For as long as we can tell when an external device gets connected. I'm
not familiar with the cable (not a Nokia user) but maybe it supports
the USB hub interface or notifies the computer in some other way so my
comment may we worthless. It would be kind of silly to complain to the
user about a non-working connection when all that is plugged in is the
cable ;)
