Capturing packets from Nokia E5 connected through USB


IS there a way to capture 3G packets when connecting to the internet using Nokia E5. I was able to connect using HTC as the interface appeared normally, but for E5 the interface isn't seen.

Could it be related to HTC being android which is based on a linux kernal? while Nokia E5 isn't?
