Greetings,

1. Connect the mobile via USB cable.

2. Open terminal and type su to become root.

3. You'll be asked for the root password; type it in.

4. Issue this command:
wvdialconf /etc/wvdial.conf

This is when the phone will be detected as a modem. In this window, you should now be able to see the address the phone's modem is connected on. Note it down. E.g. `Modem = /dev/***'

5. Then to edit this file using a text editor, enter:
kwrite /etc/wvdial.conf


6. When Text Editor opens the file, make a note of the username and password in the file and erase everything from there. Then enter the following:
[Dialer Defaults]
Modem = /dev/ttyUSB0 # <-
Enter the USB port location here
Phone = *99#
Username = xxx # <- Enter the
username here
Password = xxx # <- Enter the
password here
Baud = 230400
Init1 = ATZ
Init2 = ATQ0 V1 E1 S0=0 &C1 &D2
+FCLASS=0
ISDN = 0
Modem Type = Analog Modem
Carrier Check = No


Hope that it will help

The root password should be your own password, respect the case (upper/lower) when you type it.
