Hi guys,

In ubuntu 9.10, I connect the mobile device and a icon appears in desktop, but it doesn't start and doesn't connect. I went to "network connections" -> mobile broadband -> add -> select contry, bla bla bla ->insert PIN->apply

Have I done it wrong?

Thanks for reading

You may get a better answer if you say what type of device and mobile provider. For Verizon USB720 all I had to do was select country and mobile provider in Network Connections and it simply worked. I do not have any PIN or login.

Some devices apparently are initially seen as usb mass storage, since they include autorun software for some OSs, and you may need to umount or eject that. There is a wiki with info on may devices at https://wiki.ubuntu.com/NetworkManager/Hardware/3G
