    Probably just the price. I have a cheapie that I got for .99c on Ebay.
    Works great.

    Hello!

    Cheap cables may not support your phone's modem functionality. For example,
    PL-2303-based cables can be used for local data transfer only ( Nokia 6020
    and PL-2303-based cables, for example). Unofficial cables may not be
    supported by official software.

    On hardware level PL-2303 cables are compatible only with CA-42/DKU-5
    designed phones and don't work for DKU-2/CA-53 ones.

    PS: we support non-original PL-2303 cables in our software.

    "Third party cables" doesn't always mean PL-2303 - there are plenty of
    DKU-2 compabible 3rd party cables and non-PL-2303 types also. Whether
    a cable supports the modem functionality depends on the wiring of the
    cable, not whether it uses a PL-2303 chip. Very often they do.

    It is just not true to say that a cable containing the PL-2303 chipset,
    designed for a 6020, will not support modem or official software. In
    most cases they will.
