Cell phone as a modem in linux

Post by hairyspheers » Thu Dec 29, 2005 3:49 pm

Hi everyone! I am new to this forum and linux. I have installed gentoox and it is awesome. I have been doing some searching on getting a cell phone to work as a modem in linux but I have not found anything here. Has this been done? Has anyone got bitpim work as well? For those who want to know, I am trying to get my sprint sanyo 7300 to work in linux. Thanks!

your going to need usb modem drivers for your phone, then you can dial phone numbers or i think its like #777 for using Vision service internet access
