    The LG charger my phone came with lasted a few months, then my phone wouldn't charge on it. I bought a nokia charger on amazon and a motorola car charger as well. They both lasted several months, but now neither is charging my phone. Even hubby's HTC evo charger wouldn't charge it. I took it to the cricket store, lo and behold the lady is charging my phone with the store's charger. I get home and try the nokia charger on hubby's htc evo, wtf, it's working? Then I try it on mine, it isn't working. I plug his into his htc charger, it is working, so I plug it into mine, now it is charging! Then I plug mine into my nokia charger, wiggle it around, and it too is now working. I have been trying to get it to work for 2 days! Is my LG breaking chargers, or have I stumbled upon 3 unrealiable chargers in 6 months?

    Welcome to the forums, ahowe07.

    It does sound like your device charging port and/or charging cable are damaged or loose.

    Let's see what others here in the Optimus M forum have to say. ;)

    I posted this in this forum as well as the android accessory forum, because this IS an android phone, and the charger IS an accessory, so I would appreciate my question be left in there so that I can get answers as there aren't many people in this forum.

    I was able to use,my charger for about a month and then it went out. I use my USB cable from my western digital USB drive and it works fine. I think lg just doesnt make good cables.

    My USB charger still works except the USB connection is loose so I have to have the cable hang down if the phone is on a flat surface in order for the phone to hold a charge.
