Is there are any possibility to make my Blackberry Pearl as USB Mass Storage Device?

When i plug my phone then i check in terminal withlsusb command, my phone is detected. But i dont know how to make it as USB Mass Storage Device. I want transfer files easily just like common usb flashdisk.

I found package name barry but not as im expected, it just sync my contact and else, but not for transfer file.

You'll need to configure your Blackberry to enable the mass-storage device capability. Note - you can only make the SD card visible to linux.

On your Blackberry go to Options --> Media Card and enable Mass Storage.


If this menu option is not available try Options --> Advanced Options --> Media Card and switch Mass Storage Support to On


Then plug in your Blackberry via USB to Ubuntu. Nautilus (File Manager) should mount the SD card automatically.
