Um. How would a phone work as a mouse? What do you have in mind? Do
you want to use the up/down/left/right buttons on the phone to move
the PC's mouse pointer? If so, no, I don't think so.

I have heard of a project to make a phone's camera work as an optical
mouse, so you put your phone on the desk & slid it around. It's
clumsy, inaccurate, kills your phone battery & scratches & dirties up
the back of the phone and its camera's lens, though. Can't see why
anyone would want to do it, myself.
