try dmesg, you'll see lots of errors from it trying to recognise the phone

when you try to connect to the phone, my understanding is it's talking
to a kernel module on the phone. the relevant module was not loaded
afaics. i ran lsmod on the phone, and nothing was returned. i think i
ran depmod, then modprobe ehci_usb (or maybe ehci_usb....) and depmod
again, then plugged it in, and lsusb (on the laptop) revealed it as
being connected (it wasn't previously shown)

i could always see the phone fine while it was booted to nor
