I was contacted by an engineer at Kyocera Wireless who tells me my phone will work with Linux. Having heard this, it confirms my belief that I don't know everything and solidifies my faith in mankind.


Here is what Steve writes:


I take some pride in making sure our phones perform true PPP
as expected by Linux and other operating systems. :)

The phone should appear just like a normal modem, and respond to AT
commands. For wireless packet data, simply dial the magic number:
ATDT#777

This enables PPP packet detection. From there, it should reply to the
usual PAP/CHAP negotiation for your login and password. (It's up to
your carrier what you use there, same as in Windows.)

    I have posted the information I gathered to get my Kyocera 2135 working in Red Hat 8.0 including my ppp dialer script and various AT commands to get the phone in the propper modes.
