It is difficult for me. I have a Captivate i897 and the port is dead. I have the new port sitting here and I have two different soldering irons. My heavy duty iron will not get hot enough to melt the solder. I am using desoldering braid as well. I had no luck, so I am in the market for a new motherboard but those are impossible to find. now I am trying to buy a cheap i897. I really love these phones. *I know this thread is over a year old. Did you ever get the phone fixed?
