    I am looking to buy a new Mini-USB Synchronization Cable, where I can I find one? The one on sprint costs 24.99, is there a better place to buy it?

    If you have a standard usb mini cable at home use that. Most digital cameras and devices are coming with them these days, and work fine on the Hero despite having a slightly different connector, it still fits and works fine.

    Also, check ebay for cables, never let me down yet.

    Here's a link to one I bought. If it is too long for what you want just get a small zip wire tie and rollup what you don't use. I know there are probably some cheaper ones on the "bay" but I felt better buying the moto one (even though the phone is not moto). Worked great 2.99 out the door with free shipping. *This is not my personal auction*

    I got the one I'm using from the dollar store. $1.05 including tax. My next choice would have been http://www.monoprice.com . Their stuff is CHEAP but it works!

    The USB port on the phone is slightly bigger than a normal mini USB in that it has one corner of the plug expanded. There is still one long side and one short side to the plug so a normal mini USB fits in there so long as you align the two longs sides. Having said that, mine is a GSM hero, not sure about sprint...I'm in Canada.

    We have some BB wall chargers and they work. Instead of putting the "face up" mark of the charger facing up, turn it upside down and it fits perfectly. :)

    thanks guys, very good info. I was skeptical b/c the connector is slightly different.

    Every HTC device has been like this for a few years. I believe there is an extra pin that carriers audio for HTC's usb headphones etc
