GPRS connection available afer Ubuntu's install
There are users (like me) with no lan connection and those users are forsed to use Ubuntu in "off- line mode" - no updates or S/W installations from the net. Would be very good to have possibility to connect to the internet via GPRS/EDGE out-of-the-box: the installation is finished and user can go on-line by specifyning phone no to dial, user name/password and modem's initialization string (if required by operator).
Please add modem INIT strings capabilities to network-manager

We should start melting the many Blueprints around handling this issue and correlate with the work done with pppoeconfig and network-manager.
