The Sakis3g script currently only works on GSM (Econet) networks not
CDMA (Africom/Powertel). Sinclair would like to to get some notes on
setting up Powertel on Ubuntu from you as i know you managed to get it
working. I have upgraded to Ubuntu 10.10 and network manager doesn't
pick it up, not sure what I'm missing here, although you being on
Kubuntu might mean there are packages you have installed that I don't.

Many Thanks,
