Wish i had free gprs

I don't think this is possible - Nokia did release a D211 driver for Linux, but part of the driver is binary (which, predictably, means x86), and the license it comes with prohibits reverse-engineering (which is probably against the DMCA as i'm sure this allowed "reverse engineering for the purpose of inter-operability".

I'm not even sure if it'll work on newer kernels either. You are probably better off with getting a CF or PCMCIA bluetooth card that works with linux (can't help you there sadly), and using the bluez rfcomm serial support to a mobile phone. You can then start a ppp connection using something like wvdial to the "special" *99# number (there's plenty of guides on how to do this out there).

Well, the source for the jdk / "netscape compatible browser" plugin is available, so in theory it is available. However, it may not be compiled for JLime so you may have to do this yourself (which will be painful on a 206mhz SA with 32mb).

Java will be slow anyway, why not just use xf4vnc, tightvnc, etc?

I have no experience with PCMCIA or CF BT cards; and i'm not sure what cmonex means. I guess maybe it's a PCMCIA card with a standard UART interfaced to GSM/GPRS circuitry..In theory this would work fine in any linux, provided the UART shows up as a serial device.

Over to cmonex to provide examples from her extensive selection of hardware

nothing to do with BT.

CE can handle these gprs cards i talked about so linux will be the same.
