I just bought 3 new cables from monoprice.com, with shipping they were only $7. Not sure where your getting yours but I love monoprice, there cables are always top notch.I keep having issues with my cables not charging, I buy a new cable about once every three moths. Same issue with my old phone. Those micro usb's are fragile. But a new cable always does the trick for me. Luckily not the phone port that's goes out.
