Default [Q] So disappointed with my Verizon Galaxy Note 2...

By far this is the fastest phone I had, coming from a HTC Evo Lte from Sprint. But I'm hoping that HTC comes out with a 5.5" screen so I can go back, I never had any issues transferring all my pictures, videos, music, etc. There's is no plug and play with the note 2. I've downloaded the MTP kit from Microsoft and still nothing works, I really don't want to use the kies air app, I just want to plug and play.... Any suggestions that can make me fall in love with my note 2 again.... This is my first Samsung phone...

I can only use it as a camera not as a media devise ....
I'm Not Afraid Anymore......

You need to use the cable that came with the phone and you need to install the drivers for your phone. Once you get those in order you will be in business.

All I needed was the cable, my PC installed the driver automatically.

I will never understand why people immediately jump to "my NEW phone can't do this" before first finding out if they're doing something incorrectly.

Pool_shark,

Probably because it's a pain point. They are used to doing X and can't. They want X back.

Well it is a standard, and people expect them to work universally. It's almost as bad as proprietary cables. It sucks to buy multiple cables only to have to buy new cables for the next phone.

When I was unlocking the bootloader casual couldn't find my device.
It was time to troubleshoot. So I rebooted the phone to see if my PC could see the phone, it couldn't.
Guess what my next step was in troubleshooting, I switched cables, and boom, it worked.

My previous android devices could all use the same cables, but this one couldn't, yet I still thought the next best thing was to try the cable it came with.

Yeah I make it a point now to use the cable that the phone came with. Same thing happened with my Samsung Galaxy Nexus I couldn't get the phone to connect to the pc until my wife said, "Is that the cable the phone came with? You should use the cable the phone came with." I was thinking, oh hell no, that shouldn't be an issue. So when I did use the cable the effin phone hooked up quick style. So remember guys, listen to your wife. Lol

Go to Samsung's website and download the USB drivers for the Note 2. Oh hey, look at that, I linked it below for you:

http://www.samsung.com/us/support/ow...SCH-I605MSAVZW

Under Manuals/Downloads --> Click Software

After you install the drivers, connect your Note using your USB cable. If your Note doesn't show up on the computer as a removable hard drive, open up your Note with the USB cable still plugged in --> pull down your notifications bar --> select the USB "Connected as an Installer" option --> Check "Media device (MTP) option

Hope that helps.
