Is this normal? Im a little worried that it will get looser over time.

The wall charger has significantly less wiggle..I would just like to know if your data cable wiggles too??


Im trying to figure out if this is normal

Thanks!

Mine doesn't wiggle in the slightest. It's as stiff as a priest in a boys' school.

I have the same stiffness whether I use the one that came with the phone or any of the others I have lying round. I guess it only takes a fraction of a mm for you to get a wobble. I guess just be careful to always pull it out correctly, just to be sure.

Mine wiggles too. I imagine it's more dependent on the cable than the phone.

I was actually worried about the same thing a few weeks ago as mine wiggles. But I tried different cables on different devices I have includuding a blackberry and they all have a little wiggle to them. I never lose data connection when connected to PC when flashing or charge connection...not sure if you do. If not, I wouldn't worry as I think they do tend to have some wiggle after a while.
