    I have an issue and I can't connect my phone via USB to my computer. I can charge it and everything. I've tried 3 different computers and they all say the same thing:

    USB connected you can not switch USB mode with factory cable

    Can anyone help me with this at all? This is REALLY annoying.

    this is the fist time i've had this problem. I just returned to stock ROM, and i'm trying to unroot. but having this Issue. It's the same cable I rooted with (my LG esteem, metro pcs) and have been using for almost a year via USB. I have never seen this message until today
    pull the status bar down to switch USB mode, and it says "you can not switch USB mode with a factory cable"

    can anyone help I really need to unroot ASAP to return for a warranty issue so I can make calls.
