    How can I connect my USB thumb drive to EVO? Want it to transfer files and extra storage. Is there a wire that enable this connection (mini USB and full USB?)

    This cannot done directly. The only way to transfer from a USB stick is with a computer as the "middle man" (both phone and stick plugged into a USB port)

    That'd be pretty cool... kinda like a mini-hd for your phone.

    If someone could figure out how to do that, and also have it be an external charger they'd make some coin from me. :)

    Imagine a 5400mhz external battery charger/500gb mini-harddrive :)

    I had a micro USB to USB converter for my Palm Treo 800w. I would plug a USB audio adapter to it so i would have a 3.5mm headset jack. It also supported a USB drive. I was able to transfer files to and from my drive to my memory card on the 800w. I will look for that cable and see if it works with the EVO. It shuld be in my truck.
    I will try to post a follow up after lunch.
