First time poster, thought i'd give this forum a whirl.
One of the pins in my Razr HD mini-usb connector is bent and pushed inward. I think it is the ground pin (pin 5). The phone is now dead. I stripped an old charger (5V supply) to expose the pos and neg wires and am attempting to charge the phone by contacting the pos and ground pins (1 and 5) with the exposed wires on the charger. Anyone had success doing this? I was hoping that I didn't need to short other pins or add a resistor, etc.
Desperate to get photos off the phone! Verizon says its not possible with this phone.
Any help is greatly appreciated!
