    For future reference, how is one supposed to transfer files from the PC to the phone, and vice versa, since the included turbo charger comes without a USB cable? Second, if one decides not to turbo charge, can the phone be charged "normally"?

    Download airdroid from the play store. It's what I have used.

    I imagine any number of $1 usb cables would do the trick for a file transfer. And yes you can use a normal charger.

    I find WiFi file explorer to be the best.

    And yes, normal charging works just fine... just slower.

    You can transfer files the exact same way you transfered files from your last phone

    I can't tell if that was sarcasm or not. People still use Verizon to transfer their stuff over?

    You can go to any Wal Mart, drugstore, etc and get a micro USB for $5 if do not want to order one.

    The question was connecting to a PC not moving data from old phone to new phone.

    You should be able to use any existing USB cable you have laying around the house.

    Best way that I use to transfer files is either Pushbullet or Portal. Incredibly easy and faster than any cable could do it. Google Drive works well also.

    Hi Guys/Gals,
    So I rec'd my brand spankin new Moto X yesterday and out of the box are the phone unit, the turbo charger cable, and a couple of guides. See below the picture of the turbo charger. My question: Is this the correct cable? Where's the USB connector on the other end? Looks like it permanent attached to the A/C outlet. Thanks for your help!

    That is correct. The turbo charger 25 has a dedicated cable, no USB port.

    Thanks. So I guess my next question is how do I access the SD card from my PC, without a USB connection?

    Do you have another USB cord laying around that you can connect the phone to the computer? If not, do you have an SD card reader that you can put your micro SD card into and put in the computer? Those would seem like the only options unless your computer has bluetooth capabilities.

    Either use another USB cord or you can find a cheap SD card reader

    I have other USB cables from previous phones, Samsung GS2, GS6, and LG L90, but none of them work. I also have SD card reader in the PC itself, but that's not a really good option, since I will have to remove the SD from the phone every time I want to manage my files. And you know how pain in the *** that is to remove the SD card from the phone. You will be removing the SIM card and SD card tray. So the SD card reader is not an option.

    My MPXE has no problem using USB cords. What notifications, if any are you getting? Or is there simply no interaction whatsoever between the PC and the phone?

    When you connect USB to PC, it defaults to "Charging Only". Pull down your notifications, and select the "USB for charging" one. That should bring up a menu (see image). Select "Transfer files (MTP)" and the files on your phone should then be accessible from your PC.

    Guys,
    Appreciate your input and help. I have found the problem. It was 2 bad USB cables from my previous phones and I think it's possible that the USB port on my PC was malfunctioning. So tried another USB cable that was from an LG phone and plugged it into a different USB port on the PC, and voila..the darn thing works! I now can see the image above and am able to select the various options available. Thanks again.
