your information is a bit vague, but anyway ...

I understand that when you plug your phone into a Windows PC, it is automatically shown as a storage device, right? So it announces itself as a "USB Mass Storage Device" to the host computer.

Ubuntu and its kin usually auto-mount a USB storage device under /media when it's plugged in. So you should see your files at /media/<something>, where <something> is either a clear name of your device, or an 8-digit hex number, like 8E13-3CD6 (just an example).

Please have a look and tell if that's okay. Because if not, we'll have to do step-by-step research.
