Is there any remedy or way to tighten the micro usb flap? It gets loose over time, except the jack, the jack for earphones is tightly covered whereas the Micro USB flap is getting loose overtime.. Im scared that it might soon be too lose that water would get in.

My question, is there any way to tighten/ secure it, or some piece of ornament to tighten things around it? Styrofoam of some sort idk.. or some adhesive to tighten it.. please help me out. This is for all of us.. thank you!

Not sure about tightening but you can use silicone paste to make it more waterproof.....also buy external dock to charge to avoid using use

No. I suggest you to get a new USB flap so that keep the phone waterproof.

Try cleaning the rubber. Make sure there is no dust or any dirt.
