Thanks for the additional information ms_note3user! I had a similar experience after the software update and I was able to resolve with a hard reset http://vz.to/1lWXqsc please give it a try. Make sure to UNCHEK Automatic Reset at step 3.

Hello bms_note3user, help is here front and center! Have you tried testing the charge on the phone with an alternate charger? Is there any physical or water damage on the charger or charging port of the phone? You are able to take the device to the store for a hands on evaluation. View closest store to your area here http://bit.ly/3SdsA

I took it to a store last week and they said it has something to do with the last software update. They tried charging it at the store and got the same message. There hasn't been any physical or water damage to my phone. The only way I can get it to hold a charge is by using my car charger. The other two chargers (and the one at the Verizon store) gave me the same message.

@verizonwirelesscustomersupport If I do a hard restart, will I lose the files and photos stored on my phone?

Hello teachermama10, The Factory Data Reset does remove all data including files and photos. I understand that making sure your phone information is backed up is of the upmost importance. You can ensure your phone data is backed up using these links: http://vz.to/1uM5mwZ and http://vz.to/1vEzYok. You can also try our great Verizon Cloud feature as an option for backing up and syncing your phone info! Check it out: http://vz.to/1s4GctA.

Ttg1, we always want the very best for your phone and are sorry to hear that you are experiencing this. There are many things that could impact that fast charging function so let's dig right in/ Do you recall adding any recent apps, games or software? Has there been any physical or liquid damage to the phone? When attempting an alternate charger do you receive this same error message? When taking a look at the charger itself, is there any damage?  -LorenB_VZW If my response answered your question please click the _Correct Answer_ button under my response.
