    Its interestingly weird that if we search for usb using Cortana you find a settings page in the phone section of search.....
    But there is no settings option named usb in settings that works the same way as the previous one did!

    Anybody,who knows what's happening here?

    Wonder if that is the lower power notification, what to do when plugged into computer, settings, no one is talking about but was previewed.



    Lol, just tried it. That is it... Hahahaha...
    Why I that hidden?

    Why aren't the settings still not in alphabetical order?!?!?!

    Great find, I heard about this setting in 8.1 rumors and was wondering why it was not included in 8.1 DP.

    Does that mean the top option now actually allows USB netsetters to be connected to phone?

    No need to use Cortana. Using Bing Search (Cortana disabled) search for USB settings and voil. :D

    Great find!

    This feature was removed/hidden in later builds. I had it on that leaked developer device, but in the official review build it was gone.

    I have no idea. 8.1 has so many little bugs and inconsistencies... I can't play with it now...

    The thing is USB settings is currently hidden in the dev preview. The USB settings will be shown under settings app when the Lumia cyan update is released. As for now Cortana can access core settings of the phone so you can see USB option available. Otg support is still not available with WP 8.1. Enabling uab settings and cheking reminder when phone is connected to a slow charger will have no effect.

    So does anyone have any hard info on what "Ask me before using USB data connection" is referring to?

    My uninformed guess is that if you enable this setting, then plug your phone into a USB port on a computer, the OS will ask if you want to make the phone visible to the computer for transferring files, etc. as it does by default now. If you say no, then it only uses the USB connection for charging and that's it.

    Data connection if it says then I think it is referring to USB tethering. Don't worry you cant use that option anyway until the official version on WP 8.1 is released.

    I was hoping that changing the first setting would make the phone act as a mass storage device (thumb drive). Unfortunately, it does not.

    The device driver is still MTP (media transfer protocol), which limits functionality.
    - Cannot run portable x86/x64 apps from device storage.
    - Not recommended to edit files (.xls, .doc) stored on device.

    Would be fantastic if this menu could enable android-like functionality. Might be a hardware restriction, though.

    I guess some hidden settings (if more are present) will be available with firmware update and only is the firmware support that feature.

    A lot of people seem to be assuming this is what the option means, but where's the evidence to support that? The most popular UserVoice suggestion for this feature (I think) only has 1672 votes and is NOT marked as completed:

    Usb tethering – Feature Suggestions for Windows Phone

    Has there been any official mention of this feature being implemented, or anyone discovering anything more concrete than this one option that could very easily mean something else?

    Well, it can be mean anything, for example, future phones, allowing windows 8 to manipulare phone data (remote messagin, getting the notifications on the PC, etC).

    We can only speculate.

    This USB setting has always been visible in the settings on the emulator in the 8.1 developer SDK
