Hello to everyone,

I would like to know if and how to use the Huawei E169 internet key as phone under Debian/Ubuntu Linux. Which kind of tool can I use ? I make this question because I've unlocked the device and now under Windows I can place and receive phone calls through the mobile partner tool that I have taken from the Huawei website. Can I do the same thing under Debian/Ubuntu Linux ? Thanks.

No,because I want to install Linux on a wi-fi only tablet and I want to make and receive phone calls with it. The tablet runs on an ARM cpu,I don't know if wine can works well on this situation. And I've already tried to run the Huawei mobile partner application for Windows on Linux with Wine,but it didn't work because the device is not recognized.

Hi,

Perhaps this would point you in the direction of some mobile devices that have had Linux builds prepared for them including voice apps?

Hello,thanks for your help. I've been able to find only this :

it doesn't seems like what I need,but it is the closest. Anyway I can't imagine that someone has not created an application to make and receive phone calls using the UMTS/GSM data card.
