I'm trying to dial in to my phone provider for internet access using my
cellphone (Samsung D900i) connected to a USB port of my computer.

At boot, FreeBSD recognizes the phone as a USB modem:
ugen: Samsung Mobile USB Modem, rev. 2.00/1.00, addr 2

I've modified /etc/ppp/ppp.conf to use the device mentioned above:
   set device /dev/ugen1
and changed username, password, phone# etc according to my provider's

However, when I try to actually dial out, I get:
tun0: Warning: chat_Write: Operation not supported by device

Any thoughts?
