Internet using a Nokia N73 and telia

This is just a quick guide, explaining how to use your Nokia N73 to get internet connectivity in debian. Please note that I use a data cable, not a bluetooth based serial connection.

First of, you need to install wvdial:

sudo apt-get install wvdial

Then you edit wvdial's configuration file:

sudo nano/etc/wvdial.conf

And add this section:

[Dialer telia]
Modem = /dev/ttyACM0  
Modem Type = Analog Modem  
Stupid Mode = 1  
ISDN = 0  
Phone =  \*99\#  
Username = telia  
Password = 1010  
Init2 = ATZ  
Init3 = ATE0V1&D2&C1S0=0+IFC=2,2  
Init5 = AT+CGDCONT=1,"IP","";  
Dial Command = ATDT  
Baud = 460800

Now you attach your phone to the datacable, and type in

sudo wvdial telia

If everything goes as planned, you should get connectivity. The speed isn't very high but it is enough to use ssh and write (this) blog. Enjoy. :-)
