What "mobile" questions are suitable for superuser.com?

If I ask how to configure a certain handset model so that the alarm clock rings in vibrate mode, then it seems to me this is 100% mobile and not computer related.

If I ask how to setup email-fetching from my company server for a certain handset, this does seems computer related.

Where is the limit, what mobile questions, if at all, should be asked in superuser.com?

Mobile phone questions are generally frowned upon unless you are asking how to perform some actions with them along with a computer. For example: asking how to download images from a phone onto a pc.

On the other hand, smart phones like Blackberries, iPhones, Windows Mobile devices, those are generally much more accepted because they can fit into the definition of a consumer computer much more easily.
