    Hello,

    Lifting the tongue up-wards(thats when phone screen is facing me) has been helpful.

    Somebody mentioned of a hardware issue. It will be nice to investigate as well.

    Cheers.

    Try this...it worked for me...Except I started getting this all of the sudden and Every single time I would connect to my PC.

    I read this solution on the internet but did not think it would work...but I took 2 minutes and tried it and it worked! give it a try..you only have to lose 2 minutes...

    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!
    This seems to be the problem thank you. well i have this issue my phone does charge fine its just the file transfer i wanna transfer music from my pc to my phone it might get one or 2 tracks if im lucky.

    I didnt have a tooth pick so i tried a lolly stick it was too thick so didn't work very well i had nothing else so i used a knife gently lifted the thing up plugged my phone in and now its transferring music has been for the past 10 minutes so far so good normally it would disconnect after 20 seconds or so its been going alot long now i did that, its so annoying how it charged up fine yet some how wasn't connected for file transfer. too bad i just splashed out on a new wire thought the old wire was faulty but even the new wire doesnt work not a cheap one ether i have it connected to the old wire its still coping files thank you very much!!!

    i tried the toothpick method and it didn't work completely. it made my phone recognise the computer once, although the computer still doesn't recognise the phone and it still says the USB device isn't recognised. i've tried the toothpick a few times, but i'm worried if i do it any more that i'll break the phone. so it didn't work for me.

    Hey, although I didn't believe that was my problem too, because I had the problem before and it had suddenly fixed itself without managing to get any explanation, I tried this now. Because it's pretty long time since I had this problem, I excluded the possibility of having a USB connector problem. But you know: in electronics you can never be so sure. So I tried it in two ways. Firstly I used a very thin cutter razor, and nothing. Honestly, I was afraid not to break the edge of the razor and not be able to take it out. So the second time I used a nail file because it was thicker and gently stuck its tip behind the connector's thong. And pushed a little more. This time I was afraid not to break the connector's tongue. But I worked gently enough. Tried to connect and.... worked

    SO, I CONFIRM that there is a general bug of this USB connector.

    Thanks, dude!!!! I didn't believe it would work since I insisted more. At least, I had no other choice because I had already tried the other software tricks.

    I'm a developer. I have over 6 phones that do this Hit and Miss across 12 different PC's. I can confirm this is a major issue.
    At this point, this should NOT be a problem for the consumers. There is an obvious issue with the current micro USB standards.
    If it's the current micro USB cable standard, or the phone's micro USB port standard, Manufactures need to fix this. Not paying consumers.

    For me, it seemed to be a damaged USB wire/ cable. I tried the toothpick trick, and still had the issue and then tried a different cable and it worked.

    I tried the toothpick trick, but still had the same issue, then tried a new micro-USB cable and that seemed to solve the issue. My transfer speed seemed to increase as well, so if you are having trouble, try a different cable.

    Toothpick trick worked!
    Initially it did not work, but then I switch to a different USB cable and it started recognizing.
    Before the Toothpick trick, it was not getting recognized with both cables!

    Thanks much!

    WORKED FOR ME!! Used a toothpick. I applied only a minuscule amount of pressure to lift the "tongue" barely a fraction of a millimeter. Still, when adjustments with toothpicks and such are necessary, most likely it's time for a new phone. THANK YOU!
