If it is possible I don't know how, but my bet is it is something of those
new fashion things. There is no USB offered: developers mode (which is
networking over usb), I need to check if I disable it it would change

Anyway the question is , because I looked in  tdebase-tdeio-plugins-trinity
and I found nothing regarding MTP:

Description: core I/O slaves for TDE
 This package includes the base tdeioslaves. They include, amongst many
 others, file, http, ftp, smtp, pop and imap.
 It also includes the media tdeioslave, which handles removable devices,
 and which works best with procfs, udev, and udisks2/udisks/pmount. Media
 also extends the functionality of many other tdeioslaves. To use this
 service, please make sure that your user is a member of the plugdev

Another option would be that the phone is incorrectly handled as camera
device and I need to change or add somewhere the vendor and product id, so
that it recognizes it as USB. Not even sure if the phone would support
this - I will try tomorrow with wi-n-do in the office.

So the question is if someone where has experience with MTP in TDE - would
help me rule out this part of the game.
