Part of the memory of these phones can be viewed and written to by using them as a standard usb drive - plug it in and do as with any usb disk.
Programs for accessing sms and phonebook and so on are:
wammu - I use this via bluetooth
similar is "gammu" - but I never used it

The Gnome desktop comes with programs for file transfer and sending sms via bluetooth - as does KDE.

I could not convince it to work via the usb-cable (not sure if I miss some important knowledge or if it just is not working this way)
I only used wammu via bluetooth so far.

My Sony Ericsson W910i works as a USB Mass Storage device. When you plug the USB cable in and connect the phone, you have to select "Mass storage" mode on the phone for it to show up as a normal drive (there is the option on the screen to do this), which can be mounted like any other disk (/dev/sda1 or whatever).

There's no generic software for transferring media to phones because they all use proprietary protocols to connect to the PC. Getting them working under Windows requires the installation of numerous drivers, none (or very few) of which have been reverse engineered to work in Linux.

Fortunately, my phone came with a M2 USB adaptor, thus anything I want to transfer can be moved to the card as though it were a memory stick.
