    I assume that you have a similar issue when you try to connect the phone to a PC via USB?

    Sounds like some sort of connection issue. Given you've already changed the cable and battery, I'm going to guess it's the USB port on the phone.

    Might be worth taking a close look at the port to see if there's any loose dirt in there that you could - very delicately - remove. I had a problem with my headphone jack that I fixed by carefully removing a bit of dirt from the port.

    If there's no loose dirt, then it could be the USB port is damaged in which case the phone's going to need to go in for a repair. Not sure if that would be covered by the warranty, but you never know ..

    Virgin will probably replace it for you if you call customer support and explain your situation.
