Hi all, anyone else having problems with their charging cable? Basically mine no longer goes into my desire! I've compared my cable to my partners and it looks like the 2 locking pins on mine are stuck in the lock position, like the cable is plugged into the phone. I just can't seem to get them to release! I can't push the cable into the phone as these little pins must click into little grooves or something that possible shuts a latch that holds the cable in place. My girlfriends cable goes in fine though, so at least I can still charge it. Has anyone got an idea on how to sort my cable?

the htc charging cable is sh*t quality imo, My phone fell off my desk while it was charging and it stopped working aftestill r that. Thankfully, nokia uses the same usb cable when I was using the e71. Their's is much more sturdier. My desire has fallen from my desk a few times now and it's still good to go. I'd try and get a nokia usb cable if you're looking for a new one. Just my 2 cents. =)

Are you saying that HTC cable is bad if u drop your phone to floor a lot?
Is this USB cable only thing that keeps your phone on your desk?

MicroUSB cables are cheap to come by So a replacement isn't exactly going to cost a bomb.
