I do have the same issue with my mobile Sony Ericsson K750i - it should be
detected as an usbstick, but it doesn't show up in ///:computer
lshal shows my device perfectly and I can manually mount the device.

If I enter the relevant line manually in /etc/fstab and save the file the device
will show up in ///:computer

I unplug the device, connect it again and the whole procedure starts again
(adding manually the line in /etc/fstab, save, etc ...)

With the larger sister mobile phone Sony Ericsson W800i it works perfectly fine

FC4 AMD64 distro, kernel-2.6.14-1.1656_FC4, hal-0.5.2-2.fc4.1

I don't know if it is the same issue but I cannot keep hald running.  At this
point, I cannot even get it to start.

I just found this and I will have to check on two other computers that have had
USB issues.  Time to learn about hal.

This report targets the FC3 or FC4 products, which have now been EOL'd.

Could you please check that it still applies to a current Fedora release, and
either update the target product or close it ?

It works for me now perfectly fine with FC6

Fedora Core 4 is no longer maintained.

Setting status to "INSUFFICIENT_DATA". If you can reproduce this bug in the
current Fedora release, please reopen this bug and assign it to the
corresponding Fedora version.
