    Help,

    I was charging my phone earlier tonight and it was knocked off the desk it was charging on when I picked it up to plug the charger back in I noticed the connector on the inside was bent and I can no long connect the charger or the usb cable. I have insurance on the phone but I would like to send it back to stock before returning it. Is there any way I can do this without the USB cable? Should I even worry about returning it to stock? I purched the phone through Wirefly so I have the insurance through MDPA and I dont know how well they look things over or even if they do. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I am running firmware 2.1 Ultimate droid 9.8 if that helps

    Why don't you just buy a new charger or usb cable from Amazon? They're usually under $5.

    Knowing the droid though, unless he left it off by now the battery is dead.

    If you have insurance, then why don't you just drop it in water for a couple of hours, until it no longer turns on (I think you are just concerned that they might turn on the phone and see that your device is rooted).... I mean, you do have insurance, right?

    Try looking for a cable at monoprice.com. best prices on the internet for cables and they have great support live on line.

    ok I wasnt able to get my droid to unroot so I went the way of nuking it in the microwave. It fried the screen but the phone still turns on. hopefully that will be enough along with the micro usb port being shot to get a new droid. Thanks for everyones help

    Not true without video :)

    Seriously though, that's insurance fraud. You rooted the phone, you dropped the phone, you damaged it. That's not an activity I'd be posting about.

    Shoulda just sent it back with the busted USB, it didn't break because you rooted, it broke because it broke.
