    Can someone please post a clear picture of the charging port. When I plug my charger in the port, the left side of the usb plug hangs out a little bit. Still is able to charge though. So I'm asking for a picture so I can compare what a normal port looks like. I'm thinking of trying to fix the port. Also you may suggest a fix from what I am describing. I'll try to post a picture of my port in a little bit.

    That seems fairly simple to fix qwerty04. And Vitticeps, are you always drunk when plugging your phone in? That thing looks like an animal got a hold of it.

    I would use a tac, or something small, and hard enough to bend the metal back in place.

    LOL. It doesn't look that bad in person. The flash really highlights the minor scratches. Its the media dock that does it. When you drop it in the dock, if its not lined up just right it sits on the plug and when you shift it around to seat it, it scratches.

    Droid port will not charge the phone at all

    I have a similiar problem. I had been able to still get the phone to charge until now; it will not work at all. The Verizon store is totally useless, they just want to sell me another phone, had no suggestions or options even though this phone should still be covered by warranty (I did not get the insurance). They say it is my fault, however, I see this problem posted on both this forum and the Motorola forum, I have not used this phone any differently than the numerous other phones I have used is the past. I am very dissapointed in this Motorola product and Verizon. I feel this is a design flaw in the phone and expect there will be more of these posts from very unhappy Droid purchasers.
