    I'm trying to mount to my macbook, and it's not working. When I plug my Incredible in via USB, it just starts charging. Nothing appears on the phone screen, no notifications or new icons in the top bar or anything. Nothing loads on my computer either. Any idea of how I can get this to work?

    Didn't you hear? Jobs sent out a OTA update to all Macbooks which block all Android phones ;)

    No, but really I would not doubt this for a second. That Jobs is turning into a crazy nut.

    Tried that, and it didn't work. It's still just charging. I have the "ask me about connection type when I connect to a PC" checked, so shouldn't there be a notification that pops up when I plug in the USB? It's like my phone isn't even recognizing it's hooked to a computer.

    It shouldn't, but I've never had a smartphone before, so I don't know if this is different.

    Nevermind. I powered it off, and when I turned it back on, it finally started working. I could have sworn I saved a couple images from my browser, but I don't see them anywhere now that I'm looking at the files on my comp. No big deal. Thanks for your help.
