I charge my phone via usb cable directly onto my computer sometimes, and every now and then I get a "USB device not recognized" error message. It is hit and miss, and I'm not exactly sure why. Does anyone have the same thing happen to them?

So I guess us 2 are the only ones having this problem... I just tried a XP with latest Samsung driver installed and it doesnt reconize the usb. I guess I will have to go to ATT and have them take a look at it!:-\

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!
