Linux and Motorola L2

[Motorola L2]

GPRS connection

I have connected my Linux laptop with an USB cable to the Motorola L2 phone. I use wvdial to set up a GPRS connection. My GSM-provider is T-Mobile in the Netherlands. You can find my /etc/wvdial.conf here.

After connecting the USB cable between the laptop and the phone, this is what dmesg shows:

usb 2-1: new full speed USB device using uhci_hcd and address 6
usb 2-1: configuration #1 chosen from 2 choices
cdc_acm 2-1:1.0: ttyACM0: USB ACM device
and this is in /proc/bus/usb/devices:
T:  Bus=02 Lev=01 Prnt=01 Port=00 Cnt=01 Dev#=  6 Spd=12  MxCh= 0
D:  Ver= 1.10 Cls=02(comm.) Sub=00 Prot=00 MxPS= 8 #Cfgs=  2
P:  Vendor=22b8 ProdID=4902 Rev= 0.01
S:  Manufacturer=Motorola Inc.

lsmod shows the module cdc_acm is loaded.


The Motorola L2 works fine with moto4lin. I haven't uploaded any stuff like mp3 or movies to the phone. I don't use my phone like that.


I have been able to download the addressbook from the Motorola L2 with KMobileTools and to browse through the SMS messages that are saved on the phone. KMobileTools comes with some tools to edit and send SMS messages, I haven't tried that yet.

I have not been able to upload an addressbook to the phone (although I would like to do that).
