2.0 out of 5 stars The cable sent is not the cable shown., October 17, 2009
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I ordered this cable because the image shows a real style Apple cable with rounded edges. I have an OtterBox case that requires a rounded edge cable in order to charge it. I received this cable and it is a generic square ended cable, which is completely useless to me. Though it might work it would require I remove the phone from the case every time I wanted to use it, which is not an option.

I agree. The main image is an Apple cable, and one of the alternate images is the actual product. Very misleading.

What I would expect is for sellers to actually put up pictures of the real item they are selling! By the way on the ad it read USB cable for iPhone by Apple. Anyone would think this is an apple product. I am glad i read this review and for that I thank you.

I expect that the product being shown is the product being sold. If the product had been exactly what was shown - and had then subsequently not worked then I would have said the same thing, "What do I expect for $2.00." But the fact was that the cable shipped to me was not what was shown, and had the actual cable been shown I never would have purchased it. Either way, it has a home now and is being put to use.

What I expect is to be able to search Amazon and find the real cable for purchase. All I'm finding are the $2 imitations. I'm willing to spend the money, but where the heck are the real Apple cables?!? Amazon is getting saturated with these shady companies.

When looking for genuine products search for the word OEM, which means original equipment manufacturer. That should help you find some. Personally I've started purchasing my iPhone cables from an external site for $6.99 each. I just bought three actually and they are all original Apple cables and have never caused me any problems (I've purchased from that person before, including Jawbone chargers and cables).

Thank you for the info. I have an Otter case and need the true iPhone cable. This "OEM" helps me a lot.
