    OK, my wife and I each own the Droid Razr Maxx. Recently her phone died and would not charge back up. She took it to Verizon and the said it was fried. I did a ton of research and tried all the suggestions I came across. I even went as far as swapping my fully charged battery with her dead one to see if it was just a bad battery. Her phone started up with my battery in it and my phone charged her battery just like normal and is still fully functioning in my phone. I tried different charging cables, including 2 OEM ones. When my fully charged battery is in her phone and I plug it in it says charging and shows the little lightning bolt indicator, but the battery just drains down. I even made one of the cables I read about online and connected it to the posts that the battery connects to. This actually charged it up all the way, but when I disconnected it and plugged the regular charger in it just does the same thing as it did before. I did a factory reset. Cleared the cache. There is a cell phone repair shop near me that I took it to. They said if the charging port was bad it wouldn't recognize that something was plugged into it. The guy said it was a bad battery and suggested that instead of paying him I order one off of Ebay (way to turn down business). I don't think this is the case since both batteries operate normally in my phone, I think he just didn't want to admit that he doesn't have a solution.

    Anyone else have any suggestions on this? (Warranty is not an option)

    I concur with the technician...if the charger and/or socket weren't working the phone wouldn't recognize the charger.

    I'd say the charging circuit is fried.

    Actually the technician said it was not the socket due to the fact the phone still recognized that something was attached. He claimed it was a bad battery.

    I have reached out for help on multiple message boards and the general consensus is the same thing you said.

    Thank you very much for your help.
