I'm planning to create an application for mobile phone, now my problem is that I've never done this before and I don't know the filing or the root files of a mobile device but I use to hear that it also has a 'c:\' drive which is good for this application I'm planning but the problem is that I don't know if a file named etc exist on a mobile phone or not, the application that I'm planning will be the add or it will come with my program for windows pc and I'm trying to enable the feature of controlling the web access which will limit or block certain websites from being accessed by the device, in windows pc I used that file for controlling so was thinking of using it too on mobile device if it do have the file c:....\etc\host and also how can I explore these file on my computer let say I connect a phone with a cable which program should I have and if the file exist does all the smartphones have it and is it located the same root from symbian, android, blackberry, etc? Thank you.

Similiar to linux, an Andoid will mount a filesystem to / (and others) to access the files within. C:\ is a DOS/Windows invention. So to etc/hosts will usually be found at /etc/hosts.
