    Considering I don't believe this is a hugely covered topic I will allow it.
    To be successful here you should read all of the following.
    If you are new to Back|Track
    Back|Track Wiki
    Failure to do so will probably get your threads deleted or worse.

    you could try using wvdial for that kind of connection.
    you will need to make a config file that wvdial will use, it should look like the following:

    [Dialer Defaults]
    Init1 = ATZ
    Init2 = ATQ0 V1 E1 +FCLASS=0
    Modem Type = USB Modem
    ISDN = 0
    Phone = *99#
    Modem = /dev/ttyACM0
    Username = #######
    Password = #######
    #Baud = 460800
    Baud = 921600
    DialCommand = ATDT
    FlowControl = NOFLOW
    Stupid Mode = 1
    Init3 = AT+CGDCONT=1,"IP","internet"
    just fill your settings accordingly and give it a go.
    right now i'm online via usb-gprs

    p.s.: getting that info above just took 10 minutes of google-ing

    I have had absolutely zero success using wicd to get online with my internal HS-USB WWAN modem.
    As long as qcserial is not present, & no firmware handler available to load the firmware to the modem, which needs to be switched from USB Storage to USB Modem, my WWAN modem will not work at all...

    Is there any plan to upgrade the kernel to 2.6.32 > ?

    No amount of web-searching will rectify this issue until qcserial is included in the kernel.

    I have a firmware loader app, I have the firmware, but I'm not going to compile the kernel on a netbook just to get up to date modules!

    Perhaps there's a more recent kenel for BT 4 pre that I might be able to use?
