you guys are useless sometimes but here's a hint so you never have my problem. don't use usb extension cable to charge your phone. just use the one that came with it. pull that chair hecka close to the wall. random usb cables can screw up your hardware

Maybe no one before you got this problem, so no one could help you with it?

Comments like these are downright rude and definitely won't get you any help when needed.

On a related note, I am using a USB extension cable with another USB cable, my phone is fine. Anyways as was stated don't be rude, you posted a question that maybe 0.1% of people with a G2 have had.

i'm not saying they cause the problem i'm saying they can.

anyway, someone can close this thread.
