This worked for me


1. Unplug the USB cable

2. On the cell phone, dial the following number: *#7284# Once the last # is hit, the PhoneUtil application is launched. Choose USB -> Modem and then USB -> PDA mode. The good mode should be PDA. Even if the mode is PDA, switch to Modem and then back to PDA.

3. Plug the USB cable.

Note:

* Repair USB connection for any Samsung Android phone

Reference: search youtube for "Samsung kies wont connect my samsung galaxy s!? (fix!)"

@teenvista, Thanks a lot! That worked. Samsung should be ashamed of themselves for making their users go through such obscure steps to get one of their flagship phones working with their own software.
