6 I'm not sure what you're asking about it helping, but bluetooth is

12 Wifi is by far the simplest way to get network connectivity between
13 phone and computer. When combined with an FTP or SSH/SCP/SFTP server
14 on the phone, I've found it to be a fast and reliable way to transfer
15 files back and forth.

19 With the USB cable, you've got two options: MTP and USB-teather.
21 For me, Linux<->Android MTP support sort of works some of the time.
22 The last time I tried it, I couldn't get it to work, and switched to
23 using Wifi+FTP.
25 USB "teathering" provides what looks to the Linux desktop as a network
26 interface (with the phone acting as a router). For me that usually
27 "just works". When I want to transfer files, my phone is usually
28 already connected to the local network via Wifi, so that's what use.
