I had bought an HTC ReZound from a third-party on Craiglist, and only received the phone. I thought a normal micro USB cable would work from my old Samsung phone, but it didn't work well. The cable fit but it was a loose fit so the cable wiggled a lot and would not stay in place. I got tired of having to balance the cable just right in order to charge my phone so I went ahead and bought this cable. The listing says for use by HTC tablets, but it worked for my phone as well. Now I feel a lot better about having a regular, solid fitting charging cable for my phone.
