Anyone else having charging problems with their phone? I've tried about 3 different sources with 2 different chargers and my focus wont seem to charge anymore. I hope I dont have to exchange it.

hmmm , check the INSIDE of your Micro usb ( on the phone and on the wire )

if the little clip inside is losse. then ur plug is broken and its not a question of exchange its a question of repaIRE , and its probly not returnable cause its a PHISICAL damg

meaning u need to send it out to repair and its probly gona cost you $$ cause ( well in canada any ways ) phisical damg is not covered.

one thing it could be to , is ur battery , if u dint give it a full 12 hour charge the first time u might have damged it. that they can exchange.

This probably won't help you, but I'll post it anyway...

When I plugged my phone into the same outlet strip as my computer and about half a billion other devices, my phone doesn't charge. When I plug it into a dedicated outlet on the wall, then it seems to charge just fine.

My cases have been:

- Plugged into PC: charges slowly
- Plugged into wall: charges quickly
- Plugged into Xbox: doesn't charge (odd, because my BB did)

yeah and wall plugs Boost out more Voltige , PC charging is ALWAYS the SLOW way to charge only recomended to sync things to your phone .

and BB do req less power to charge.

Maybe because it was meant to charge controllers, which probably requires less power than the current WP7 phones? And maybe too much power could possibly mess up the controller? I dunno I'm talking outta my arse... just a guess.

To the OP, are you still using the OEM charger? I've had problems when using after market chargers with past phones.
