Do you have a mobile broadband device attached? If so, which one?

Thanks a lot.

Seems to me it is for using WinMobile device. I am using regular phone that let me to use common wvdial. I thought if NetworkManager has the tab for dial-up so it should be existing the way to use this settings. By the way, NetworkManager in 8.04 has common dial-up tab but 8.10 use "Mobile Broadband" - it ask the provider name at first. Up to me, NetworkManager-8.04 set up dialogue was better - it asked the mobile provider if I choose GPRS modem.
