Some will show up as USB mass storage (or at least let you access an
attached sd card by that method). I've got a samsung which is locked
down for that (and I don't want to have to root it), in which case you
have to use MTP. For access in KDE I've got kio_mtp installed.
simple-mtpfs works for me if I need command line access. The phone
needs to be unlocked while accessing it.
Just be aware that MTP doesn't give you a "real" filesystem, e.g. IIRC
there's no seeking and files cannot be modified in place or even directly
overwritten, just read, written and deleted. simple_mtpfs does some caching
to try to disguise this but it's useful to know.
