http://ubuntuforums.org – I just thought I'd share that the new Samsung Galaxy S variant on T-Mobile US (the Vibrant) works perfectly for USB tethering in Ubuntu 10.04. I just plugged in the USB cable and Network Manager automatically detected the new "Mobile Broadband" connection. Not sure if it matters, but I chose "T-Mobile G1" as the plan and it connected immediately. No more ConnectBot + adb + ssh tunnels to get simple USB tethering! Kudos all-around. EDIT: It appears PPP tethering is only active when "USB Debugging" is enabled on the phone, which leads me (HowTos)
