so my boyfriend just bought a 3rd party charging jack and plugged it into his iphone 3g, noticed it wouldn't charge for some reason unplugged it and saw that there was a piece of the actual port missing (the plastic male piece inside the port i guess it would be). he removed the broken piece and now it will charge on the 3rd party jack but not on the apple jack that came with his phone. does anyone know if this will cause more problems down the road, if it would just be easier to try and replace the port, or how to get ahold of the 3rd party jack manufacturer so we can punch them in the face for selling us a faulty charging jack that freakin broke his iphone. this last was a joke, but seriously any ideas or intel would be mucho appreciated.

Replace the dock connector assembly. The part is cheap and fairly simple to replace. Contact me for the part or any help you need.
