Connecting a samsung galaxy siii to freebsd

I am connecting a samsung smartphone (galaxy s3) to a freebsd machine. It does not automatically mount. When plugging this machine in, the following message appears:

Code:
ugen 7.2: <SAMSUNG> at usbus7

When disconnecting, the following message appears:

Code:
ugen 7.2: <SAMSUNG> at usbus7 (disconnected)

What does this tell me about how to mount this smartphone?

Can/Do you set it to mass storage mode on the phone before attaching the cable? (I do not have one, but mine has several USB options and does not automatically become a pen drive.

Unfortunately not. When plugging in the device, the screen shows the message:

Code:
Connected as a media device (touch for other USB options)

and when pressing that the following two options appear:

Code:
Media device (MTP) [switched on by default]
Camera (PTP) [switched off by default]

The former option mentions a link to Android.com, which contains some instructions on how to connect to a Mac or Windows computer, but not Linux or FreeBSD.

So, no mount, but is there a new raw device in /dev ?

There is. The following new line appears:

Code:
lrwxr-xr-x  1 root  wheel            9 Oct 20 08:06 ugen7.2 -> usb/7.2.0

List the target (-L). Can you manually mount it?

With listing the target you mean something like the following?:

Code:
ls -L ugen7.2

Mounting is something as follows?:

Code:
# mount -t msdosfs /dev/ugen7.2 /mnt
mount_msdosfs: /dev/ugen7.2: Block device required

Perhaps a different syntax?
