    So basically here's the story: Came home from work, plugged in my charger, and when i connected it to the phone it just did a spark and now it's not charging anymore... The charging slot on my phone was very hot, smelled like burned plastic.. Has this happened to anybody else??

    The phones always get hot near the camera lens while charging, but thankfully hasn't burnt up yet.

    Did you try charging it with another charger? If it still doesn't charge take your phone to the nearest Nokia care

    Almost certainly a capacitor or diode has blown - hence the spark and smell.

    Time to get it replaced.

    Yes.

    Was it an official Nokia charger or some Chinese branded thing?

    If phone is out of warranty, then congratulations for your new phone.
