    Good find. Monoprice.com and Cellphoneshop.net are always good sources to get cheap cables too.

    I think Monoprice would have a better deal. I love NewEgg but Monoprice is THE place for cables or any lengths.

    Yeah I realize it is not the cheapest price but I prefer dealing with Newegg than eBay.

    The last time I bought a cable from eBay for .99 the connector got stuck in my phone the first time I used it. Had to use a pair of pliers to get it out! Luckily it did not damage the phone but it was an inconvenience and I ended up having to buy another cable.

    Never heard of Monoprice, I will have to check them out next time.

    I just bought a 6' micro USB cable on ebay for 2.97 incl shipping. Just search "6 ft micro USB cable" and you will find some. This was from a US seller with almost 100% feedback, so should get to me pretty quick.

    If you want shorter ones, there are lots of 99 cm ones on ebay for only about $1 to $1.50 incl shipping as I recall, but I think most come from Hong Kong, so you won't get them real quick. Great value if you can wait. FYI, 99 cm = 3.248 ft

    all A/V guys know about monoprice.com. best place for cables of any kind. ~$1 for the usb micro cables. my question to you all is this:

    the included motorola wall usb charger is listed as 850mA, the ipod wall usb charger is 1,000mA. monoprice has a 500 ma and a 1,000ma. related, the vehicle charger.

    does anybody know if either of the linked wall chargers will work, or if motorola's one is required? related, will the generic vehicle charger ($3 for charger + cable) can be used in lieu of the verizon-bought one ($30)?

    TIA

    I buy *all* my cables at Monoprice. Their price is amazing and their quality is pretty top-notch.

    Probably the same product and I didn't pay shipping. Hope these come in soon -- so many useless chargers right now.
