I was inspired by this post to try one last time to 'fix' my 5 y/o Windows Phone. For months now, the micro USB slot has been screwed up so that I had to hold the cable in place with an elastic band to get it to charge...even then it was finicky and sometimes would come out.

When it first happened, I did what was suggested here, using a toothpick to clean the contacts and the slot. It didn't work so I figured the slot was just screwed. This morning, I decided to try something a bit thinner/stiffer, so I got a sewing needle and started poking around, immediately digging out what looked like hard packed dirt/dust. It took some force to get in the slot on the thin side, but I finally got it all out! Now the cables seat correctly. Problem solved! Smile | :)

One of the things I had been missing was the ability to plug up to my pc and access the phone and SD card through explorer, so I tried that now and it did not work...the phone shows charging, but device not showing up in explorer. I tried another cable...no joy. Sigh | :sigh: I found the original cable for the phone and tried it...and it worked! Smile | :) Apparently, not all micro-usb cables are the same. Yay! I don't need to get a new phone after all! Laugh | :laugh:
