User opinions and reviews

  • Bob Z.

Sounds like dust or a particle caught in the charging slot on the phone. Clean out with a plastic dental pick or shave down a toothpick as the gap is very small.

  • Mir

back up your data and format/factory reset your phone.. and it will run like a horse again.

  • Mir

Yes.. it can be fixed. usb port on your phone can be replaced and battery can be replaced as well.
