Mobile Internet using my Nokia E71 and Debian GNU/Linux

I never expected connecting to Globe's 3G network using Debian GNU/Linux Unstable and my trusty Nokia E71 to be a walk in the park, but I was dead wrong. Configuring the connection via Gnome's Network Manager applet proved to be a breeze.

  1. Right click on the Network Manager icon, and select Edit Connections

  2. Connect the Nokia E71 via USB cable to your PC. Make sure you select the PC Suite mode of operation in the phone when prompted.

  3. Select the Mobile Broadband tab and click the Add button. A popup will appear and show the Nokia E71 as one of the options.

  4. In the username and password, provide the values globe, and set the APN to internet.globe.com.ph. Save the connection (for me I labeled it as Nokia E71 - Globe).

  5. The Mobile Broadband option for your new 3G connection is now ready! Select it from the options in the Network Manager applet and enjoy your 3G connection.
