I'd like to transfer files (photos and audio mainly) from my phone, to my Ubuntu PC. Unfortunately upon plugging it in (through Micro USB) nothing is automatically mounted. If I insert a memory card into the phone, then that is automatically mounted.
There is software I can run on Windows XP that allows me to transfer files (although it does not make the phone show up as a volume in Windows Explorer).
The phone is a 3 Skypephone S2 (manufactured by Amoi). Everything I find on the internet suggests it should have a mass storage mode. When connnecting the phone to the computer a "PC Suite" mode can be enabled, however this does not seem to make a difference.
I tried to install the Windows Software through Wine, however this didn't work. (Probably unsurprising that Wine doesn't help with hardware related problems.)
I looked at this page but was unable to get "1614:0407", although I doubt that it would have helped if I had been able to.
udisks --mount /dev/sr2 gives me a 'CD' with some Windows driver files. If I run
sudo usb_modeswitch --default-vendor 0x1614 --default-product 0x1000 then this goes 'CD' away, but I do not get access to the phone's memory.
Below are the new entries in dmesg when the phone is connected. Entering PC Suite mode does not cause any more messages.

When plugging in, I get the following extra entries in
