    1. hold your phone and look at the micro USB connector on the bottom edge of your Skyrocket

    2. you will see a "tongue" inside the USB port.

    3. put something "non metalic" (I used a flat wooden toothpick). Gently, lift up the "tongue"..
    I used a twirling motion on my toothpick to raise the tongue up a little bit. Don't Go PRYING it up...just be gentle because you don't want to break your toothpick inside the phone or break the Tongue.

    I did this and now I do not get the "USB device is not recognized". Give it a try and post here if it worked for you. Spread the word if it does.

    Good Luck!

    Am I doing something wrong? Because I tried it and still no luck. When connected into my pc, my phone says "Connected as media device," but it doesnt show up on my pc.

    Re: Galaxy S2 connection problem:
    Like many of you, I just registered to respond to this problem and tell how I resolved it.
    I too had the USB device not recognised message and could not connect to my PC. I tried many of the suggestions from the internet to no avail..
    I tried the toothpick method but it didn't work either.
    Then I tried a trick that I use on electronic devices or other items that have some dirt or dust in them - purse your lips really tight and blow hard - this can dislodge the muck and allow a connection. The computer recognised my phone immediately after doing this so I suppose that's what did the trick. Unfortunately this only worked temporarily and I still have connection problems. I can see the phone in My Computer but when I try to open it it shows me a few folders then hangs. Also Kies can't connect either, but then that's not really surprising, is it?
    So am I right in concluding that the problem is a physical one to do with the USB port?

    You are GOD SEND. After literally giving up trying everything, I happened to come across your post and I was pretty sure it wouldn't work but it did. THANKS A TON. So people just push the tongue a little up and it will get detected as a mass storage maybe while cleaning I might have pushed the tongue down.

    Thankyou sooooooooo much!!! Several weeks ago my rooted Nexus 4 started coming up with the same error messages. I reverted to stock fearing I had caused the damage by playing with the voltages. I had no joy and have been unable to do anything about it since.

    I know this isn't a Nexus 4 thread however it certainly worked for me so nice one.
