I have no clue is there anything like I asked or not. I often use Nokia n72 to connect to the Internet. The problem Im facing is, after two or three hrs the modem automatically disconnects.

I can not fix it by restarting the phone. Rather I always had to restart the whole system. Its very annoying. After restart I can reconnect N72 and it works fine. Is there a fix to this ?

You tried reconnecting your phone after unplugging it, when you get disconnected? – Kushal May 12 '12 at 18:47
Yes. it do work sometimes. but most times i had to restart Ubuntu, otherwise the mobile does not shows up on the selection menu. – Curious Apprentice May 13 '12 at 10:28
