Bug Description

Binary package hint: hal-info

Nokia 5300 phone is not recognized as mobile broadband modem. So it cannot be used through NetworkManager.
I think this can be a problem of hal-info, maybe something is lack in /usr/share/hal/fdi/information/10freedesktop/10-modem.fdi

Can you please download this patch, do

  sudo patch /usr/share/hal/fdi/information/10freedesktop/10-modem.fdi /path/where/you/downloaded/10-modem.fdi

then reboot your computer (might not be necessary, though), and check if it works then?
