I'm using Interpid Ibex. I'm planning to buy a new 3G phone and wanna use it as a modem for my laptop. I heard the new Network Manager supports 3G, but I haven't try it out yet. Is there any success case? Any success with 3.5G too?

I've done it a lot over the holiday season, Works well (their is a bug on my system. If i connect my mobile when Wireless is running the system freezes!)

I'm in the UK and using my nokia N95 on THREE's 3g network (get 3g and 3.5g in my area both work well)
