Connecting to XL 3G via Sony Ericsson W850i

While it is not so newbie friendly, I never thought that configuring Internet connectivity using my cellular phone will be a straightforward process. All I did just edit the /wtc/wvdial.conf into this:

Init1 = ATZ
Init2 = ATQ0 V1 E1 S0=0 &C1 &D2 +FCLASS=0

Modem Type = USB Modem
Baud = 460800
Modem = /dev/ttyACM1
ISDN = 0
Phone = *99***1#
Phone1 = *99***2#
Password = proxl
Username = xlgprs

then, I connect by calling wvdial (with root privillege)

sudo wvdial

Just be very cautious with the cost as it is charged per KB!
