Bug Description

Ubuntu 15.04 r51

1. Flash or reset the phone.
2. Go through the setup process.
3. Connect the phone to a PC.

What happens: The PC automatically has access to the documents, photos, music etc on the phone.

What should happen: You should be prompted about whether you want to allow data transfer, or just want to charge the phone, to avoid juice jacking.

<https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Storage#storage-access>: "If you connect (or someone else connects) your locked phone to a device that tries to read its storage, it should be denied. If you connect the phone while unlocked: * If the device (as identified by its USB Vendor, ProdID, Rev, and SerialNumber) is not one that you have previously granted/denied storage access to, a prompt should appear with title 'Device Connected', primary text 'Make all your data accessible to this device?' and buttons 'Share Data' and 'Charge Only'..."

Currently the PC has no access to data on the phone at all. Cf. bug #1434992.
