    Just curious if anyone has tried it. I was about to order an OTG cable with the external power connection, and I've read online that OTG support is a mixed bag for Android devices. I tried on an old tablet once and it didn't work. I seem to have lost that cable, so Im fixing to buy a replacement, but if someone already knows that it doesn't work on this phone, then I won't bother.

    Yep, I figure that between the excellent battery, and the overall toughness of the phone, most of us are probably going to have this phone for a while, so we might as well try to keep communication open and share the knowledge.

    I tried with Kingston 2gb usb stick and there are two options:
    Using as internal data storage or removable data storage, but in both cases it must be formatted. How can I copy files from usb to the phone if the usb must be formatted before using...
    Probably the problem is with my Kingston usb, should try with another one...

    It is most likely the USB. It might need ot to be FAT 32 format and maybe you are using NTFS. This could be in reverse. I can't remember the format OTG needs (if it even does need a specific format)
