    it will require very careful soldering; V3's in general can be a pain to open as well.
    If you can locate a cheap one with a damaged screen you may be able to remove the port from that one and replace it.
    Use what works for you!

    I have too many phones, with too many carriers. This is not a good thing.

    Heck, It might actually be easier to fix the one with a broken screen, using the screen on the razr that has the bad charging port.

    This guy thinks like me. Ports are a pain to replace...it can be done but I hope you can solder.
    I do not understand it therefore it is magic.

    Soldering can be a pain. I had to be "certified" for soldering in a previous career. But in repairing aircraft instruments, soldering had nothing on dealing with those freaking tiny springs inside the altimeters and such. Ugh. I certainly don't miss that aspect of the job.

    The V3's charging port is one of the very few Moto miniUSB ports that, IMO, weren't bad at all to change. But you don't want to take it off one phone and put it on another. Doing so would require using just a soldering iron and you're extremely likely to pull some pads off when you do that. Using a heat gun is the better way to go on this, if you know how to use it.

    I'm going to second that about just switching the screens
