Farkindroiduser, where did you buy the cable with the 90 degree bend?
I just got a refurb replacement through Verizon (I called them) because my droid's micro usb connection was loose - it got progressively worse until it would not charge unless the cable was in an exact position.
Well, today is the first day with the new phone and I think it's usb is a bit loose, too, and expect it will end up just like my first phone.
After the warranty runs out (I am assuming I am still on the first phone's 1 year warranty - am I right?) then I will likely attempt to fix the thing myself. I wondered if anyone had any experience fixing the micro usb with other devices. I've replaced the battery and screen on my Ipod and done other small electrical repairs so I would feel comfortable at least opening the droid and taking a look. It may be too early for this question though, as I suppose the first droid warranties will not go out until November.
