    Tried that, no luck, also tried unplug reboot phone reattach no luck. Tried turning both off for a bit after unplugging then turn on the PC let it do it's thing then turn on the phone let it do it's thing and then hooking them up...no go either. Every thing was fine last night when I messed up now...not so fine.

    Update, managed to get it working again after going into settings>Accounts,sync>Factory Data reset. which of course reset all factory settings and wiped out my data, but I didn't have much on it anyhow...then I had to connect it to my PC and remove the Android drivers and un connect then reboot the PC and the phone<phone by removing the battery till pc was done> and then reconnecting all together again...finally it works. I went to Metropcs and had them import all my contacts from my old phone and vioula I am back in business...now if I only knew what the heck I was doing I might be dangerous...

    Not sure what the problem is called, but something like this happened to an MP3 I had.

    I think its leaving it plugged into a powered down computer that cause some sort of problem...
