    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.
