Configuring Citycell Zoom with Nokia 3155 CDMA for Ubuntu 8.04 (hardy)
Posted June 28, 2008on:
I have moved to Linux (ubuntu) fully. So my citycell zoom has to be configured here as this is my secondary internet connection. I emailed citycell customer information center to know if they had any easy solution for this configuration. You know i’m a bit lazy …he he ...although hasin bhai’s this post was helpful….but I couldn’t get them all in with my handset mobile nokia 3155 CDMA…
anyways, citycell replied …and here is the main part they said….
“Dear Mr. Rahman,Thank you for your email. Please be informed that you can use the Nokia hand set as modem in Windows 2000, Windows XP or in windows vista if the set has the data modem inside it but we are very sorry to let you know that you cannot use Nokia CDMA handset in Linux operating system“
this is what made me to get this configuration done 🙂 . Anyways, I have configured it and here is step by step solution ……(thanks mahmud and anupom for reminding some important commands)
first connect your CDMA mobile with your Data cable……now, open the command line and type “wvdialconf “. If your CDMA mobile is connected then you will see the result in the bellow….you suppose to see something like this at the bellow of the full result….
Found an USB modem on /dev/ttyACM0.
Modem configuration written to /etc/wvdial.conf.
so you modem configuration written in the /etc/ directory. Now we just have to configure that file with our user name, pass etc….so let’s open that file with the following command.
sudo vi /etc/wvdial.conf
this command will open the configuration file. After configuring your file should simply look like the following …
Init1 = ATZ
Init2 = ATQ0 V1 E1 S0=0 &C1 &D2 +FCLASS=0
Modem Type = USB Modem
ISDN = 0
New PPPD = yes
Phone = #777
Modem = /dev/ttyACM0
Username = waps
Password = waps
Baud = 460800
now simply dial with the command “wvdial” – if you did everything the way I explained it will dial your ZOOM connection and you will get connected 🙂
ohh, to disconnect your connection simply press “Ctrl+C”
thats it !
