I have read many other forums regarding this, but most of them are international s2's... Basically I have tried everything to get my phone to connect to kies... After recently chatting with a samsung person it seems there is an issue with the last update taking away the USB options to choose anything besides "mass storage" when you plug the phone in. My kies has been saying not a recognizable device (NO, my phone is not rooted or anything) and would not download any new drivers... I uninstalled and reinstalled kies and now kies is not even showing that it is trying to connect to anything! HELP!!! Ohh and I also am using a Macbook pro... I have a PC too but it won't work on that computer either... - Also taking out the microSD and Sim didn't work Thanks in advance!
