    Take it to the Genius Bar at the Apple Store

    How much is that likely to cost if its not under warranty?

    A hundred thousand dollars, maybe or maybe not divided by something between zero and thousand. Something in that ballpark.

    Seriously though, just go and ask.

    Depends where you are, They might fix it for free or replace it for free. If not you'll have to pay a Out of Warranty Replacement fee.

    have you looked into the port and cleaned out whatever lint may be hiding in there, possibly causing the connection issue?

    You can DIY replace a brand new charging port flex cable ribbon, this ribbon is about USD$5
