    Hello there,
    Please I have an issue with my galaxy S6 charging port, I can’t charge my phone with the Fast charge feature, eventhough I tried a bunch of different original chargers, and it won’t be recognized by the laptop, so I have no way to transfer my data (Except of course if I use some Wifi media sharing files application).
    I took it for repair but even after changing the part, the problem remains the same, does anyone know the source of this problem?

        I can’t help with your charging issue but you can remove your data by using an ftp server on the phone to link up with a program such as FileZilla on your PC. There are guides on the internet to help with this. I had to do this as my phone will not charge and had to remove the data another way.

        Hope this helps a little

    I am trying to replace the back glass and the charging port assy on my S6. The problem is that this phone is a c spire S6 which is model SM-G920R7 and for all intents and purposes this model doesn’t exist on the internet for parts. I assume it uses the same parts as another model out there (looking like the SM-G920F ?), can anyone confirm or point me in a better direction so I don’t buy the wrong parts?
