Since network manager 0.7.1 is out I would like to ask to introduce libmbca support to it; this way network manager will show a nice configuration dialog for mobile broadband as shown here:

It is necessary to add 2 packages, mobile-broadband-provider-info (which is a xml database) and libmbca.

hm, interesting, didn't know about that.
I wonder if they have support for Ukraine :-) (but anyway it's really easy to connect manually).

tried it in Ubuntu 9.06 - the info for Ukraine was outdated => useless for me, so I couldn't try how it works
