    Several weeks ago I dropped my Classic into a plate of ravioli. The part that was hard to clean was the USB jack on the bottom, but I managed to clean it with paper towel and compressed air. The phone seems to work ok except I have to move the charging cable around a bit to get it to start charging.

    After fooling with it the other night for several minutes and unable to get charging to startI rebooted the phone. It instantly started charging. I have done the reboot trick for a few nights now and it seems a reliable workaround. So what I thought was some kind of mechanical issue may be a software issue or combination.

    Model: SQC100-4

    It's likely to be hardware, the device not being able to read the USB after X time elapses. Take it to any shop and have them clean the unit. It's usually a very cheap service and can be done in less than 20 minutes.

    Take it to any shop
    Thanks. Do you mean a T-Mobile store, or one of those kiosks at the mall ?

    Mall ones. But I wound not rule Tmo out, if it's still under warranty. You could take it in and see what they say.

    BB itself could be contacted too, again, if warranty is good.

    Once your Classic is all cleaned up, I recommend a set of these little fellows -- one rubber plug for the earphone jack and the other for the charging port. Should help to keep the ravioli out.
