Retractable Micro-USB Cable – Retractable USB to Micro 5P Data/Charging Cable (60CM-Length) Reviews

Pros:
It works in the Nokia 3120 Classic (data only, does not work with power as expected).
It works the same as the CA-101, except it is better since it is retractable.
It allows the Nokia 3120 Classic to be firmware upgraded.
It allows proper access to all the data functions (e.g. address book sync, calendar, etc). Using Bluetooth, address book sync doesn't work so the cable is vital to back everything up.
It includes special locking nubs unique to micro-USB to stop the cable falling out accidently. This is one of the advantages of micro-USB over mini-USB
Cable is thicker than other retractable cables, so it is very good build quality.
Being retractable it is neat and tidy and very small.
Cons:
It is a bit hard to put in and pull out of the Nokia 3120 classic. However this is probably the way micro-USB is meant to work - it won't fall out accidently.
Other:
Don't let your kids play with it or they could pull the end points off. It's not indestructible although it'll survive a bit of pulling.
Bottomline:
You should get it if you have a Nokia 3120 classic or other phone that needs a micro-USB cable, such as almost all the new phones designed in China. You'll need it eventually anyway so get it while its hot.
