Problem with micro USB connector

I bought a Yun 10 days ago and with no big effort the micro USB connector just fell out the board when I plugged a cable.
Just now I could see how feeble is the connection between the two, considering it is probably the most used one!
So, first, I would like to suggest a revision on this part of the hardware.
Second, to ask: is it possible to sold it again? or I will have to rely only on VIN to power and WIFI to code???

I'm not sure if it' s gonna be easy to solder that thing back .. :( :(

Return it for a replacement.

If you start trying to fix it you may void your entitlement to a replacement.

Well, I contacted the seller - Sparkfun - to ask for directions…

Let us know what happens ..

They were very nice at Sparkfun and sent me a replacement!
Also, they told me that it is possible to sold it, as the pads are still there.
Still, it is better to take more care when handling the Yun!

Those are good news… :smiley: :smiley: :smiley: :smiley:
Did you send the broken one back ?

Not yet, they asked me to wait until further notice.
