How to use WorldCall EVDO USB on Linux?

Few days back, one of our friend from Pakistan requested us to write a recipe to Use WorldCall USB on Linux. By default Linux 2.6 Kernel support USB EVO devices but it required a little configuration in /etc/wvdial.conf.

BTW We are using BackTracK 5 Linux on our stations.

Configuring WorldCall usb on linux :

Install a PPP dialer on Ubuntu/BackTrack Linux

aptitude install wvdial


You should see following
Bus 004 Device 002: ID 16d5:6502 AnyDATA Corporation

vim /etc/wvdial.conf

copy & paste following configuration,

[Dialer Defaults]
init1 = ATZ
init2 = ATQ0 V1 E1 S0=0 &C1 &D2 +FCLASS=0
;init3 = AT+CGDCONT=1,"IP","data:tre:se"
Modem Type = USB Modem
Dial Command = ATDT
Baud = 460800
New PPPD = yes
Modem = /dev/ttyUSB0
Stupid Mode = 1
ISDN = 0
Phone = #777

Run wvdial and start surfing internet 🙂
