Have you had any luck trying the QNC? When attempting to use it (same configuration and distro as you), my vx6000 displays the call banner "3G 1X DATA" whereas under Windows when I use it it is "DATA CALL".

I've got a thread started on this over at Ubuntu Forums.

I posted a follw-up to your question in the Ubuntu forums. Try the faster 3G service first man, it is not a pay service. I use my minutes like everyone else does. The slow service is just that....slower! I guess the qnc service will work on non-verizon towers when you are roaming -- mainly because the tower does not have the equipment to offer digital data services??? Don't know man, but try the 3G before messing around with qnc settings...
