Comment 2 for bug 1321627

An interesting line in syslog is:

URfkill[3014]: <warning> Could not set Online property in oFono: Timeout was reached

In the case of MTK modem, onlining the modem after powering it on takes ~8 seconds, so probable the timeout has to be increased (maybe to ~20 seconds to be on the safe side).

However, even if there is a timeout the values written in the file should reflect what the user wanted, as the only way get back to normal state is to use /usr/share/urfkill/scripts/block to activate the modem.
