    hi.
    Does anyone have the problem of their captivate USB cord barely staying connected on the phone's side? The sliding 'door' is all the way open but it seems like it barely is connected, and the slightest movement makes it fall out.

    I know you said the door was all the way open but did you hear a click when it slid all the way? If not it might not be all the way open. If that is not it then I don't know.

    Yes the door should slide all the way open with a click.

    I've notice my connection between the cord and phone has been becoming a lot more loose than before. It'll slip out if i talk on the phone while its charging. I dunno what happened but I know for sure its "clicked" open.

    Do you have a case on your phone? I have a hard shell case on mine and i have to remove the top portion when i am charging it in my car. I have one of those new mini usb chargers. But if you have a case you may need to remove it when charging it.

    I've noticed this too. Thought maybe it was my imagination. I don't do much of anything while it's charging though. I'm scared of the extra heat it generates as it already gets warm while just charging. And heat kills lithium-ion batteries...true OEM replacements are very cheap...but that heat can't be good for anything else regardless.

    I do have a case but it in no way interferes with the micro usb cable.

    One tip, get the charger+2 batteries combo from ebay. Its like 11 bucks, but when your battery is low, you just swap it out. No plugging phone in, and no waiting for it to charge. Plus you can take an extra battery with you.
