No auto-mount for USB-Device

I would like to mount my mobile phone automatically.
My First try was an udev-rule like:

KERNEL=="ttyUSB[0-6]*", SYSFS{idVendor}=="10ab", SYSFS{idProduct}=="10c5", NAME="mobile", MODE="666", GROUP="uucp", USER="toni", RUN+="/usr/bin/scmxx -d /dev/mobile --set-time", ACTION=="add"
This works well. Time on phone is synced with plugging in the data cable.
It creates the phone as /dev/mobile.

In SuSE 9.3 i solved the problem with subfs. But it has gone with 10.0
How to automatically mount the Mobile's flexmem with SuSE 10.1?
Mount by Hand with "mount /media/mobile" is working.

/dev/mobile          /media/mobile        siefs      rw,auto,exec,user,sync,iocharset=utf8,mode=660 0 0
/misc   /etc/auto.misc
mobile          -fstype=siefs,sync,noatime,nodev,umask=000     :/dev/mobile

Can I suggest that you look at the pain I've just had:

Maybe not exactly what you need but I think the answer lies in autofs.
