    Hello, I need help, charging problem on 1020.
    The phone vibrates many times during charging - connection problem.
    I have tried another charger, another cable, same problem.
    Is there any way to change the connector without changing whole housing?

    I don't know if this can work but what about wireless charging?

    Chintan is right..Wireless charging is an option here :)

    Apart from that, it isn't really needed to replace the entire housing just to get a new charging port :/

    Buying a new port and replacing the old one is a much cheaper option, but opening your phone will require patience and care from your end.

    These vids can give you an idea of what to expect:

    Thanks for answers.
    Because the charging port isn't only problem (the power button also not working), I will not give money to the wi-fi charging pad and CC-3066 (near 150$, I can buy a new phone and maybe I will get promised update...) :)
    I saw these videos before. They are describing how to change the display, battery, not charging port.. That is the reason why I am searching for help.. :)

    But maybe changing the whole housing is the best solution.. They are very cheap, and has charging port and power button...

    Actually the video does show you where the charging port is. The second vid (link) goes more into detail..

    You're looking for sth like this: Nokia Lumia 1020 Micro USB Connector Mic Charging Port Charger Dock Flex Cable | eBay

    As you can see it isn't connected to the housing. I recently changed the charging port of my 920

    if you're considering getting a new phone, try the 950 or 950xl as that would give you the nearest photography experience

    wish that offer wold come to more countries - my brother and I could use them.

    And no, importing isn't an option - too expensive, even if the phone was to cost 200USD
