Phone not charging and smelled like burning

My phone was charging in the car and began to overheat and then smelled like burning. I took the battery out, charged again. I repeated this several times. At this point the phone won't charge at all (phone, wall, etc). and it is dead. The phone is not under warranty AND my upgrades are effective until August. Anyone have a solution?

I went to a Verizon store and they could not help me. They agreed, that it smells like something was burning and they saw the charred marks inside the charging port. I know it is the phone and not the battery.

I am concerned that the phone overheated to the point where it is fried. UGH! Such an expensive phone to not work anymore! HELP!

Thanks for help anyone!
