Remove the charging (micro-USB) port by unscrewing the indicated screws using the Phillips #00 screwdriver. Disconnect the ribbon cable connecting the charging port board to the motherboard using tweezers. Use the tweezers to grab the sides of  black, plastic connector.  Do not grab from the wires or try to wedge it out from the bottom.

I called Verizon and they said that they didn't have a replacement.

Was thinking removing the battery was simpler. Thought also doing so , like a phone, would be the same as a hard reboot. I guess maybe not do much…
