Bug Description

Binary package hint: hal-info

I will attach a patch to hal-info that adds support for the following Nokia E-series and N-series as modems:


This I believe is only missing N85 for complete N and E-series support, but I couldn't find a phone or any information about the product ID. Anyway, will attach the patch. Hopefully this goes upstream as the other ones.

This patch is against:

Great, thanks! Where did you take this information from? I'd like to mention the source in the upstream commit log.

Mostly from here and other websites (cross-referencing the findings to make sure this is the real deal) and my own sources.

It should be noted that Nokia phones with the NNNN (where N is a number) model numbering scheme would also work as modems, but adding them should follow some testing, as most of them are S40, not S60 phones.

Ah, thanks. So we can't actually be sure that all of the ones you added support the two command sets and actually provide modem functionality?

No, you misunderstood me I think. Nokia Nseries and Eseries are all S60 Symbian phones, they all provide the same modem functionality. What I wanted to add in my previous comment is that it would be a good idea to wade through the rest of the phones and find out which ones with the NNNN naming scheme are *also* S60. But this patch is a good beginning to add full support for all Nokia phones. It's safe to add it. The NNNN phones need to be checked first and they aren't part of the patch.
