How to repair USB-C connector?
1

The industry claimed that USB-C has more plug-unplug cycles than micro-USB. They lie.

Within a year, my Nokia 7.1 phone is unable to charge because the connector is loose or disconnected. Last time I wiggled it the charge went to 100%, so the battery seems OK. Wiggle does nothing now.

Cell Phone Repair (CPR) says they can't fix it. Anyone know of an alternative?

P.S. Found this in an amazon review:

F.U. NOKIA! !!! ***UPDATE*** Replaced the charging port myself that I bought online that cost less than USD 3.00. Saw a YouTube tutorial on how to replace the port. Took me less than 30 mins to replace super easy. Bought a magnetic USB C charger cable so that the charging port doesn't get worn out and loose which is the common issue on all Nokia phones.
