    The apple store will probably be able to tell you what is wrong, but they won't fix it for free. You probably bent a pin/connector or something.

    Honestly, it can't be that hard to speak properly. To answer your question, they will probably be able to fix it, but the price of the repair may make it more cost effective to just replace it. It depends on how bad it is. Maybe their is just lint of something in the connector.

    It probably would not cost much to fix. My Blackberry did the same thing when charging, and my provider fixed it for free and they charge for anything they can, and I bought my Blackberry used, not from them.
