Using that information I solved it, find enclosed a solution for a
future reference:

I reset /etc/hal/fdi/policy/preferences.fdi to its default contents.

I create a file /etc/udev/rules.d/10-local.rules containing this line:

KERNEL=="sd?1", ATTRS{interface}=="Sony Ericsson Memory Stick", SYMLINK+="phone"

This way whichever node gets assigned (sda1, sde1, sdf1) a symlink
called /dev/phone is created. So now I can add a line to /etc/fstab
like this:

/dev/phone      /media/phone    vfat    user,noauto,rw,noexec,nosuid,nodev,sync,noatime,quiet,shortname=mixed,uid=1000,gid=1000,umask=077,iocharset=utf8       0 0

The mountpoint /media/phone needs to be created manually.

Now whenever I plug the mobile phone, it gets mounted to /media/phone
as I needed.

Thanks for such useful info.

Cordially, Ismael
