doesnt charge, the part where the charger connects inside has broken

hello, i have had my blackberry for ages now, one day it was working fine and then i plugged it in to charge and it didnt respond. so i thought it was the charger so used my usb and it still didnt charge. the charger was really loose inside the phone so i took it out and the part where the charger goes inside the phone came out with the end of the charger. so i took it apart and then saw that the part where the charger bit inside the phone has snapped off the circuit board. i dont know how to fix it without buying a new phone or a new circuit board. help please.

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

seems to be a common problem with this model and other blackberries.

A new charging port would have to be soldered on. This is pretty technical, so u might want to take it to a technician but the phones not ruined. probably $50-$60

I have the same problem with my android. You might wanna get it fixed or buy a new battery for your phone. It would probably work with me as well
