It would not have worked with the original ozerocdoff package because
your device isn't listed in the hso.udev file - it is a different vendor
ID. But anyway, you managed to make it work without this package, so
this package isn't useful for you.

No, not mounted / unmounted - I meant with the dongle inserted to the
USB port or not inserted.

I suppose, the zero cd wasn't a problem in the first place but the wrong
phone number which you corrected now.
