Instinct phone hooked to USB cable to PC

When I hook my Instinct to my PC the phone quits working. Meaning I can't take or make calls. The phone feature disables itself. Is this just what it does? I guess I am used to my TREO doing both. Also does the battery charge when hooked to the PC?

The answer is yes and no. Voice calls are disabled while hooked up to your computer, and no the phone does not charge while connected, either.

I run Linux, and before (the update?) when i plugged it in, it showed up as mass storage. Now it goes into computer mode for a few seconds, then goes back to normal mode. But, with the 'Speech to Action' trick above, I can get storage mode again, plus the phone works. Kind of strange, but useful.
