NetworkManager and phones and data plans

Dan Williams:

NetworkManager mobile broadband support…can most likely use your GSM mobile phone…if you add the appropriate stuff to the HAL .fdi file.

Blimey, that’s excellent. What would be required to get .fdi files for loads of phones into HAL by default, so it Just Works out of the box? For a given mobile phone model, will the serial port always have the same settings, or does it depend on who your phone company is and so on as well? It’d be brilliant to have this all working with no configuration required. (PS. Dan, I couldn’t use OpenID to log in to leave this as a comment on your site; it didn’t recognise as an OpenID for some reason.)

I'm currently available for hire, to help you plan, architect, and build new systems, and for technical writing and articles. You can take a look at some projects I've worked on and some of my writing. If you'd like to talk about your upcoming project, do get in touch.
