So my phone, ZTE merit, will still charge when it is plugged into my pc, but it has become seemingly unable to enter usb mode for file transferring etc.. Im beginning to believe this may be why I had trouble rooting, as the device wasnt being recognized? When I plug the device in, instead of making the usual 2-tone beep that indicates a new usb device activated, my computer instead makes a dull 3-tone beep that I have never heard.. but when I unplug it, it makes the usual "usb disconnect" sound... does anyone know what im talking about and what it indicates? I've tried turning on and off the debug mode, powercycling both my pc and my phone, tried a different cord as well as a different compute rwith no success. am I to understand that this phone that is less than 2 months old is already going bad?? I know it is an off brand, discount phone model but really.. so soon?
