which may have "stretched" the charging "sleeve" in the phone. I tried to use a mini-screwdriver to pry the metal clips inward to force a tighter fit but it did no good and I am afraid to mess with it too much for fear of causing irreversible damage.

    Of course I do not have insurance on the phone and the one year warranty just expired. Anyone have a solution that might work? In the meantime, I just have to be extremely careful to adjust the cord just right to guarantee a connection.

    Or, conversely your home charge plug might be bad...have you tried a different charger?
