Cell Phone Modem Configuration
« on: August 04, 2004, 09:29:04 PM »
i'm trying to get my cell phone (motorola timeport 270c - CDMA (NOT GSM)) to interface with my laptop (running gentoo linux 2.6.7 kernel) so that i can have a mobile modem.

unfortunately the whole thing isn't communicating, so i'm gonna spew out the var
ious info i have and hope that one of you smart peoples can point me in the corr
ect dirrection.

when i plug the phone into the laptop /var/log/messages outputs:
Aug  4 14:13:24 widget usb 4-1: new full speed USB device using address 2
Aug  4 14:13:25 widget cdc_acm 4-1:1.0: ttyACM0: USB ACM device
Aug  4 14:13:25 widget usbcore: registered new driver cdc_acm
Aug  4 14:13:25 widget drivers/usb/class/cdc-acm.c: v0.23:USB Abstract Control M
odel driver for USB modems and ISDN adapters

thusly, they can talk and the kernel module loads correctly....

so then i try to create the configuration file for wvdial so that i can dial out
, and i get this:


/var/log# wvdialconf /etc/wvdial.conf
Scanning your serial ports for a modem.

ttyS0<*1>: ATQ0 V1 E1 -- failed with 9600 baud, next try: 115200 baud
ttyS0<*1>: ATQ0 V1 E1 -- and failed too at 115200, giving up.

ttyS2<*1>: ATQ0 V1 E1 -- failed with 2400 baud, next try: 9600 baud

ttyS2<*1>: ATQ0 V1 E1 -- and failed too at 115200, giving up.

Sorry, no modem was detected!  Is it in use by another program?
Did you configure it properly with setserial?

Please read the FAQ at http://open.nit.ca/wvdial/

If you still have problems, send mail to wvdial-list@lists.nit.ca.

so now i'm led to believe that i am supposed to configure my cell phone with set
serial, but i'm completely lost... since it's a USB does it even need a com port
? baud rate? am i going about this in entirely the wrong way? what does /var/log
/messages mean when it says that the device is using 'address 2' (which incrimen
ts each time i disconnect and reconnect the phone)?

note: i've also played around with minicom to try and get some response but have
 gotten nowhere.
