So I'm in Orlando for the week and my 'high speed' wireless connection at the hotel is anything but faster-than-dialup. I left my data cable at home (go figure), and I've visited about 10 different stores with no success in finding a darn cable. Any ideas where they sell them, if they even do?

Isn't it a fairly standard cable? Can you pick one up at CompUSELESS?

A standard USB to Mini-USB should work just fine.

You can actually get them at a Lowes, I got a retractable one made by Phillips for charging my BB in the car with my iPod USB lighter adapter

The thing that baffles me is that standard charger won't work on a RAZR and vice-versa. Kind of strange, considering both are supposedly the same thing. But yeah, finally made my way to CompUSA (after T-Mobile, Cingular, RadioShack, Circuit City, Verizon in Circuit City, NexTel, another Verizon store, a generic store, Office Depot, and Wal-Mart) and finally found two with 'BlackBerry' specified.

Anyhow, for reference purposes, they are the Emerge Retrak ($19.99; Model: ETCABLERU2LBM5; USB end lights up a neon blue) and Fone Gear Retractable USB Charger ($9.99; no model number; although it specifies that it fits Audiovox, BlackBerry and Motorola). I'm using the Emerge one now (yeah, I liked the blue light ..heh) and am connected through my handset.
