Configuring Citycell Zoom with Nokia 3155 CDMA for Ubuntu 8.04 (hardy)

Posted on: June 28, 2008

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 …

[Dialer Defaults]

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 !

First time i buy nokia 3155 & problem to internet but nokia pc suite 6.8 was well & i recive a modem

Hi, this looks like I could possibly do, as I’m a Noobie Ubuntu user.

However, I don’t know how to save those changes in the conf file when in Terminal, how do you do that? Thanks so much!!

Dear ET Tenna> If you are on Ubuntu hardy i.e. 8.04 you will have your conf file as simply a text file. After editing click on the save button and the click on x or close button to save and exit. That is all. I am very new to Linux but have done it comfortably.

why people use ubuntu instead of Redhat

কারণ লিনাক্সের যত গুলো উপস্থাপন (ডিস্ট্রিবিউশন) আছে এর মধ্যে উবুন্টু সব চাইতে ব্যবহারকারী-বান্ধব (ইউজার ফ্রেণ্ডলি।) এর যে সচিত্র ইউজার ইন্টার ফেস রয়েছে তা উবুন্টু ব্যবহারকে সহজ করেছে। এর সাপোর্ট ক্ষমতাও অনেক বেশি। রেড হ্যাটের তুলনায় এতে সহজে যে কোন সফ্্টওয়াার সহজে ইনস্টল করা যায়। যে কোন ডিভাইস (মডেম, প্রিন্টার ইত্যাদি) সহজে সংযোগ করা যায়।
