USB tethering with android 2.1 handset (Samsung Galaxy) – Ubuntu 11.04

Neither an app is needed nor an android 2.2 (or later) handset.

I am using a Samsung Galaxy 5 (GT I 5500), android 2.1.

Just attach your phone using your USB data cable.

Click on the network manager applet an choose “New Mobile Broadband (GSM) connection”.

The assistant will open immediately. Click “Forward”!

Choose your region.

Choose your provider.

Chose your billing plan, in my case “Default” will do it.

Confirm your settings!

BINGO! Connection established.

ATTENTION: Do not attach your phone before log-in.
Otherwise your phone will not be recognized.

I'll be testing this how-to with some other androidhandsets.
Next one will be a HTC Desire smartphone.
