    The thread below doesnt have any answers. Anyway I am getting my incredible tomorrow, will I be able to use my micro usb adapters or not? The charging port looks to big for a micro in pictures, but anyone that has one already that could tell me would be great.

    Thanks.

    It is different looking because of the TV out cable.

    Anyone know of a 3rd party vendor for the 12 pin micro USB cable. i would like to have a second to connect to my work computer and can't seem to find one online. The ones I find are 5 pin models which are not compatible with the HTC proprietary cable.

    This is the USB connector that the manual states is standard for the Incredible, "micro-USB (12-pin micro-USB 2.0)"

    monoprice USB cord for cheap - works great!

    I bought three of these (car, home, work) and they are working great - and for $1.63 - you can have one everywhere. Just get a DC powered USB port for the car and you are set.

    So if I were to get something like this:

    Amazon.com: Dc USB Charger: Electronics

    It should work fine? It couldn't somehow damage the phone overtime? I don't understand why Verizon has one for 25 bucks when this is 2 XP

    I'm still using the micro usb charger from my storm and it works fine. Any micro usb will work. No worries.

    5 pin would be for standard charging/data/grounding.
    12 pins for charging/data/video out/grounding.

    Here is the typical pin out for 12 pin.

    1 USB VCC +5v
    2 USB Data -
    3 USB Data +
    4 N / C
    5 USB GND
    6 Left Audio +
    7 Sense
    8 Audio - (GND)
    9 Switch (Talk)
    10 Right Audio +
    11 Mic +
    12 Chassis Ground (GND)

    I'm guessing one in there is video out for the Incredible. Perhaps, 7? Although, for giggles companies like to change a few of these around just to keep their cables from crossing over. Go Figure.

    Thanks, that's what I figured but wanted assurance that a 5 pin USB micro would download data and not just charge. It's not very clear from the manual that is the case.
