    is this possible? with my pc at work, it recognizes my phone as a drive so i can just drag/drop.

    when i had my htc desire, the phone allowed me to mount the phone as a drive on my mac so i could drag/drop files... can this be done with the s2?

    Yes, it's pretty easy.

    Settings->Wireless and network->USB utilities->Connect storage to PC

    then (and only then - if you do it before it won't work) connect the USB cable and tap on the Connect USB storage button.

    Job done.

    Sadly yes. It's a bit of a faff but the phone needs to know so it can unmount the SD card and the internal drive from the Android file system.
