I've moved into a new apartment where I can't get decent internet. However, I can connect via my mobile edge network. Just one problem: when someone tries to call my cell phone when I am connected, they cannot get through, and I never know about the call.

If I use the phone's own browser/email and it connects to edge, an incoming call will interrupt the connection. This is what I want. Is there a way to enable this in Ubuntu?

(I used the 'mobile broadband' section of the network manager to set-up the connection.)

Unless your phone accepts calls when used as a modem under Windows, then this may be a limitation of your phone rather than how Ubuntu uses it. Perhaps provide some details about the phone itself? –  James Henstridge Jul 21 '11 at 6:04
    
Sorry for the very long delay in responding. It may well be a problem with the phone. Sometimes it allows interrupts, sometimes not, and now that I think of it, this is the behaviour even under windows. (Nokia E63). It's just an issue I'll have to live with, I think. Thank you for your comment. –  oldmankit Aug 29 '11 at 5:45
