    They do vary. I bought an inexpensive one from a phone shop, and despite all assurances it will charge my phone but not work as a usb lead. But an even cheaper one I bought from amazon works fine for everything - having been stung once I checked the reviews to make sure other buyers were finding it fully functional.

    I guess if in doubt buy a manufacturer's own cable.

    EVERY Usb cable I have tried on my phone SGH-i717d has worked. That's weird.

    My mom's blackberry is the same story as yours though. I don't understand how that works.
