So tonight when i try to charge my phone. It wouldn't give me the chime sound or it wouldn't even lit up. I tried rebooting it and trying it again and still it won't charge. I did however turn it off then tried booting it with the charger and it boots up but won't charge. I noticed that there's some pocket lint hanging around the port so i tried to get rid of it with a soft brush. I got most of it off but i see a tiny piece of what seems like a piece of receipt paper. I tried charging it again and switching the cord from the off brand charger to the original charger. None! i started scrubbing it some more with the brush and tried it again but with only the original chord and i fiddled with it side to side and it finally charged! but i have to leave it at whatever it's placed to maintain that charge. It's kind of annoying. I also noticed that it's charging really slow! like 5-8% every 15-20 mins. Should i replace the charging port now? I found a place in my local area that specialize in replacing that part for $69. My question is...do i have to restore my phone after i get that part replaced? i'm jailbroken on the latest firmware and i wanna do it as soon as possible if anything. This would've been the 2nd time that the charging port gave out on me...could it be the fault of an off-brand chord? btw these off-brand chords doesn't give me the pop-ups like the cheapy ones.
