According to your dmesg output

da4 at umass-sim1 bus 1 scbus3 target 0 lun 0
da4: <HTC Android Phone 0100> Removable Direct Access SCSI-2 device
da4: 40000 MB/s transfers

the da4 device is the correct one. Check which access files
are created:

	# ls -l /dev/da4*

You can check the partitioning of the da4 device with

	# fdisk da4

which should show you what kind of partitions are available
to access, and what type they are of. If you see a FAT
partition, it will probably be /dev/da4s1, so (including
security means, just for testing):

	# mount -t msdosfs -o ro /dev/da4s1 /mnt

should mount it read-only. You can also use a per-filsystem
identification using

	# file - < /dev/da4s1

for proper identification (at least this works with partitions
containing UFS filesystems, no idea about FAT stuff).

Check dmesg output in parallel to see if the Android didn't
cut the wire due to a timeout.

Take one step after another: First identify what is available,
then identify it, and finally mount it for testing. If it all
works, make a permanent option (e. g. in /etc/fstab) for it
if you want.
