    But My Phone Can’t Connect To PC. All It Does Was Charge. Can You Help Me?

    • Mahesh Makvana

      Once you’ve connected your device to your PC, just pull-down the Notification bar and change the Connection mode. It’ll then not just charge your device, but show it as a true device connected to your PC.

      Hope it helps!
