Default charging port doesnt work....how do i save files?

Please Login to Remove!

my pearl is a replacement that tmobile sent me. i guess they make it look nice and new, but the internal chips are poorly glued together. My charging port is loose and doesnt charge anymore, therefore, no more charging/syncing. Since the phone still works, is there a way for me to back up my current info on my phone? my replacement should be here in a couple of days.

I believe that they stated that is what they want to use but the USB on the phone is not working. Once the get DeskTop manager running and a connection (Bluetooth sounds like the only option left). Worst case scenario they could at least copy all contacts to the SIM and at least transfer that data.

You can connect via USB or Bluetooth. I threw out the blue tooth option since USB was dead. If you can connect Desktop manager will make the back up and restore very easy!
