To get pictures, videos and other data from your mobile phone to your Linux computer the process depends on which mobile phone you use:

Samsung

I plug in my Samsung S3 Mini via USB. Then I open a console, type

dmesg

and see

[ 5481.312185] usb 2-1.6: new high-speed USB device number 4 using ehci-pci
[ 5481.399118] usb 2-1.6: New USB device found, idVendor=04e8, idProduct=6860
[ 5481.399124] usb 2-1.6: New USB device strings: Mfr=2, Product=3, SerialNumber=4
[ 5481.399128] usb 2-1.6: Product: SAMSUNG_Android
[ 5481.399132] usb 2-1.6: Manufacturer: SAMSUNG
[ 5481.399135] usb 2-1.6: SerialNumber: 300420d4ad65b100
[ 5486.772945] usb 2-1.6: USB disconnect, device number 4
[ 5486.950696] usb 2-1.6: new high-speed USB device number 5 using ehci-pci
[ 5487.037725] usb 2-1.6: New USB device found, idVendor=04e8, idProduct=6860
[ 5487.037731] usb 2-1.6: New USB device strings: Mfr=2, Product=3, SerialNumber=4
[ 5487.037735] usb 2-1.6: Product: SAMSUNG_Android
[ 5487.037738] usb 2-1.6: Manufacturer: SAMSUNG
[ 5487.037742] usb 2-1.6: SerialNumber: 300420d4ad65b100

So the kernel recognized there is something. Ok, let's get all files:

# mkdir s3
# cd s3
# gphoto2 --get-all-files

Nokia

Install gnokii and use the xgnokii GUI.
