    In my experience, definitely from some internet outlet. If price is an issue, don't go to your local carrier store or the phone equipment section of a warehouse store. I found a net dealer who offered a usb extension cable, 3 m long, for what equals to app. 2 us dollars plus shipping.

    To me it doesn't matter that it's an extension cable, i.e. it doesn't have a micro usb plug that goes directly in the phone. Instead I plug it in between the charger and the short, bundled cable.

    Get the 2.0. 3.0 won't benefit you and I'm not even sure it's backwards compatible with 2.0 cables from an extension standpoint.

    I'm in Denmark, and I don't know where you are, so I'm not sure it would make sense to mention it. Anyhow, anyone in Denmark who needs inexpensive A/V or computer cables of any sort, would do themselves a favour by checking out www.av-cables.dk
