I haven't gotten it to work past the detection stage, not sure if the
cellphone is locked or what. But, Bitpim looks promising! I have an LG
phone from Verizon, and there is a setting for data listing serial or
USB in the phone setup. I bought both cables, the serial one was a dud,
and the USB one makes a nice entry in lsusb. It's there and Bitpim finds
it after some nudging. I see a connect, but it's not getting past
"something mysterious to me" to actually grab cellphone data to my
computer. If it's locked in some fashion, I have no clue.
Also, X is damn picky about hot plugging it. If my phone is on, and the
X session is running, it locks up X. If I turn the machine off, reboot
with the cellphone on and connected, X proceeds as usual. I thought the
whole thing about USB was to be able to just plug stuff in, but I'm
wrong about that point. If anyone has a clue as to real connect
procedure regarding USB devices, please point me to it. Ric
