Any hadware pro`s out there?
Somehow I have managed to damage the contact strip on the bottom of the phone. It will not charge in the cradle, but the battery charges in the cradle. Sync using the cradle is OK. I think it needs a new connector strip. Does anyone know if this is a "beyond economical repair" type of problem, or have any ideas how to approach this. I could take it to an O2 shop for a quote, but that may take weeks, and besides its an unlocked phone, and they might not be 2 impressed!!!

I also have the same problem mate. Not quite sure how I bent it though.

I managed a small repair, but I still have to angle the charger slightly to get it on. Everything still works for at the moment, so I don't think that I will get it repaired.

Nearly forgot, this is my first post so hello to everyone!

now if only one of those bad boys carried an audio signal we'd be in business for a nice car docking station!
