They exist. The LG VX-6000 & VX-7000 are supported by the Linux acm drivers built into kernels 2.4 & 2.6. You do however, need a usb data cable, and you need to configure the phone for serial, *NOT* for usb communication. This is true whether you get a serial converted usb cable or a direct cable. (Assuming the usb converted cables serial converter is also supported by the acm driver.)


You can then use ppp to get online, and bitpim ( http://bitpim.sourceforge.net ) to sync your data.

Excuse me for my ignorance, but I've configured my kernel for the CDC and ACM support... and I'm not totally sure how to make those phones go serial but there is a option in the 1x data port that will allow you to toggle between USB and something called RS-___COM something... but when I toggle between that and login to gnome... and goto the PPP gnome thingy, I try to have it detect my modem it wont detect anyhting and whats really weird is it only has /dev/modem/ /dev/ttys0 /dev/ttys1 /dev/ttys2 /dev/ttys3 and thats it... as for choices of the modem I have analog USB and ISDN... any advice???


By the way I appreicate you replying to this thread you may h ave helped me find a breaktrhough on this..

The RS-232 COM does refer to serial. I find that kppp won't connect over it also, but when I use pppconfig and pppd on the command line, it works great! The device for 2.4/2.6 with devfs enabled is /dev/usb/acm/0. I think the sysfs alternative is something like /dev/usb/ttyACM0. After the phone is plugged in and on (with the acm drivers loaded), try running 'find /dev -iname *acm*' at a command prompt to get the list of available devices for acm. You may need to be root to do this. You should then make sure you have read/write permissions on that device, or gnome will not be able to find the phone. However, since the phone will issue 'ERROR' as the response to any standard modem info queries, gnome will likely not find it anyway. You should be able to use pppd on a command line at the very least. You can also use minicom or seyon (serial terminal software) or the like to talk to the phone's acm device directly and make sure you get a response. Use 'AT$QCMDR=3' in the terminal, if you get 'OK' then the phone is working. You could dial a number by typing 'ATDT18005551212' (or any other number ) to be sure the phone responds.

As far as the modem goes, you will need no modem for this task as the phone will act as a 33.6k modem for dial-up to other modems, and a 56k modem to national access.

To dial national access (assuming you get this far), use 'AT$QCMDR=3' as your init string, '#777' as the phone number to dial, your login name is '8005551212@vzw3g.com' (replace the 8005551212 with your verizon phone number), and 'vzw' as your password. This is a little weird as is will connect instantly and issue you an IP address, but the phone will connect and disconnect automatically as you send data.
