    Hi Guys!

    I have recently discovered charging problem with two year old 4S.
    When I plug it with charging cable it starts and stops charging right
    away. You have to place it in a specific angle so that it charges. So
    you can't really use it because it will stop charging as soon you pick
    it up.

    Is there a fix for this or should I start looking for a new phone?

    Thanks for the help in advance.

    Well let's eliminate the cable and dirt in the 30 pin connector. If after trying a different sync cable and cleaning out the connector and you still have problem charging, then yeah it's the phone that needs fixing.
