Can I replace my micro usb port with any micro usb port part?

So I've been using this phone for a couple months now and suddenly the micro usb has stopped charging, I have used multiple micro usb cables and adapters and this hasn't worked also I tried supposed fixes from online but didn't work either. I sent the phone into Vodafone however they can't replace the phone as they've said its customer damage also they cant repair it as they don't have repair service for it yet. I want to replace the micro sub port however I don't know if I can use any micro usb port part from ebay to fix the problem as I cant find any parts for the Vodafone Platinum 7 online or real repair sevices. Please help me fixers, its a great phone and just need it to work. :)

JadSkating, Look in the charge port and blow/pick out(carefully) any dust/debri that may be causing an issue also look in the port for any bent pins and straighten very carefully with a tooth pick. Below are links 1&2 to partial disassembly videos that can get you inside the phone. UK Repair Center link also states to use the vid. on there page for disassembly. Once you are inside the phone I believe the Micro USB is attached/soldered to the daughter board. This port would normally have to be changed by some one with experience with micro soldering or the whole daughter board replaced perhaps. If you open the phone you can use a magnifier to inspect port and if loose/contacts needing perhaps just resoldered you can give it a go or take into a good local cell repair shop and have them do repair. If everything does look good perhaps consider checking battery connection and possibly replacing battery. If port no good, you can compare it to one's on the net(links 3&4)and match it up maybe for replacement. 5th link shows some what is involved in repair/changing USB port. Good luck. I hope this helped you out, if so let me know by pressing the helpful button.
