A little late to the discussion, but Panji Nushantara on
planet.ubuntu.com composed a list of GSM modems he has used
successfully with Ubuntu Linux. Some of these are cell phones (The
Huawei and Sierra Wireless ones are not, anyway). These are only GSM
devices, so this particular selection would limit you to Rogers.
