I've spend all afternoon trying different variations of your script and the Mac script they have on the Pulse site.

Anyone get this thing working?

I've even got the gateway part setup.

:(
I also have a 8700g. The error message I get when I look in /var/log/messages is
Sep 3 13:45:07 dhcppc0 ifup-ppp: pppd started for T_mobile on /dev/rfcomm0 at 115200
Sep 3 13:45:08 dhcppc0 kernel: PPP generic driver version 2.4.2

Sep 3 13:45:28 dhcppc0 pppd[3518]: Exit.

It seems that it is attempting to communicate and after about 30 seconds
on the dialup modem gui there is: Activation error 7

I get the following responses to the corresponding commands

[root@dhcppc0 stratos]# hcitool scan

I bound it to channel 4 as follows although I tried all the other channels with the
say error message
[root@dhcppc0 stratos]# rfcomm bind 00:1C:CC:35:8C:05 channel 4

I also check the existense of the device, namely
$ls /dev/rfcomm0
and I see the device highlighted.


The content of my wvdial.conf is
[Modem0]
Modem = /dev/rfcomm0
Baud = 115200
SetVolume = 0
Dial Command = ATDT
Init1 = ATZ
FlowControl = CRTSCTS
[Dialer T_mobile]
Phone = *99#
Init1 = ATZ
Init3 = at+cgdcont=1,"IP","wap.voicestream.com"
Inherits = Modem0


Has anyone been successful with the 8700g? I would appreciate
your help.
