hmmm... Honestly I have never done that...but it does sound
interesting...something to try... mostly I just connect thru the terminal
and disconnect likewise...

The reason I do that is due to the fact that on the first connect attempt
the modem never initializes ... It only initializes on the second try.
Seems as though wvdial is a bit broken in Dapper and Edgy...works fine in
Breezy with the GUI i.e without doing any configs with wvdial if i remember

Even in first configuring the modem with Edgy I have to "sudo wvdialconf" at
least three time before it recognizes the modem...but I guess stranger
things have happened...hehe....
