GPRS connection in Ubuntu Jaunty

I've been using this beta version of Ubuntu Jaunty for a few days now, and today I wanted to establish a GPRS/GSM connection with my Nokia, using a USB cable. I had done this in my other Kubuntu distribution, and I only needed to set the parameters right in kppp.

This time I had a very pleasant surprise: as soon as I connected the USB cable, a pop window showed up:

after pressing Forward:

it already had all the parameters I needed, I just had to select the right voices in the Country and Provider, and I'm on-line!

Well done developers :-)
