RDSOK and Thom, it is a Motorola Universal USB wall charger, so it has the USB wire obviously. The charger is 3 and a half months old and has no problem connecting the HTC Thunderbolt or Samsung Charge the first time everytime thats why I didn't see a problem with why it wouldn't work with the Motorola Bionic........Verizon just sent me the Bionic today to replace the Samsung under warranty since I was having dead air calls. And as all refurbished phones that come from Verizon it came with no user manual and no cords. It came by itself and a new battery and new back were sent separate. Verizon could not even explain why it would not connect to my laptop, when I explained to them that I could sync the Charge and the Thunderbolt using my USB cord. Their only thing was take it into a store which the nearest is 30 miles away or wait until Monday and they would send the cord that would come with the Bionic if I had got it new. Though in another thread on this forum a person says they are having the same issue "charging only with no USB drop down connection menu" when connected to their laptop using the cable that came with their Bionic. SO with that said I am wondering if it is not just the actual phone itself, but I will wait for the cord until Monday and see if that resolves the issue and if not I will go to Verizon..........I appreciate your responses though very much, thank you..........I've been through 5 thunderbolts from April when I got it brand new, until September because of power cycling issues and various other things. From September until December I went through 4 Samsung Charges for dead air calls, power cycling, and phone just locking up. So if this is the biggest concern I have to deal with when it comes to the Bionic than it is no sweat cause I can still use the phone for everything, just a pain when I want to transfer pictures and such but I can do the old school method of emailing the things to myself.
