    I'm using the same usb cable as with my droid x. the phone charges via usb, but there is not mass storage.

    when i swipe the status bar down, there is nothing there about usb connections.

    is there somewere in settings i can set this?

    You need a sim card. The phones internal memory cannot beaccessed as mass storage.

    don't know what a sim card has to do with it..

    anyway, i got it working.. the cable i useded with my droid x (from another deivce) will not work with my droid 4. i went and got the OEM cable and all is well.

    either the cable is not standard or my old cable is caput.

    i can access my SD card just fine..

    now i have noticed that when plugged in to the usb port, i can not run my wonder droidforums.net app.. untill i pull out the cable.. and then the icon is messed up untill i roboot my phone.

    this app is not installed to the sd card to my knowledge.

    i wish i could provide a screenshot of the phone.. it look s odd.. i have 3 icons that now have a gear on them.
