Question need mobile phone model to connect to internet


I intend to connect to internet by dial up connection using a mobile phone. I do the same thing using a nokia 6610 and DKU5 cable on windows and it works fine.This is the only thing i use windows for . Can somebody suggest me a good mobile phone model to connect to internet on mandriva2006. I also need help on softwares needed to install for the same. It would be kind if somebody directs me to a good FAQ on this topic. Thank you.

This phone is fine,I think.You have to use it as modem.When you connect phone in USB you have to find a new device i /dev.It is something like /dev/ttyACM0.If not try to:

#modprobe cdc_acm

So device is in /dev.Now open KPPP and setup a new modem /dev/ttyACM0.Then setup a new connection using new modem.
I made this with Motorola E398. Type of connection is CSD.I'm not sure is it working with GPRS.

i connected my phone with a USB cable. But ttyACM0 was not in /dev. My /var/log/messages show me new acm registered.

so i made ttyACM0 using

#mknod /dev/usb/ttyACM0 c 166 0
# chmod og+w ttyACM0

I setup modem connection (I set up a mannual connection with default parameters) and new account using kppp.
But when i try to connect its showing message

'unable to open modem'

Is my modem detected ? How do i check it? Is there any specific services i need to start or change any of the permissions ?

Regards
Deepak

No I think modem isn't detected.You have to:

ln -s /dev/ttyACM0 /dev/ttyUSB0

and setup it from kppp settings.

OK but before using /dev/ttyUSB0 you have to create link from /dev/ttyACM0 to /dev/ttyUSB0 by executing in console as root:

#ln -s /dev/ttyACM0 /dev/ttyUSB0

Then in modem section of kppp settings try to send request to modem.Now you have to receive some information about modem.If yes it's OK if not something is wrong.
Try:

#lsmod

Is there something about cdc_acm?

Then try:

#dmesg

And look for something about new connected modem.

I am using a Palm Treo 700p and have been working on connecting Linux to the internet using this phone. It has an internal modem that works fine under windoze, but the ttyUSB0 modem interface on Linux would crash the phone. Then I found a program, mobile-stream.com/usbmodem.html, that used the ttyACM0 interface. My problem was when I plugged in the phone all I got was the ttyUSB* devices. Doing links and mknod commands don't work, because the ttyUSB* device is through the "usbserial" module, not the "cdc-acm" module. Even when the cdc-acm module was loaded, the usbserial connected with the phone first. I found that I had to rmmod the usbserial module, and load cdc-acm first, and then when I plugged in the phone it created the ttyACM0 device.
