    Is it me? I have a G2 touch UK and the USB cable that plugs into the phone end has not got a mini usb port but rather something shaped like it but not quite the same. Tried a usb to mini usb adapter on it and it wouldn't fit. What connection is it? It's not micro usb either.

    Really confused. :confused:

    A normal mini USB should fit, but you have to get it exactly lined up.

    I use a normal miniUSB at work, most (if not all) HTC phones are like it

    Ahhhh. LOL!

    I looked at it and due to the odd shape thought it wouldn't fit. Just tried it and yeah it works.

    Haha. Feel stupid now.

    Thanks for the help. :)

    No problem, I was exactly the same when I picked up my HTC Touch Pro. I went over to XDA and was like "Where can I get a charging cable?", they all told me mini-USB is fine and I kept saying "But my socket is a totally differant shape, mayby they have a differant plug in Europe?".... I felt like a numpty when I realised it fit anyway! :eek:

    It's an ExtUSB connector, most HTC phones have them, and it's an internal HTC standard. It has the usual pinouts for USB, plus extra connectors for audio (so you can plug a hands-free kit directly into that port).

    XDADeveloperWiki - Ext USB

    It was pretty obselete from the day it was conceived as most hands-free kits are bluetooth now.
