    Hey guys,

    This is just a thread concerning the loose charging jack.

    On both of my phones, I've had a loose charging jack. I'm not sure if it's my cable, but I can't be sure. I'm going to be taking a pin and making the usb port smaller to see if it helps.

    Is anyone else having this problem?

    Yes it does. Did you do anything to loosen it?

    It's always been like this and has progressively gotten worse

    I would take it to a store as soon as possible, especially if you have insurance. I had that problem with my old phone(not a droid), and eventually the jack came out all together, luckily it came with a base so I could still charge it. If you don't have insurance and they try to charge you too much, I believe there is an accessory that charges the battery directly, but you probably want/need to be able to connect to your pc, laptop, mac, etc.

    i fear that the jack will become loose - as i use the Droid alot while charging - and with the placement of the ac jack on the SIDE of the Droid - it pulls on the cable when using the Droid in the car (charger)

    i really do not like the charger being on the bottom - but i guess with the keyboard and landscape mode, it had to be that way - very annoying when using in the car and the charger cable is coming from the RIGHT of the vehicle's dash - and the Droid's plug is on the far left - when you use it upright - portrait mode , the cable pulls from the right - anyone else aggravated by this?

    wish the charging cable outlet was on the bottom like other phones - but with h/w key guess it had to be this way...
