    Question mount cellphone

    Hello! I'm kinda new here to the forum (and to the wonderful world of linux and other unix-like systems).

    I have an old Motorola V3 Razor cellphone and i was trying to mount it on my Ubuntu OS. So i plugged in my phone (through the USB port) and did the following

    $ lsusb | grep Motorola
    Bus 003 Device 002: ID 22b8:4902 Motorola PCS Triplet GSM Phone (AT)

    $ mount /dev/bus/usb/003/002 /mnt/usb/
    mount: /dev/bus/usb/003/002 is not a block device

    I put in bold text the error I got. What i remember from the little experience that i have is that block devices are the ones that can be turned into a file system (but i'm probably wrong :P). Can anybody help me with this?

    Hello and Welcome.
    The only thing I can come up with is that you might want to find and install moto4lin in your package manager and see if that helps. This is an old link but your phone is old also. It may still work.

    I'd rather be lost at the lake than found at home.
