Bug Description

network-admin creates a chatscript that contains the modem initialization string "AT&FH0M0" which is invalid. First, it is IMHO not good to initialize the modem back to factory defaults without prompting the user(&F). Second, if there is anything after the AT&F it needs to include the profile number first. That is, AT&F is valid (the modem assumes profile 0) but AT&FH0 is incorrect (because 'H' is not a valid parameter for &F)

Note that the last statement is not necessarily correct for all modems, but I believe it is for many, and it definitely is for mine. Further, all modems which support the AT command set should accept an AT&F0 -- that is, 'AT&F0H0M0' should be correct in more cases than 'AT&FH0M0'

I don't know a lot about modem and have no configuration to work on that, I've forwarded the bug upstream though, they might have an opinion about it: http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=402957

Otherwise somebody with a modem configuration should probably have a look at that
