--> The PPP daemon has died: A modem hung up the phone (exit code = 16)
--> man pppd explains pppd error codes in more detail.
--> Try again and look into /var/log/messages and the wvdial and pppd man pages for more information.
As you can see this PPP daemon error ( code 16 ) is killing me.. How to solve it? Pls help me guys...
PS: Running Ubuntu 10.10
PPS: I can connect to net via Bluetooth quite fine. I just paired up the phone and ubuntu asked if I'd like to use it as a modem to access net and within seconds i was up and running BUT I just don't know what the damn problem is there is data cable?
Perhaps try the solution mentioned in this post, also see if there are any other guides to setup a data connection for your carrier, specifically APN, PPP settings, number, etc. Additionally, you may want to try to configure it through NetworkManager (have done both manual wvdial and NM setup for my BT and USB connection for my N900)
I would suggest attempting to set it up through NetworkManager, when plugged in and configured to connect in "data" mode (or whatever your phone calls it), it should appear in the available-to-configure connections
