Actually, no.  It doesn't have to pair to read and write to internal storage.  You only have access to the pictures dir and other files they may have put on the "external storage" section, but you can plug it into any system that has drivers and access it.

I'm not sure how it's done on Linux, but in general the iPhone pairs with computers and refuses to talk to to an unpaired computer if there is a passcode lock.  You might only be able to read/write data because you are already paired.
