Blackberry 3G Bluetooth Modem for Kubuntu

First, get the GPRS files

Special thanks to Mikko Rapeli for posting the files on his site. Download the GPRS Scripts.

Edit and Install

The files will need to be editted based on your particular set-up. The pegelinux blog has some pretty good instuctions.

Provider Customization

Some of the edits are provider specific. I found this APN Reference Table with info on most providers. The AT&T info worked for me.

Make the Connection

pppd call gprs should make it work when done. I just wrap that up in a bash script in my $HOME/bin directory so, it's a shortcut away. Now when travelling, I don't need to pay the $10/tmobile/starbucks fee just to check mail.

woohoo!
