I found this a little tricky at first too on my STRAIGHTTALK phone. This is what I do now. Make sure phone is powered on, plug the phone into the mini jack to computer, and then unlock it. When it goes to unlock, it brings up a notification that you can't have bluetooth and usb connections at the same time and then goes to a "connection" or "connected" screen that won't let you do ANYTHING on the phone except watch a circular icon that reminds me of the duracell battery (Black screen with bronze circle).
Everything you do on it has to be done from the computer. Its possible you need to update drivers/settings on your computer itself, but I never had to.
I have a 2gig microSD card, which I believe is all the computer interacts with. If you don't have a microSD card (upto 16gig as I recall, but not the fancy new HD variety), it may not work. I don't know that for sure though.
