    Is this for real! I will let you know if it is since I ordered one.

    I hope it is as I need a charger for work.

    No different than any other Micro USB cable. The "price" may be 1 cent, but shipping is $2.98. You can get these on ebay for $1.48 with free shipping.

    Cool stuff. I actually had broken my cable, went to the sprint store and told the guy, and he gave me a new one for free. Pretty cool.

    They also have the original charger that comes with the phone on Amazon for $6.79 plus $4.00 shipping.

    Don't have enough posts to provide the URL though.

    As mentioned above, monoprice is the best place to get spare cables. I ordered two from there recently. They also ship very fast. I ordered two cables for $4.11 shipped. If you use monoprice these are the ones you want two would be $4.51 shipped right now:

    I got the one from amazon.. it sucks.. doesn't work with the touchstone (after being modified) it kept saying charging battery, then it'd go away and then do it over and over again. file transfering was really slow it detected the Pre as a usb 1.0 device.. so transfers took forever..

    I just received 2 from Monoprice.com. They work flawlessly, just as advertised. TWO for ~$4.50 shipped. What a bargain!!?!

    This does raise a question for me tho.... I use dnsmasq.palm.conf to assign an ip address to my PC USB port based on MAC Address so I can tether and connect via putty and other SSH clients.

    When a new webos version is released and the palm is updated, a new MAC address is assigned to the USB interface. Cool, I get that!!!


    But, "why come" I got a new MAC address when I used a new non-Palm [MonoPrice] cable??? While waiting on the MonoPrice cable, I got Sprint to give me another Palm cable... i kept bytching at them....and the MAC address remained the same. This is very interesting to me!!
