    ... 20 bucks!!! That's almost half as much I paid for the phone itself! Not like MonoPrice will ever carry these!

    HP Veer Magnetic USB Cable, 5 ft. | HP« Official Store

    Luckily I have a Touchstone installed in my car, if I had to buy the cable only to use my car charger, I would totally flip.

    On the other hand, the magnetic 3.5mm adapter seems not bad, at 10 bucks.

    It's a Late Goodbye, such a Late Goodbye.

    Subsidize it. Don't buy the USB adapter yourself and let your friends and relatives buy one instead.

    That is absolutely insane. But then, cables have always been overpriced from most sources, especially from hardware manufacturers.

    Yeah, it's cheaper to buy a TS on Amazon (which often come with the cable and power adapter in my experience).

    I really only need the magnetic cable for usb work.

    It'd be cheaper to by the TS and charger from Verizon right now since they're clearing stock.

    ummmmmm...what you "paid" is not what its VALUE is. The phone is subsidized. You 'pay' for it over the two year contract.



    If I give you a discount on a brand new Mercedes and sell it to you for $1000......are you going to complain that "tires cost as much as the car"?

    Correct, but for my needs its mostly charging. Once I have Preware and music I don't really connect it to the computer. It's nice to keep in my travel bag and trunk so I won't have to worry about being somewhere without a charger.
