Question USB Options: Charge Only?

On GB I had several USB Charge Options, including a Charge Only option. There are only two options that I see on the S3.

Media Device
Camera

Is there a way to add a Charge Only option?

Thx

I could be wrong, but I think it charges under either options.

Ahh, gotcha. Good 'ol IT and their policy to keep USB devices "off". As far as I can tell (VZ version), I haven't seen a charge only option.

I'm looking to enable this option too. It's a little annoying whenever I plug in my S3 into my work PC, and I get that prompt on the phone to install Kies.
