On my Android-based phone, a HTC Hero on the Sprint network, once you are 
connected via USB, you have to use the phone to "enable USB sharing" or 
something like that.  It's an option in the notifications area.

Once you do that, Linux will automatically find it as a USB removable media 
device.  Prior to that, it is actually a USB networking device.  If you have 
"root" and/or the right permissions on your plan, you can connect your laptop 
via 3G through the phone in the default mode.
