I haven't read one positive thing about Sammy's phones in a long time. I would encourage anyone I know to stay away! Did anyone see their keynote at CES? That was enough to throw up a huge red flag. As far as Moto's locked bootloaders go it looks like we have a good workaround for now. I am still waiting for HTC to bring the heat with some dual core goodness.

just got my phone to mount, this is what i did:
*this phone was not rooted*
with these settings,
-usb debugging disabled
-unknown sources (non market app install) allowed
-[i think] in usb settings, under the mount options or whatever the third
option is, i had "ask on connection" enabled
went to mount the phone, selected "select to copy files to/from pc" and selected mount two or three times without it mounting, turned on usb debugging and it mounted itself.
hope this works for you
Here is my TEMPORARY fix for the issue….
Ok I have SUCCESSFULLY and REPEATEDLY achieved mounting of the SD Card over 12 times in a row without failure by following the below procedure.
Look in About This Mac / More Info / System Profiler / USB and see the node point of your phone’s SD Card. Mine is /dev/disk1
Have a terminal window open with the following command ready to execute:
gpt show /dev/disk1Connect the Phone
In the Notifications screen, repeatedly, about five times do:
1. USB Connection -> MOUNT
2. Turn Off USB Storage -> TURN OFF
Repeat x 5 quickly
At some point when the Mac is confused as to what the hey is going on (after about the fifth time of mounting and un-mounting the card, Mount it ONE MORE TIME and immediately EXECUTE the command in the terminal window.
You should see your Memory card appear with Read/Write access.I do not understand why this works, but it does. Something about probing the USB Interface.
Any one of you Mac pros want to tell me what is going on here and why this works? So far this is the ONLY method that I have been able to reproduce OVER and OVER again successfully.
This has made me SO mad.Thanks,

I can't mount anymore, thats for sure. I took a 3 minute video of my daughter crawling to send to my relative via facebook and I can't transfer it to my computer and the file is "too large" to send even over Wifi.
Ridiculous. I was a huge booster of this phone up until about 3 hours ago when I went looking for help and all I see is one person after another crapping on it.
I'll call verizon customer service tomorrow, see if I can get my phone rolled back or exchanged for another device that actually works.
hell, I don't even understand these instructions and I've seen variations of them everywhere.
