I have a Verizon Galaxy S4. Going through the airport the other day it just stopped working on me completely. Dropped it off for a free diagnosis yesterday. They came back saying it is the Charge Controller IC on the board went bad. Said I can charge the battery externally if to make it work.
Is there a way to fix this? The repair place said theres not.
Is there a case that has its own controller in it so I can continue to just charge the phone rather than swap batteries.
Any other thoughts?
