USB mode and the PIN window

    I recently activated the PIN screen on my phone. Now whenever I connect my phone to the PC to transfer some files, the PIN screen will take over while the phone is connected. So when I want to leave the mass storage mode, I'm unable to do so, as the USB window is gone. I enter the PIN and find myself on my phone with the SD card unmounted. The only thing I can do then is to restart the phone, which is quite annoying. I guess this is not working as intended, so what did I do wrong?

    Maybe you misunderstood my problem. I want it to switch to mass storage mode. That works without a problem. But then there usually is the orange Android with the button to switch back to phone mode on the screen, right?
    Well, since I activated the PIN screen, this PIN screen takes over after activating storage mode. So all I can do is enter the PIN and then I am on my home screen while still in storage mode and I have no idea how to get the phone back to phone mode from there without restarting the whole phone.

    Which phone is it? Haggistech is correct, if the orange Android screen disappears, you should be able to pull down the notification bar and there will be an option to revert back to phone mode?

    Sorry for the late reply. Didn't see that someone replied because I never get email notifications. >.<
    It's a Sharp SH-12C. When the orange Android screen disappears the notification bar disappears too. The Android version is 2.3.3.
