Do any of you know how I can fix a broken phone charger cord? I peeled off the rubber coating and twisted the wires together but that didn't work. My friend told me I have to put it under a flame so they can melt together -- and I've seen him do it before in video game cords and it has worked -- but if I could leave fire out of it, that would be great lol.

Any tricks?

I don't know. I'd just buy a new charger.

I fixed it, then decided to fiddle around with it some more and broke it again LOL.

I can't get a new one -- the place is closed Saturday to Monday fpr Rememberance Day. Will have to wait until tomorrow. :( Darn, I had some important calls coming in this weekend and it's my only phone.

Do you have a target nearby? They have compatible chargers for most phones.

Nope, no Target here -- I don't believe we have them anywhere in Canada? :confused:

I'll take a visit to the mall later -- perhaps they are open today (though I can't tell because I can't call them :rolleyes: ).

Jordan, everything should be open up there....I know it is down here (well, except maybe for the "Mom and Pop" stores. The only businesses that are closed for the stat today are banks and liquor stores. I know the bigger ones like Wal Mart, Safeway and all other grocery stores are open today. Which is sort of good. I remember when all businesses used to be closed on a stat holiday. Now, the only two they respect are Easter and Christmas Day.

Edit: I just called London Drugs to fill some prescriptions and every they are open today. You can certainly find a charger there. Good luck.

I am with Borzoi, hand it to my husband, lol. I know he has done it many times exactly like you said you did. I can't imagine why it won't work, maybe try again. For a better connection.

Your pups are absolutely gorgeous!!!!!!!! I would love to hug them. :)
