I'm not, but I am using an android phone running Ice Cream Sandwich, and it will not connect. It's trying to use MTP. If your phone is using MTP, you might just be SOL.

For phones/tablets using MTP, especially Android devices, jmtpfs may be worth a shot (even for WP, possibly?). You'll need to download it from here: http://research.jacquette.com/jmtpfs-ex ... and-linux/. I've not used it, but looks like they don't have a package so you'll have to read the included documents to see how to install it. Note that MTP is what you want actually, as that allows you to transfer files without having to turn of your phone first :|

After installing, run the following to show a list of attached MTP devices:
Code: Select all
jmtpfs -l

To mount the first device (normally you'd only have one), you first need to create a directory in your own home directory where you'll mount the device (it needs to be a directory you can read/write, so not in /mnt or /media but in your home directory). Let's assume you create "mydevice". Then run the following to mount your device:
Code: Select all
jmtpfs ~/mydevice

To unmount it run:
Code: Select all
fusermount -u ~/mydevice

So yes, you need to do this from the command prompt. See Linux Format #165, page 106-107, which goes into more detail on how to write custom udev rules to automount your device so you don't need to run the above commands.
