Thanks for the precision, I was not aware of that because I don't use this app.

comment Problem copying files from PC to Galaxy S3 (slow or frozen)
And by the way I didn't mod down you answer. It is a valid alternative but just not suitable for what I want to achieve.

comment Problem copying files from PC to Galaxy S3 (slow or frozen)
Thanks for your comment. I use Dropbox myself as well but the issue I am trying to solve is the slow copy over USB. I would not be able to transfer 20+ Gb of data over the free Dropbox account anyway.

comment Problem copying files from PC to Galaxy S3 (slow or frozen)
But your different proposals seem to be a great alternative for the cases where a user would like to copy other types of files. And I think my question was more about using the USB port to copy files in general, MediaMonkey was more an example of what I was experiencing. So you could add your comments as an answer and I will accept it if nothing better comes up in a few weeks.

comment Problem copying files from PC to Galaxy S3 (slow or frozen)
@Izzy Good point but I don't think that MediaMonkey would then recognize the device as the GS3. For instance, another option I considered was to export my music on an micro SD card and then to copy from card to phone internal memory. However this was resulting in playlists and cover images not being supported on the GS3. I didn't find a way to make the app export GS3 format on a generic drive letter.

@Izzy I thought about using a wireless transfer method but MediaMonkey detects the device connected to USB and syncs the songs and playlists in the right format for the GS3. If I just copy files I'm not able to keep the playlists.

@geffchang I'm copying to the phone internal memory so I cannot use mass storage.

comment Getting pictures off of old deactivated phone
And to add to my answer I didn't understand what you meant by an "unnamed file". Pictures taken with an Android phone should be named similarly to any digital camera and you should be able to copy them over USB.

comment How do I force USB debugging?
I have been using Android SDK on Ubuntu a lot and there was no driver but a rule needed to be added in /etc/udev/rules.d like explained in developer.android.com/tools/device.html. However according to the same page Mac OS should work out-of-the-box.

comment recover a phone number I didn't save
Try it now anyway because I don't think there is a limit on the time Android keeps the last state of an application. It will loose it only if the OS needs the memory at some point or if you reboot obviously.
