When I connect my Phone using USB connection it doesnt show me the Dialog box where it says create new "Mobile Broadband Connection". I am not sure how can I configure my Tata Docomo GPRS Connection to use it with Ubuntu.
Here's one blog i came across which says:- Its wonderful to see people browsing in their mobile phones at work places and while they travel. Many Telecom companies provide cheap GPRS / EDGE based internet connectivity which can also be connected to a computer. Here, I will explain how to connect TATA Docomo Internet service in your Ubuntu machine.

if anyone here could recommend a cellphone. My main requirement is that it should tether as a 3.5g modem via USB to a PC running Fedora 13. I have previously used a Nokia to good effect, but their standpoint on privacy is making me look for a different brand.
Devices are paired, sending files from laptop to phone no problem. I think, there is a problem with permissions to write into a public dir. Picture 1. Permissions settled for shared 'Public' dir. Picture 2. Grey-out options in Bluetooth 'receive file' dialog. What to install into system to resolve that issue? Or, is there another solution?
I have an iphone, I am trying to get internet connectivity to that phone through wifi. I dont have a wifi router. But i do have a laptop with wifi card. I am connecting to internet via cable modem. In win7 I used to create an accesspoint and do the ics from ethernet card to share via wifi card. It used to work perfectly.
Now as I am sing ubuntu, i want to do the same. I have intalled firestarter, and shared the internet connection through wifi card(wlan0).After this I created an accesspoint using the gnome network applet. Now i can connect my ifone to ths accesspoint. But there is no internet connectivity in my fone.
I have a Samsung phone (S3310) and I'm trying use it as a modem to access the net on 10.04. I set up a Mobile broadband connection (under network connections) and I'm pretty sure the settings are correct because it works on a Nokia phone with the same service provider.
When I plug in my Data Cable and set it to Samsung PC Studio mode, my phone isn't detected as a modem. I just tried wvdialconf and it says "No modem detected". I'm guessing that maybe I'm missing some drivers here. what I can do get the phone detected as a modem.
I can pair my phone and laptop using bluetooth, from Network manager I can select my phone and make a connection. But then I can't access anything.I looked at the connection info from nm and tried to ping the given dns addresses. That failed. And I pinged those addresses when I reconnected with wireless and it failed. So, where are these setup? I didn't do it
I have a samsung messager touch R631 with 3G capability and I am trying to connect my laptop to the internet through it via bluetooth. Everything worked when I had the MAC OSx on my laptop, and after I switched to ubuntu 10.04LTS (32 bit) I cannot get it to work again. I did some searching and checked a few things out, but Everything I've tried with the BlueZ isn't working. It shows I'm connected, but it just doesn't work...is there any way to get it to work or another program or something I need? these are the 2 pages I refferenced...[url] [url]
How to connect to my Mobile Phone which have GPRS. I want to connect Via BLUETOOTH. Becoz I dont have any Data Cables.Plz give me the instructions to connect to my Phone via Bluetooth to access Internet.
I've just loaded up Fedora 13 and I like the new feature Fedora have which allows you to use your mobile as a internet modem over bluetooth. Is it possible to update my Network Manager in ubuntu 10.04 to this new version 0.8.997 through the package manager? Is there a PPA or something I could use?
Would just updating this add the bluetooth ability or would I have to update gnome-bluetooth package as well? Is it doable at all or should I just wait till the next Ubuntu comes out?
I've a Nokia 2323 Classic which I want to use to access to the internet on my laptop.
A friend of mine with a Dell Inspiron 15 running Windows 7 could connect to the net by just pairing up and right clicking on my phone's icon in the devices menu and selecting connect to internet via access point.
I've an eMachines E725 which lacks bluetooth. To overcome this I used a dongle which was able to successfully pair up with my phone via the bluetooth menu in preferences.
So what next ? How do I use the phone to connect to the internet directly via access point ?
I noticed that I did not need any operator related settings to do so in windows 7 and the phone worked regardless of SIM card present so I assume it should work similarly in linux.
What is left is to ask the system to treat it as an internet access device and use it that way.
How do I do it ? I don't mind a commandline way but a GUI would be better because I'm not the only person using my laptop.
ever since maverick came out and I updated I can't connect to internet via my mobile phone. I used to connect via bluetooh establish a dun connection and then I could connect from network manager. Everything goes ok with the bluetooth the connection is made and then NetworkManager doesn't see anything...what can I do?
I have just bought a HTC Desire Z mobile phone, running Android 2.2.
It has a feature to allow, via the USB cable, use of the Internet connection on a PC so that the phone can connect via that, rather than use the 3G or wi fi when those are not available or not wanting to use them. I want to download lots of applications without draining my 3G data allowance.
I have searched via Google, and some people have said that it just worked for them. They plugged in the phone to their Ubuntu PC and they could use the Internet on the phone.
But I cannot get it to work. I am new to Android, and still figuring out the phone. In the Settings/Wireless & Networks, there is an option for Internet Pass-through, which is trying to connect but never does. Then it comes up with a message saying: "Unable to connect to PC" and asks me to install HTC Sync software (which is Windows only).
Is there something I need to install in Ubuntu to get it to work?
If this is a problem exactly with Networking or my Laptop...I have a celron laptop 1.5GHZ with 1.5GB ram and 120GB HDD and I have a Intel 965 chipset I guess...
The problem is I have a desktop with ubuntu 10.04 and My network card...Huwaei runs fine but if I install on my latop with above specs it does not detemine the modem but it determines the micro SD in it...
Is the problem related with laptop or my network card...
If it is my latop then which version of UBUNTU should I run....
