    Just use an USB cable to connect it to a computer.

    There is nothing like a mass storage mode on Lumia phones or in windows phones. Just connect your phone through a USB cable and you can see files and transfer files between your phone and laptop. No mass storage mode also save you from viruses from your laptop.

    Just wanted to correct a misconception here. There are no viruses that can be transmitted from Windows Phone to Computer (and the other way around). In fact there are no Windows Phone viruses.

    Enabling any kind of storage mode via USB will not allow anyone to inspect the disk structure of the phone's storage - that's locked off and cannot be modified. If you hve deleted content from your phone, it has gone. There may be a way of using data forensic methods to get at the data, but it would be prohibitively expensive (and most probably contrary to Microsoft's terms of use).

    Unless you've copied data from the phone, it's gone for good I'm afraid.

    This is very disappointing. Prior to my HTC Arrive on windows phone 7 and my current HTC 8XT on windows phone 8 and now 8.1 I used a HTC Snap and HTC Touch Pro II on windows phone 6 and 6.5. Both of those version 6 phones worked great with the Pioneer car stereo in my truck, I could listen to music and podcasts from phone by running everything from the car stereo and it kept the phone charged at the same time. Worked great.
    My 8XT will not even charge through the stereo and the USB says not available.
    Is there a chance that this function will be brought back??

    You've obviously never tried it. Your comment is of no practical use.
