You can pick up the standard USB cable at any Dollar store.

@Liz Motorola does not provide a USB with this model. Bob is right, best bet is to pick one up at a local store.

you can pick up a cable at any local electronic store. just ask for a micro USB to USB cable. be careful of the cheaper cables. I don't know if it's still the case, but years ago they had data cables and charge cables which are cheaper, but charge cables only allow you to charge the phone, not transfer data from phone to pc. I learn that the hard way

Be careful with cheap Dollar store cables. They can overheat and catch on fire, though this is highly unlikely. Its not something I would risk with a device i use everyday. Doesn't mean you have to get a super expensive one, Just make sure it can handle the amps it needs to charge and you should be fine.

P.S i have used dollar store cables and they are usually fine. Just dont want something bad to happen.
