Title:

Micro-USB power port is broken

Text:

After only two weeks, the HTC Evo's micro-USB power port failed, maintaining a connection only when I press on the connector in one specific position. I can pay Sprint $120 for a new phone (theyThey won't cover this kind of damage, even though the problem is an obvious factory defect or design flawflaw.), or I can send it intoto HTC for repair (paying for outbound shipping and waiting up to 10 days to get my Evo back). How difficult would it be to re-solder the connector for a non-expertnon-expert to resolder the connector?
