I charged my phone last night before going to bed. A few hours later I woke up and the whole room smelt like burning wires, I thought someone was toasting a bread or something downstairs at the kitchen. So I ignored it, and then rolled on to my side and I screamed when I felt something burned my hand. It was my phone. The charging port burned and melted.

I was scared because I have no money for a new phone, and my phone's already months out of warranty.

My family's four L920 chargers are all white. And all of the USB charger cables that connect the charger to the phone are black. I've never seen a white Nokia cable, myself.

I suppose anything is possible but I agree with several others in that it is probably an after-market USB cable.

I am finding out that you can only use Nokia charger and cord. Having blackberry, android all the chargers do the same. But my 1520 will only work with the charger and USB cord that came with it.

That's awful. Those pictures are just heartbreaking. :cry: Is that charger an official one, though? My 920 also came with a white charger (it's a Rogers 920 I have), but it's only been used once and not by me but by my mom, who used it once to charge her 620 when she was with my grandmother at the hospital. I hope you are able to get your phone replaced and that it doesn't cost an arm and a leg to do so.
