Broken charger port

So my GF got in a fight with her sis and her sis grabbed the phone and threw it, in the process ripping the charger out (it was plugged in at the time). She found the male connecter embedded into the phone's charger port, and after getting that out she cannot get the phone to charge anymore (leading us to the assumption that somehow the pins or something were damaged). Is there a way to fix this? The only "solution" I can come up with is to buy one of those battery cradles and a spare battery and just swap between batteries from now on. FWIW, the VzW store told her that they don't repair out of production phones.

Record conversation

I have figured out how to record conversations while I am on the phone, but I can't figure out where to find the recording after. I'm sure I am missing something. Anyone have advice?? Thanks!

Startup problems

I just recently suffered some water damage to my chocolate. A couple other people I know of who got water damage to theirs didn't have this problem, but now whenever i turn it on "verizon wireless" displays on the screen, as if its starting up, but then it goes black and repeats itself...over and over and over again. Is there anything i can do? I'd like to at least salvage my contacts and videos off of it...

music. HALP!!!???!?!?!?!?!!!!!

UGH. i bought the package thing for the chocolate. it's a VX855 and the cable wont connect to the computer. it did the first time, but that was it. tech support couldn't do anything. i hear it may be the cable. any comments on that?

well since i have the adapter, i figured i would just put music on it through that, but it's not the right format. does anyone know what it has to be? i dont know if that's the answer, but if there's some other way that you have to do it, please let me know. 😳

Micro Chip External Memory Card

So I bought one of these Sandisc micro chips that go into the right side of the Chocolate phone because I was getting tired of having to delete my text message box every 5 minutes since it only holds 50 messages. I was told that by doing this it would make it so I didn't have to do that, but I put the card in and it still makes me delete my inbox after 50 messages. is there some special thing I have to do to make my text messages save to this chip instead of my phone's memory? can someone please help me out here?

I can hear callers and key don't make noise!

Within the past 6 months on multiple occasions I will get a call and only the vibrate will work (have phone setup for ring & vibrate). When I answer I get nothing, but the caller can hear me just fine. Then if I try calling them back the pressing of keys are silent.

Has anyone heard of or had this issue?

😈 Is it true there is no speakerphone
included with this phone? I would never buy a phone without one. With all the bells and whistles on this phone, they will probable lose some sales because of the lack of the speakerphone.

I've had this phone for 4 months now, and I cant wait to get rid of it. I love it but I know it will break, they all will (probably the touch pad).

Anyway, sometimes the battery shows a charge of, say, 3 bars. I listen to music for maybe an hour or two at work, then turn off the music player with 1 bar remaining. In a few minutes though there is another bar, and sometimes 2.

When I leave it in my cold car for a couple hours, and bring it into the house, this happens as well.

Does this happen to anyone else?

Thanks in advance.
