Hello Nikolaus,

> GSM/UMTS has an open driver ("HSO") and otherwise uses AT commands, i.e. 
everything free and open.

What about the closed firmware within the modem?

IIRC the modem contains an own GPS module. Are you quite sure that the 
modem's firmware is not able to send GPS data to anywhere in the world 
over GSM without asking you?

Please spend some thoughts about the iPhone befiore you answer.

Best regards
   Sven
