Reliance Datacard EC121 on Ubuntu Linux

You will need to activate your phone using Windows and the bundled software. Once this is done you can connect to the internet using Ubuntu or MacOSX.

apt-get install wvdial

Edit your /etc/wvdial.conf and add the following

[Dialer Defaults]
Init1 = ATZ
Init2 = ATQ0 M1 L1 X3 V1 E1 S0=0 &C1 &D2 +FCLASS=0
Modem Type = Analog Modem
ISDN = 0
Abort On No Dialtone = False
New PPPD = yes
Phone = #777
Modem = /dev/ttyUSB0
Username = <username>
Password = <password>
# Baud = 460800
# Stupid Mode = 1

By default the username and the password is your phone number.

You can now connect to the internet by running sudo wvdial
