for the past few months, the red light won't turn on and it won't charge unless i put the charger (the part that goes into the phone) in a certain position with certain pressure etc etc. it's getting worse and thought i might need a new charger. my brother has a different phone, but he said a similar thing happened to him and that it wasn't the charger, but the phone. he said he broke it open & soddered it together by himself, which fixed the problem. i don't want to pay for a new charger if i don't need one and visiting a verizon store is very inconvenient..so i don't want to have to travel unless i really have to go. if the problem is the charger, i can just order a new one online. if it's the phone, i'll make the long trip to the store.
what do you think is the problem?
