    Default iPhone not recognized and won't charge
    I got an iPhone in the other day for a repair/color swap. I started tearing it apart yesterday but couldn't get the phone to charge. The frame was bent near the mute switch so I swapped everything over. In the process I noticed the home button port was damaged so I replaced the charge port. When I was done I plugged the phone in and all seemed well. About an hour later the phone was only at 4% battery life. I figured the battery was probably shot because it looked damaged when I opened the phone. Replaced that and it still won't charge. If the phone is off and I plug it in then it boots up like normal. Also when I plug it into the computer it says it is an unrecognized device. Any thoughts? Did I put another faulty charge port in or is something else wrong? Haven't tried restoring it yet because it is for a client but I figure the odds of the other charge port not working are pretty low. The phone will stay on as long as it is plugged in, but it will not charge at all.

    Nope. It just never charges. It'll stay on if plugged into the wall or computer but the computer doesn't recognize it either.

    Just updating for anyone who has this issue in the future. It was the charge port. I replaced it with a faulty part, so after replacing it again with another new one, it works great.
