    usb cable died.
    wtf cable just died over night. im sure its the cable as it will still charge via the charger but nothing happens at all when i plug in the usb.

    i heard they were badly built but that takes the micky just a tad

    Have you tried another USB cable ?

    On the G1 you dont have to use the stock cable. Not sure about your phone.

    its a usb supermini on the samsung rather than 4pin mini. the cable is very flimsy and wont even charge by usb but will change by charger (which uses same socket)

    The cable is a standard MicroUSB cable and should be available in most computer stores

    The standard USB cable that comes with the phone works fine for charging. Whenever I connect the phone to a PC, the phone starts charging (provided that the PC is on, obviously).

    Sorry to thread bump but does that cable you replaced it with work ok for firmware updating? If so you got a link to where you got it? A couple that I've tried won't flash.
