    Assuming that you have Windows on the laptop, click on Start, My Computer. Right click on the icon for the phone, click eject.

    I have always thought that Windows xp and above always safely removes devices when you unplug them, I have never had a problem with corrupted data or devices that I have pulled the plug on.

    I pull the plug all the time with USB sticks and phones, external HDD's

    I think it's the mtp mode, if you turn on usb debugging on your phone you'll get the eject button.

    As long as you don't pull it out while its reading /writing you will be fine.
