It has been 3 days and I'm still not able to charge through the port. I keep getting the message that there is moisture detected. I've done what was recommended here (blow into port, shake phone to see if water comes out). The phone has not been exposed to water.
After reboot, the message won't come up, but won't charge. After first charge post-reboot, message will come up again. I've only had the phone less than 30 days. Will this moisture message ever go away?

**FYI - the phone hasn't been near water, it hasn't gotten wet, i don't take it in the bathroom or the kitchen etc and neither has the charger**
I went to charge my phone and suddenly the error message came up saying moisture detected in port, i have tried to clean it with a cotton bud, tissue, tried blowing on it, lightly shaking it, putting a cool fan on it. Anything I try the message doesn't go away. Its now been on for 5 days straight, i can't charge my phone normally and have to use a wireless charger (which I don't like as they aren't that great) it's not the charger as I have tried it in another phone and works fine, this is the official charger also. I have tried different charger but it won't let me due to the constant moisture message.
I dont understand what is wrong with it.
I have tried clearing the USB data in settings as told by samsung and checked it in safe mode, checked for updates and as a desperate attempt I have tried to factory reset but still shows this message as soon as the phone starts up again.
I dont know what to do at all! I take very good care of my phone and it doesn't even have a single scratch on it. Why is this happening?
