Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Have you tried plugging in the phone and seeing if it shows up as a removable device? That would be the best method, from there it's just copying and pasting from PC to phone. If that doesn't work maybe you can transfer the media to the phones memory card if applicable, I'm not sure what the specs are on that model. Is it a Droid? If so an option would be to root the device and then your possibilities are endless.
yeah, it does show up as a removable device once I plug it in on USB mode. However, when I try to copy and paste anything to the memory card it not only doesnt show up on the phone, but any attempt to access the memory card prompts the following message "please insert memory card" or "no memory card present". the card will continue to be unrecognized until I use the phone to reformat it.
From my experience with phones the data has to be put in the proper folders in which the applications read from, so .mp3 files in mp3 apps Music folder, .jpg in DCIM/100CAMERA of photo app folder, and .txt in Documents type folder. They can't be piled all in a single folder unless you have a good photo manager app installed on that phone.
It does not appear to be an Android or other kind of "smart phone," rather just a plain old cell phone with some media capabilities. I hate to sound snarky, but what does the manual say about transferring files to it?
