I am trying two sticks:

and

http://www.ebay.com/itm/HSDPA-EDGE-7-2Mbps-Wireless-USB-3G-Network-Modem-Adapter-TF-SIM-Card-Slot-G9-/171176662900?

I'll let y'all know how it goes. I'm curious if that diagnostic channel is available in other devices. I have a geeksphone keon that I sure would like to make more free...

Does anyone know if there are other models other than the Icon 225 that 
have this diagnostic mode? I just bought and Icon 225 via ebay but it is a CDMA version from Hungary. If all I can do is play around with the 
diagnostic mode that's fine but if another device would also work with 
GSM that would be more fun.

Thanks Alan,
Craig

This post is about the proprietary baseband RTOS.

It is calling public attention about the danger of running a
proprietary RTOS on your phone:
