    Hi guys,
    My Ativ S has developed a fault (I think). I can charge the phone, but the battery icon at the top of the screen doesn't indicate that it is actually charging. Also, when connecting the phone to a pc, it does not recognise the thing.
    So...I can charge, but not transfer data by the looks of it.

    Any ideas as to what's up on this thing?

    thnx.

    Is it the stock cable? I'd swap the cable out first.
    Cheap USB cables often won't do data, only charging. Even then, it's frequently a trickle.

    If a verified good cable isn't working, it may be a fault in the USB connection.

    Have you installed any 3rd party Battery Status Apps? If so uninstall them and see if it fixes it.

    Yeah since this before with other devices where if its a cheap cable and not a true OEM cable or the actual manufacture cable from Samsung where cable will charge the phone but the PC will not see it. Like they have some suggested try another cable if its something you got off Ebay make sure it's a OEM or from the Samsung. You should be able to get another one from them you might have to pay more but at least you should not have any issues with it.
