I just got a White HTC MyTouch 3G, and after a few hours it auto-updated itself to Android Version 2.2.1 (Kernel version 184.108.40.206-27237-gbe746fb android-build@apa26 #1 ) I bought it as an unlocked phone from newegg.com. I don't have a data plan, I'm using it with a T-Mobile prepay card, and using my house wifi network for data. That works ok, although even with a solid signal, the wifi speed varies a lot (from 993 kbps down to 85 kbps). I took some photos, and recorded some GPS tracks, and wanted to download the data to my PC. Question: I found some instructions online for reading the microSD card from a PC. Here is the first step: "1 Connect the phone to the computer using the USB cable. A notification icon appears in the status bar." ...but on my phone, that never happens. Also, my computer USB port has a light which turns on when a USB device is connected, and the light never goes on. I tried two different computers, no luck. The USB charging cord that came with the phone is white, about 5' long, has a standard USB Type A plug on one end, and the HTC proprietary miniUSB/phone plug on the other. The cord is labelled 73H00316-00M if that matters. The USB cord does work for actually charging the battery, from a computer or the provided USB charger wall-wart plug. Is it possible the provided cord is for charging only, and the USB data pins are not connected? I could try another cable, but of course the phone connector is non-standard so this is the only matching cable I have. So far, my workaround is to physically remove the uSD card and put in my PC card reader. Of course, that works, but I'd prefer to just connect via USB cable if possible.
