Furthermore, the phone won't charge! It keeps saying that there is no cable plugged in, even though it is. Even more weird, the phone is recognized just fine by my computer and I can move things around on the internal and external memory, but it won't charge. I cleaned the port and tried everything I could think of (factory reset and all that) and still no success. If it does somehow start charging, the phone goes into charging for 6 seconds and then stops. I managed to charge it about 1 percent in an hour.
Any tips on what I could do? Taking it to T-Mobile tomorrow but in the meantime I thought I might ask for suggestions or opinions, especially since right now it is hovering at 9%$ battery life and will soon die.
