Still think you need a phone program.

$ apt-cache search "ACM.*phone|phone.*ACM" | less
$ apt-cache search --full <package name from above> | less
when something looks interesting.

It appears that if I wanted to access "phone" features or use the phone as a modem, i would need a phone program, but in this case I want to avoid a phone program. When the phone is in "phone mode" the USB wont work at all.

I was able to get ubuntu to automount the device by pluggin it in until it recognized the tty part mentioned above then going into the phone choices on the menu and turning on the "USB" in the phone again. For whatever reason, ubuntu recognized it as a USB and auto-mounted it as a USB.

I checked on the "mount /dev/ttyACM0 /mnt" suggestion above and although that did not work, it did point me in the right direction by googling that up. On some other sites they mention that "ttyACM0" is used for a serial USB device connected to Linux.

Thanks for all the help. The suggestions on dmesg, lsusb, fdisk and others was stuff I did not know before this adventure. I wish I know exactly why its working now but at least all these new commands helped increase my knowledge and get the phone to a stage where the automated software could take over.

The phone is the LG LOTUS for anyone else reading this.

The menu on the phone was

Home --> Tools --> 4) USB Mode

The USB cable had to be plugged in first and DMESG had to report that /dev/ttyACM0 was available first.
