Quozl's Telstra ZTE F165 HSDPA Mobile Phone on Linux

Scope: Linux with Telstra ZTE F165 HSDPA Mobile Phone.

2009-05-16

Update

With Ubuntu 9.04, a popular and recent Linux distribution, the F165 is recognised.

When you plug in the F165 a panel appears on screen which says "New Mobile Broadband Connection", and "This assistant will guide you through setting up a new mobile broadband connection ..."

You can cause the same panel to appear again by doing this:

this displays a Network Connections panel, which has a series of tabs, and one of the tabs is Mobile Broadband, and in that tab you press the + Add button and the same panel appears.

Clicking Forward reveals a list of providers. After the sequence is done a new entry is created in the list of connections in the Network Connections panel.

I've not tested this, as I don't have a data plan enabled on my F165, and so it would cost me dollars per kilobyte or something equally bad.
