Anyone Fix Charging Port Problem? (Nokia 822)

My charging port has become extremely flaky to the point it won't charge  (lights blink on and off) 80-90% of the time.  I see replacement ports on Ebay for $2, but I do not see any videos or reports of anybody fixing their Nokia phones charging ports.  I verified it was not the battery by swapping the battery with another phone and charging it successfully on that phone.  I love my WP, but this is first time I have ever had a charging port take down a phone.

I have tried about 6 or 7 now -- when you have a fleet of smart phones or DVP, they seem to accumulate like rabbits.  My interim solution was to purchase an external battery charger for $7 (http://www.ebay.com/itm/New-Battery-Ccharger-for-NOKIA-BP-4W-BP4W-LUMIA-810-T-MOBILE-822-VERIZON-US-PLUG-/161136057764?pt=US_Cell_Phone_PDA_Chargers&hash=item2584751da4), which beat the $50+ for a wireless charging option. (replacement back cover and Qi charging pad)

When I had a charging port problem similar to yours I sent it to Nokia and they fixed it at no charge. Since Nokia returned my Nokia 822, I've converted it to charge wirelessly and I will never go back! I bought:

 

Wireless Charging Battery Cover for $27.77   http://www.ebay.com/itm/321300690533?ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1439.l2649

 

QI Wireless Charger Charging Pad for $17.48     http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00GDWMYIU/ref=cm_sw_r_tw_dp_.YNbtb19A3ZPNSVZ

 

For a total of $45.25. I like the battery charging idea as well. I may buy one of those chargers since Nokia sent me an extra battery.
