I have a just over a year old Samsung Galaxy ace 2x. I just recently had a charger break on me, so I had to purchase a brand new charging cable (about 3 weeks ago). My phone died overnight last night, and when I realized this morning it had died and went to plug it in, it will not charge. It will vibrate when the power button is turned on and it will read GM- (whatever the numbers are) and then it will shut back off again. I tried using three different charging blocks (one being from my ipad and is working to charge my ipad as we speak) and it still will not charge. The only way I can get a charge on my phone is by plugging it into a USB port on my laptop, and after about 10 minutes it disconnects itself and shuts off. Not sure what the problem is?

Battery or the charging port. In any case, it sounds like a hardware problem with your phone.

I don't know if it's worth repairing for that particular phone, but I'd guess that it probably isn't.
