How do I determine, by sight or examination, whether I have a data or charging terher cable?

For a phone? Does this have anything to do with Ubuntu?

I have never known a USB cable that could not do both, except one cable that is far too long for proper USB communications.

I know that I never could get Ubuntu 12.04 to properly see files on my Android phone (Samsung S3) despite everything I tried mtp related, so I resorted to ssh/scp/sftp over WiFi (ConnectBot, AndFTP, SSHServer apps on phone). But 14.04 has always simply worked with most any USB to microUSB cable (except that super long one).
