I think it's relevant to mention that I also set up Exchange ActiveSync (for work) and received a very thorough warning notice about the security controls that will be implemented ... and I accepted that.
So I'm wondering if there's something in my company's ActiveSync settings that can lock down USB storage?
I did remove that ActiveSync account but the options remain grey-ed out.
I also have tried several re-boot cycles of the phone, I've tried the Developer Options / USB Debugging trick that I saw posted here, no luck. Still cannot connect to PC via USB for mass storage.
Software version - (4.0.4). Not rooted, just got it new from Boost today.
Thanks in advance.
try turning the phone off and then back on let the SD card mount and everything else to load up. go to settings then to pc connection, it should have 2 sections,
1 showing default connection type
2 showing ask me,"ask me about usb connection type whenever i connect my phone to a pc"
leave default connection as charge only and "check" ask me
it should work right then
