    So I have a loose electric socket at home and its charging on and off before it gets charged properly due to having a loose socket. Will that damage my phone?

    May not damage the phone but it could start a fire! A loose connection can generate heat. Don't use it until it's fixed......

    This! A loose connection is possibly arcing behind the plug, and that's not a good thing!

    What about if I keep plugging and unplugging my charger with a fixed socket. Will that damage the phone as I keep plugging ang unplugging about 5 times?

    I would guess probably not, but I'd question your sanity... :)

    Use a different socket, or replace the faulty socket.

    That's pretty dangerous. Like the previous posters said, plug it into a working socket.

    Why would you do that though? I can't see that it would damage the phone, but it could possibly damage the charger or your house electrics...

    People get what you mean, but they don't understand why you're asking the question.

    Won't it damage the battery? Due to the fact that I unplugged and pluggged it multiple times within 2 mins.

    What, don't you go and rapidly plug and unplug your phone for 5 minutes, just for giggles? You're the weird one...

    Does the K in "HEK" stand for "KillJoy"? :(
