    so last night i did the baseband upgrade and noticed very soon after that i could not charge my phone!i figured it was the upgrade so i did a nandroid backup. ive been looking stuff up, applied old baseband, everything i do doesnt work. my battery is now completely dead and even when it was on i couldent get it to recognize usb.
    first you guys think it was coincidence?
    should i get a replacement from verizon or asurion?

    If my phone shuts down because it is too low, a lot of times the USB will not charge it and I have to go to the wall charger.
    Don't know if it will make a difference here, but thought it worth a mention.

    thanx for the reply but for sure one of the first things i tried.....
    and the only reason im worried about taking it in is because im rooted. dont want them to somehow boot it up and see that.
    i also dont wanna go to asurion cuz i dont wanna pay 100 buks!

    How long did you let it charge before you tried it? When mine dies completely, sometimes I have to let it charge for 5-15 minutes before it'll even turn on.
    If I use USB to charge it, that'll take even longer.

    the thing is, even when it was on the led wouldent turn on, it would not charge and it would not recognize usb. its like the port just took a poop on me.

    i am now more sure it is the port.... if i put the charger in 25% of the way i get the led on, it will turn the phone on but will not continue to charge. placing the charger in all the way will do nothing... kinda random, i havent forced anything in there or anything like that.
