    Default cell phone charger

    I just got a new phone. I use Tracfone, and got the $19.95 special, so while it is "new" this is an older model. It is a Samsung model SGH-T245G. It did not come with a cable to charge in the vehicle, so I wanted to buy one. Neither Samsung or Tracfone offer any accessories for this model any more. I found on line what I thought was the correct one. It is a generic SAM T209. But the connector to the phone is different. I don't even know what you call these. Both look like a thin version of USB, but the one that actually fits the phone is a wee scocie bit wider and not as thin as what came on the T209 charger.

    SO....is there such a thing as an adapter between these gizmos???

    By the way...I am out a whole 15 cents for the one I bought, so no biggy there!

    i just came across a samsung ace car charger cord which has a usb end on it. used to be my work phone last year. i think it may be the same thing you need. i may even have the end that the usb goes in to convert it to a lighter outlet. freebie if you want it.

    Thanks very much for the help. Here are some pics. In the photos, the one on the left is what connects to my phone. The one on the right is the one I bought. It is actually the same as for my old LG phone ( btw I would pay $50 if someone could FIND that phone, just because it is driving me crazy where I might have left it!!!!)

    Anyway, I will probably drop in to radio shack and see if they have some kind of adapter or whatever.
    Thanks again,

    That's just the Regular Original Old Samsung connector.

    You can get a charger at Wal-Mart, for about 10 $

    Have a great day.

    Yes, I found one at Frye's that fit. The one I got also said 'samsung' on it, so apparently they have used more than one type! Anyway, thanks all for the input!

    I was going to mention, jimbo, to look into a universal cellphone charger. There was a moment, awhile ago, when I purchased one at the last minute. My phone died and was left hopeless. I'm content that you found a charger for your phone. I suggest that you should buy another one as a backup.
