[Gta04-owner] 3G internet connection

does it really work? Hermann said we need to use /dev/ttyHS_Control 
instead of /dev/ttyHS_Modem.

What's the reason for using femtocom? Isn't /dev/ttHS_Control a 
tty-Device where one could directly do an echo to it?

I tried to do "apt-get install femtocom" but it couldn't find the 
package. For compiling it by myself on the phone, I need gcc, but gcc is 
not part of the QtMoko distro. So I need to apt-get install it. It says 
that it's 29,5 MB, so with my current 2G connection would take some 
hours only for getting it. Other possibility would be to connect the 
phone to the internet via IP over USB. But therefor I also need to do 
the right network setup, where I always have to look within my 
documentation how to do it, because I cannot remember them. So what I 
want to say is:

a) I'll try it out when I have some more time, i.e. weekend.

b) If femtocom is really needed for such things (why?), please add it to 
the distro or at least to the repository. Handling would become much 
more user friendly...

Best regards
