    I'm new to the forum and have a question. I have a Galaxy S III and also an Asus TF300T transformer tablet.

    How do I get the tablet to recognise the phone and vice versa, when I connect the two through the USB? My thinking here is to have a way to transfer files when no WIFI available. Is there a better way for me to do this?

    Thanks in advance. Great forum.

    Yes, bluetooth. I use it all the time between my phone and tablet.

    ^^ What Biker said. Transfer files through Bluetooth from device to device. USB won't work since there aren't any drivers installed on either device to recognize eachother. However, that could be changed if either has USB OTG mode support enabled on ROM/Kernel.

    I have both devices too :)

    Sounds silly, but how about swap a micro-sd card between the two?
