    Is it still under warranty? It definitely sounds like internal damage or damage to the micro-usb port. Get a flashlight and check out the port for visible damage, if you don't see any it's probably internal.

    Have you dropped it or got it wet recently?

    No, i just looked into the phone charging lot the port is destroyed. How can i fix this? what if i don't have a warranty? i don't know any one who has a cricket phone they do not use:thinking:

    Well you could look for one on eBay that someone is selling for parts. Then you could call a shop and find out the price of the part and labor. It may be cheaper to buy the part on eBay and pay the shop to replace it. I have a feeling it is going to be more expensive that the cost of a new phone though.

    If you can find the part for a good price, you could try fixing it yourself before shelling out the money for a new phone. I don't think you would have anything to lose at this point.

    Another thought is if you can't afford a new one right now, just get the cheapest Cricket phone you can find and in the meantime start saving ;)

    Sorry this same solution did not work for me, but it may work for you, if you bought the phone less than 1 year ago, it should be under warranty, if you pay a monthly fee for the replacement option then i think its free. It should only cost $10 the first way, go to cricket store and they will send another phone in about a week and then you go pick it up...GOOD LUCK
