Hi there, can anyone suggest me a cheap but reliable USB GPRS modem that works with linux?

I hope I can use it with a simple ppp connect and chat script.

Thank you!

thanks ehawk, I'm interested to something like the iTegno and the Samba 75 but I haven't see anyone use it before. I'm seeking for the one that I can leave it running for months or even years with my linux mobo.

I'm developing a simple data logger. I'll place these loggers at some areas in the jungle that have GPRS connection and it will continuously send the data via GPRS to the Main Server.

I've seen some solution using phone, but I'm not really sure with the stability. How about the power supply for the phone? can anyone suggest me the right phone to use? I've tried some nokia phones before for the same task but I'm having problem with the battery where it stop charging and then died if I plug the charger and let the power on forever.
