My cell phone is about to celebrate its one year of activation in a couple days. Up until a couple minutes ago, it looked like it wasn't going to make it. It made me so mad because about a week ago it refused to charge. I'd end up fiddling around with it for a good ten minutes before the connection would be made and the charge-up began. One night night it wouldn't charge at all and I gave up.
I took some electronics degreaser and and rubbed it on the connectors. I hoped that it wouldn't make things worse. It has appeared to have solved the problem. The two times I've done it, the connection and charge was immediate. This damn phone better last me another year when my contract is up.
I love my phone by the way.
