3G with nokia phone?


I'm currently using Acer AspireOne 532, and there's some questions regarding it..

Currently I've installed Ubuntu netbook remix on it, and I want to use my handphone which is Nokia XM 5320 as my 3G phone modem.

Is there any way to configure it? When in Windows, I can use nokia pcsuite to make my phone act as the 3G modem, but how to configure it in Ubuntu? [ditched Windows, due to bloated stuff in it, obviously]

Thanks a lot =)

*bump, just wanted to say..actually the settings are similar to others as well, like those 3G usb dongle.

This is how I set it up properly =)
Just remember to use the 'detect modem', setup few strings like your ISP apn and you're done =)

have to run it via sudo/gksu...else I'll get permission error...not sure how to fix it, tho...

using gnome-ppp to connect is much more stable then using the network-manager's as network-manager's connection tempted to drop often...
