    Probably too late, but you need a * before the first #.

    I had the same problem connecting phone to pc. Then I tried connecting it to a macbook and it worked! Just make sure you don't move the macbook or usb wires afterwards because once you lose the connection it takes forever to get it to work again.

So there's plenty of storage overall but it wasn't being used/managed effectively by the phone.

    After much searching on this and other forums without any luck I think I've finally found the solution myself. If you go to the main Settings menu and then Device and click on Storage there is a Format USB Storage option. I did this even though it warns it will erase any files held in that storage area as I was less concerned about that than the fact the storage didn't seem to be being referenced at all by the S2 device. Anyway, once done all applications are now downloading fine from Playstore and are being stored in the USB Storage area.

    I suspect that the problem with accessing the USB Storage may have arisen after I upgraded the Android version on the S2 from Ice Cream Sandwich to Jelly Bean v 4.1.2 and that the reformatting of the USB Storage area has now recreated the right linkages with 4.1.2 - can't be sure but this may be the reason. Anyway, it's fixed now.
    Has anyone tried this yet? I'm about to back up my data and get it done this afternoon
