RAZR2 (V9m) in Linux as a Modem

Before we start, make sure your phone is in Data / Modem mode, and that it is not plugged in.

  1. Open a terminal, and make yourself a super-user.
    > su
  2. Now remove the usbserial module if it is loaded.
    # rmmod usbserial
  3. Let’s register the phones vendor and product ID with the usbserial module.
    # modprobe usbserial vendor=0x22b8 product=0x2b24
  4. Plug in your phone.

If you type in ‘dmesg’ now, you should see that your phone was assigned a tty pointer. If so, your phone is now a modem.
