    I don't know if it's just me, but my bold 9700 is still brand new and is having problems with the usb cable that it came with. I am using my boy-friends now but it's his charger for his mophie.

    Anyways....which is better to purchase the Smartphone Experts USB retractable cable or just the regular one. I'm guessing the non-retractable one. But let me know it would be appreciated!

    I wouldn't buy the retractable one but that is my opinion

    Please someone let me know if you have problems with this? Or maybe it's been plugged into the laptop too long I don't know. That sounds a little stupid. But I am new to this. I would love some feedback

    Get a charging pod with a new adaptor from ShopCB. The charging pod works through the contacts at the bottom of the device instead of the USB.

    I agree with jcp007, you're best bet would be to just get a charging pod. Totally removes the need to use the usb port for anything but syncing with your computer. If you get an app to sync it via bluetooth or wifi that would render using the usb port useless except for the occasional I'm in my car and far away from anything moment. You could just get a spare battery and use a spare battery charger that way you can just hot swap the batteries when you're running low instead of plugging it into charge.

    Synching with the USB will be faster than BT.
