The Mass Storage Mode is ON by default and this still works. I don't know why mine is working without doing anything, but thought I would mention for others. I'm on a Cingy Pearl.
I'm going to add songs tonight but just wondered if there was anything I'm missing here. Or is there functionality that I'm oblivious to?
Mass storage mode can be on all the time and there is no problem. Its when you hook up your Pearl to your comp that you will be able to use the Pearl as a jump drive but in return you wont be able to accsee the media through the Pearl while it is connected. So if you added a new pic and wanted to make that your background you would have to unhook the Pearl from the comp and then do it. With mass storage you could leave it pluged in and still change the pic.
