I got an Sony Erricson W980 Phone, and want to Connect it via USB with Ubuntu 12.10.

https://answers.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/yelp/+question/63369 <- does't work anymore, the links are dead.

The Problem is that the Phone indicates a Connection but Ubuntu doesn't regocnize it. It will not be mounted.

im am sorry - mount just needs about 15 minutes - if you have enough time to wait it works out of the box. –  Matthias Jun 1 '13 at 18:26
