    So im looking to get a data cable and a charging cable.

    I didnt really want to just search for EVO data cable because then all that shows up is $10 cables, which i think is a bit much.

    Is the connection a USB Micro B?

    Does anyone have any recommendations (on Amazon would be preferable) for a data cable and for a charging only cable? From reading around it sounds like there are some cheap cables out there that dont cut it.

    Thanks

    It's a Micro USB cable... Here is a link to a 3' from MonoPrice.com... It's not Amazon, but it's much cheaper and their products are top notch!
    For only $0.83 each when QTY 50+ purchased - USB 2.0 A Male to Micro 5pin Male 28/28AWG Cable - 3ft | USB 2.0 Cables - Micro-B Type

    I've bought both this and this. Both work fine.

    Go to the sprint store and tell them you lost yours, they may have a few laying around. Any micro-USB cable will work, I use one from the Pre and another from a Blackberry
