    Cable issues

    Seems like I have terrible luck with cables. Some won't charge my Bionic although it will charge my wife's Samsung. I've also had a couple now that won't charge my phone unless I position it just right. This is getting aggravating now. What's the best cable to get? Or do they all do this?

    Re: Cable issues

    Sounds like it could possibly be the charging port on your phone. How old is the device? Are you a heavy user? (Lots of charge cycles)

    It happens whether I plug it into the computer, wall plug, or car charger. I charge overnight of course but there are times when I need to charge during the day as well. I would not consider myself a heavy user. The cord I'm charging with right now is intermittent. I can't make it turn off or on by messing with the port. if I move the wires around then I can get it to come on and go off but that could still be slightly moving the plug in the port.

    I have had this problem with my Droid 3. The only solution I have found is buying a new cord. Apparently the connector end of the cord is wearing out. Don't like buying a new cord every 6 months, but haven't figured out a better fix.

    Cables are pretty cheap but it might also be your charging port problem on your phone.
