    On the keypad

    Once you type it in the menu should pop right up.

    If your carrier is TMO or AT&T the USB setting can be access *#0808# for Samsung phones only.

    Hi all,
    I spent most of the day trying to figure out why USB Tethering was greyed out. I wanted to transfer photos from my phone to Facebook. The PC is running Windows 10 and I also tried it on an iMac running El capitan. Checked that USB Debugging was on, checked drivers on the PC, used *#0808# which showed the phone was set for MTP + ADB, all looked good. Then I realised I'd been using the cable off my mini jump start. Once I changed to a "proper" USB cable the problem went away. So my advice is, number one, check the cable because it could save you a lot of time. At least, by making sure the cable is good, you can be reasonably confident that you may need to take other measures.

    Hope this helps.

    The solution is to set first the phone as MTP+ADB by typing *#0808# and select from menu and confirm with ok, After that install Samsung Android USB Driver for Windows and then connect the phone to usb. Eventually ennable Developer Mode if it is not and check USB debugging.
    Many thanks, this did the trick for me after months of frustration ! Cheers mate.

    Hello and welcome to Android Central kmghg!

    Code *#0808# is disabled by some carriers on their minority variants. Verizon is one of those.

    All I can suggest is that you uninstall Kies and/or Smart Switch from your PC. Reboot and download and install SAMSUNG_USB_Driver_for_Mobile_ Phones.zip. (You will need to extract the file installer first). Then connect your phone using the OEM Samsung USB cable that came with your phone.See if that helps.

    I came to this thread as I was having same issue as you and going through all the recommendations and using a bit of my own knowledge, I think I've been able to crack it. Go to Settings>About phone and tap on 'build number' 7 times to activate the Developer Options. After this go back to the main settings menu and you'll find the the new 'Developer options' (appears above 'About phone' on my OPO). Find 'select USB configuration' and select MTP to activate it. Hope this helps!

    with the phone plugged into the PC, swipe down from the top of the screen. You should see a little USB symbol. It might say "Charging" Next to it.
    Where are the MTP setting on my Galaxy S5 5.0?-screenshot_2016-10-27-16-22-50-1-.jpg
    Tap that and a screen comes up that says "Use USB for" and you have a choice to use it for:
    Charging
    File Transfer
    Photo Transfer
    Software Installation
    MIDI

    If you choose File Transfer your PC will recognize your phone as a storage device and you can then use file explorer to move your files or pictures as you choose just as if you were using a thumb drive.

    Kevin Stickles, tried that and it doesn't recognize the stupid phone.
    I am using original Samsung cable, have tried many of the solutions in this thread, can't get my laptop and phone to talk. I just got this S5 a couple of months ago, if I'd known it was going to be this much trouble I'd have gotten something else. In fact I'm ready to toss this one and go back to an S4. This is ridiculous.

    Welcome to Android Central! Have you tried different cables? Cables can fail unexpectedly, so try a few others.
