I'm definitely NOT alone in being VERY disappointed that the charge only mode is no longer available.
I've seen posts on other sites from people who at their office are not allowed to have devices connected to their computers, which is perfectly reasonable from an employers stand point. Now that charge only is missing they may face disciplinary action if they connect their phone.
I even saw one post where someone was so upset they were considering going to the dark side of Apple. For me my Droid would have to start eating my pants every time I put it on my hip before I'd consider an I-phone.
Can there possibly be a viable reason for removing the charge only feature?
