Default Captivate charging port woes..

my captivate stopped charging so I took it to be repaired. After 3 days and $35 I get my phone back and it charges anywhere with any mini usb charger. bad news is that it will not go into debugging mode when i plug it into my computer. It will still charge however when plugged in via usb cable. Just NO DATA transfer thru usb cable at all...

D+ and D- are shorted together - bad repair
*so much sig updating needed*

My Github profile - Some Android stuff, some AVR stuff

An excellent post on "noobs vs. developers"

A few opinions on kernel development "good practices"

Note: I have chosen not to use XDA's "friends" feature - I will reject all incoming "friend" requests.

So I brought it back to the repair shop where the front desk girl proceeded to take my phone to the back for all of thirty seconds just to come out and say it's working fine... Guess I should've went with the $50 repair after all. Any way I can repair this at home? it.

Open your phone up and take a look, they probably accidentally soldered the D+ & - together like Entropy512 said. You could repair it yourself if you have any skill/s with a soldering iron.
