    Hey guys my phone (the lumia 822) stopped charging and i read online i could go wireless. I purchased the charging shell and the charging plate but my phone isn't charging. Is it because the battery is completely dead? I'm not sure what to do there's no light indicating a charge and my phone won't turn on the battery is too low.

    I've had my Nokia Lumia 822 for about a year and a half, and have never had any issues with charging.

    Oh I am so happy to see other people talking about this. Believe it or not I am on my second Lumia 822 going on my third because my charger port just broke Saturday the 8th. The Verizon support line made me feel crazy asking me was it just the charger itself then would refer me to someone else and they would ask the same thing. I like Windows Phones and this is the only set back I have with it. I also have a wireless charger that I can use in the mean time until I get a replacement but that's more of a stationary charger to me and I hate to have to carry that around every where I go. I feel that this problem will continue to occur even after getting another Lumia replacement phone, and that is why I also feel that either Verizon or Nokia should give all the customers that have purchased this phone a better replacement in the mean time. I do not know if this problem happens with all Nokia Lumia phones but when I do finally get my upgrade (next year) I will still get another Windows Phone but it definitely wont be made by Nokia.

    I am having the same problem and need to know how to take it apart. I have screws out but it wont separate. Please get back to me at gpkidder@gmail.com with a website or tutorial on how it comes apart. I have silver epoxy that I used on a laptop charging port. THANKS TO ALL.

    I had taken my laptop to shop and had it soldiered, the chip next to it burnt out ruining the motherboard because the guy that had done the job got that chip hot with his soldering iron. I saw the marks on the chip where it had touched. He would not replace it bc it worked 3 days.

    My phone did not charge last night and had problems with it last week where it did not want to charge with wall charger. The device driver wont read when I plug it into my computer now (home or work) and where I could charge it with a usb to my power jack in the vehicle, it does not want to play with that either. I'm seeing people give mixed feedback about the wireless charging and I'm wondering if I'm not just better off replacing the phone since I have insurance vs. purchasing a wireless charger and risk that not working. Thoughts?

    I am on my second Lumia 822. The first one, the charging port stopped working after almost 2 years. Now the second one is broken...and it's been 5 1/2 months. It's the charging port again. So...it's covered by the warranty and they're sending me a new one...actually, they informed me that the one they will be sending is "refurbished".

    I wonder how long it will take for the charging port to die on this one.

    The phone needs to be powered up to charge. I guess you can't charge it normally? See if you can get some charge in it some how, turn it on, then try it again. Unlike Android phones, Lumias won't charge while powered off.

    While I can't say with any certainty, I believe the wireless would still work if your problem is just the USB port. Wireless charging is a wonderful thing in my opinion, but if you aren't sure why the phone isn't charging you may be better off replacing the phone.

    I had the same issue with the 822. We ended up going the wireless charging route too, and haven't had any problems at all with that. It wasn't until I was trying to deploy an app from Visual Studio for testing that I began to curse the stupid USB port again.

    I am currently on my third 822 for the same reason! My two brothers got one the same day as me, they never had a problem. I have sent mine in thrice now, and this one is just now doing it! It seems to be every six months or so. I charge my phonon at night, too, and it's very frustrating to wake up, knowing it was charging in that position when you went to bed, and the battery is dead.

    What is funny to me about this problem is Nokia was the indestructible brick phone for the longest time! Now this!!!

    Makes me nervous about upgrading to an Icon. Good thing is that the Icon has built-in wireless charging. Otherwise, I love my 822.

    Wireless charging back is now for $19 on eBay, a quick and easy fix. The charging plates are also on sale over at All4cellular.com.

    Hi, my Nokia Lumia 822's charging port is constantly breaking. This will be the third time I have to replace this phone because it has randomly stopped charging. It charged fine, early this morning, but when I plugged it in a bit ago it stopped. Does anyone else, that has an 822, have this problem too? Is it just me? Do I not treat my phone well enough or is it just a flaw in the phone itself?

    Got a wireless charging cover off eBay, and it is much more convenient than the cable option.
    The only issue i'm having at the moment is that the cover is somewhat more bulky than the non wireless charging one.
    Guess i'll get used to it with time.

    I have been having charging port issues for the last couple of months and within the last few weeks it was getting difficult to charge my 822 without a lot of fancy angles and weights. Ordered a wireless charging plate and wireless phone back which arrived today. Total cost for both was about $12. Should have done this 2 1/2 years ago. So convenient. Wireless charging is now a must have for my next Windows phone, come this fall. Funny thing though...every time I pick my phone up off the wireless charging plate I still grab to unplug the USB cord which is no longer there.

    The USB port on my 820 failed last week so while I make my mind up as to whether to bother fixing it I got myself one of these

    Aukey Wireless Charger Charging Pad QI-Enabled for: Amazon.co.uk: Electronics

    It is a combined power pack and wireless charger plate which can be used to recharge on the go (either wirelessly or via USB) or as a normal plugged in wireless charger (at home or hotel or in the car etc). As easy to pack in a bag or pocket as a spare phone or battery

    I am also on my third Nokia Lumina phone due to charging port breaking. I am researching phones to make a change. I like the size of the screen, I like the Windows format but I am tired of dealing with the charging port breaking. I do not mistreat my phone, and now I know I am not the only one with this same problem.

    Mine has the same problem. It was dead when I found it, and cannot get it to charge at all. I think the charger port is broken because that's what the previous owner said was wrong with it(my bro). Maybe I can fix it
