While watching a college basketball game I let my 7yr old listen to music on Droid she's a great kid so it was hard to say no... I had it charging and the headphones have about a 5ft cord... next thing I know she's up dancing around and she had Droid, I told her to put Droid down and turned around to watch more of the game... ai bout a min passed and then it hit me my heart sank..... was she going to try to put the charger back in? As I spun around there she was my worst nightmare.... she was trying her best to get that Jack in.. I snapped I yelled for her to hurry up and get out... she took off running and crying... I had the phone in my hand and a tear that never ran but made my sight a lil blurry... those end pins looked like an acordian... I almost vomited, I had it charging cause I was down to 20% power... I asked myself "is this how it ends?" I sulked for a good hour then I called VZW hoping that all I had to do was get it repaired... this phone is sentimental to me, it arrived on my bday ( a day I took off of work only to spend the entire day tracking down the fedex dude) anyway they're pretty much just gonna replace it... I can't keep this one... before giving up completely I sucked it up and grabbed a paperclip untwist it and went to work... after a bit I had the pins straightened out enuff to take a charge.. if you pull the charger to the left a lil bit.... it charged!!!!! I know my time with this phone is short but I'm gonna keep it as long as I can... may get a week at best before the pins snap.... one thing tho, if I put the charge in to the right a bit it makes Droid reboot... I know ill like the new one but, that's not the point Btw go easy on my lil girl... don't do her like we did dude's stupid cat...lol. she'll never touch the new one... maybe once since I damn near traumatized her.
