Help with USB/Charge port Motorola Defy XT 557
The boy ripped the charge port out of his Republic Wireless Motorola Defy XT 557. I have the old port or I can order a new one for just a few dollars.
I found an online repair shop that will fix the phone for $150, problem is the phone cost $100 brand new...
Phones on eBay go for $60...
Does anyone think this thing can be fixed for around $50, or is that a pipe dream?
What would I need to fix it myself?
I ordered the #5 torx bit it will take to open the phone up. I can file down a soldering iron tip or use a small torch??
Ordered a battery only external charger so the phone will be somewhat useable...
