    Because linux is not windows, there are some devices that just wont work with linux without some tweaking.
    I am not sure on sony ericsons but I know I need xmoto to get my motorolla razr to work.

    File transfer mode usually need you to install some specific vendor software
    (PC Suite or Media Sync) which generally is only available for a windows
    environment.

    What are your goals with the phone?

    in mass storage phone, no other functionality of phone will be available where as in file transfermode, phone is fully functional. What I need is to sync the phone like an ipod with linux.

    moreover dmesg command gave me the following output.

    usb 7-4: new high speed USB device using ehci_hcd and address 4
    usb 7-4: configuration #1 chosen from 1 choice
    usb 7-4: New USB device found, idVendor=0fce, idProduct=0109
    usb 7-4: New USB device strings: Mfr=1, Product=2, SerialNumber=3
    usb 7-4: Product: C510
    usb 7-4: Manufacturer: Sony Ericsson
    usb 7-4: SerialNumber: 3540080302948180

    still I can't see any mounted devices.

    I use wammu to manage my phone contacts. Take a look of the capabilities
    available for your phone:

    Just keep in mind the chance your phone wont work here, its not fault of linux if it doesnt work as most hardware is geared to windows.

    2nd one in the list is my phone... now, is there any way to mount it manually?

    output of cat /proc/partitions remains the same before and after connecting the phone..

    I guess you can only mount it as storage device and it should be auto
    detected by your system as soon as you plug it.

    It should be auto-mounted under /media

    Check the phone connection is selected in the right mode (usb mass storage
    and not file transfer mode).

    the mode selected is media transfer... usb mass storage mode is working... no issues... media transfer mode is the problem... in usb mass storage mode, phone will be in switched off condition...can't recieve any calls... but in media transfer mode i can make calls while transferring files.. that is the difference... It would be great if media transfer mode works in Linux also...

    Media transfer will need you to install a special program to manage the
    phone (I told you "wammu").

    Media transfer in cell phones usually need a windows based computer (or a
    windows virtual machine) so you can install the manufacturer program to
    manage this kind of service and this program is, regrettably, only
    available for a windows environment.

    It's a pity but it is so :-(
