Default [Q] PC wont see phone when plugged into USB but it charges still.

Just rooted and flashed the omni rom (love it btw) I plugged my phone up to my laptop and nothing, then my PC and nothing again. The phone charges off both though.

Are you sure the cable is good? I've had experiences with some cables that only charged the phone and couldn't transfer data.

Default I have similar

Almost like the USB port gets a little loose with gravity. If I rest the phone and the cable on the desk, I can't maintain the USB connection. If I put the phone near the edge, and let the cable hang over, it puts just enough torque for the data connection to work.

Happens no matter what cables I use.

I've thought about asking HTC, but I have a feeling it means it goes in for repairs.
