I think the mass storage/internet connection is the problem. I've had mine in internet connection mode each time. I will retry this with the connection in mass storage mode next time ('course I'm working both my jobs today and will get home tonight around11:30 just exhausted so it probably won't be today).
Oh, so why should out be in ms instead of internet mode? When in im, my phone displays the debug symbol so that's why I was using internet mode. When I'm in ms mode I don't get the debug symbol.
