Email Portal - Blackberry
By default the O2/RIM portal will use the email address as the username for the email account. This is fine unless your system needs a username that does not match the email address. To When setting up a new email address put in an incorrect email address so that set will fail. This failure will result in you being offered advanced set up options, amongst which is the option to specify a username.

Also, you may need to check the nameservers...
# nano /etc/resolv.conf nameserver 220.127.116.11 nameserver 18.104.22.168
And your kernel routing table...
# route -n Kernel IP routing table Destination Gateway Genmask Flags Metric Ref Use Iface 10.64.64.64 0.0.0.0 255.255.255.255 UH 0 0 0 ppp0 127.0.0.0 127.0.0.1 255.0.0.0 UG 0 0 0 lo 0.0.0.0 10.64.64.64 0.0.0.0 UG 0 0 0 ppp0
Acer Aspire One / Linpus Linux
Run Live Update, download all available packages, and then reboot.
Install 2 new packages...
yum install gnome-ppp libusb
Plug in the USB Modem... the File Manager window will appear.
Unmount (eject) the new USB drive and then close this window.
Download the USB ModeSwitch software and config file...
wget http://www.draisberghof.de/usb_modeswitch/usb_modeswitch-0.9.7.tar.bz2 wget http://www.draisberghof.de/usb_modeswitch/usb_modeswitch.conf
Copy the config file to the /etc directory...
cp usb_modeswitch.conf /etc/
Check which USB id (Vendor and Product) the modem has...
It should say something like...
ID 12d1:1003 Huawei E220 3G Modem
Untar the file and change into its directory, then run the following command using the Vendor and Product values from above...
./usb_modeswitch -v 0x12d1 -p 0x1003 -H 1
Create a .wvdial.conf file for the user who will be dialing (either /root/.wvdial.conf or /home/user/.wvdial.conf) and add / edit the following lines...
Phone = *99# Username = o2web Password = password
Then run the Gnome PPP program to connect...
Enter the password again in the box and press the Connect button. Be patient, it will take a while - but you should see the following lines...
GNOME PPP: STDERR: --> Using interface ppp0 GNOME PPP: STDERR: --> local IP address 10.xx.xx.xx GNOME PPP: STDERR: --> remote IP address 10.64.64.64 GNOME PPP: STDERR: --> primary DNS address 22.214.171.124 GNOME PPP: STDERR: --> secondary DNS address 126.96.36.199
Now, you will have to fix the kernel routing table...
route add -net 127.0.0.1 netmask 255.0.0.0 gateway 127.0.0.1 route del -net 0.0.0.0 route add default gateway 10.64.64.64 route -n
Now you test it...
DNS Name Servers
If you have problems, check your /etc/resolv.conf file has these lines...
nameserver 188.8.131.52 nameserver 184.108.40.206
