I called the Verizon tech guys, 877-649-0844. He had me install the Tech Coach app so he was in my phone with me. He got rid of the moisture detection notification and the charging issue. Said that this is the only way to get rid of that issue. He saw that my phone was dry. Works great now!


Thank you very much! This solved the problem for me. I did have my phone in my pocket and was walking in the rain, so it is very possible moisture got into my USB port. Not sure if it’s a coincidence or not, but I also downloaded a system update this morning.
