Ok so I have tried to do as much research as I could before resorting to this forum post.. I have tried for hours now to connect my phone to kies (2.0), and it will just constantly say "connecting..." no matter how long I leave it connected. I have installed kies onto both my PC and on my Mac, and it does not change either way. I am using the cable that originally came with my phone when I bought it, because I know that gave me issues in the past. I tried to do it with both USB debugging on and off (when it is on it tells me to turn it off) and I have tried to turn off and on allow mock locations and unknown sources. I have no idea what to do now. I have also uninstalled, and restarting many times... Someone please help!!
