GPRS modems work pretty well with Debian / RH 9 etc ... but Orange
connection for 99 allows you to surf only from the phone and use MMS to
use phone as modem you have to pay orange another Rs 499 pm ( total 599)
and your access speed depends on speed of phone modem and time of the
day :)

I used a Motorola v66 which has a 14.4 / 28.8 modem so I never got a
speed better than 2Kbps download.
