Internet through Airtel with Ubuntu

Today I want to share with you how I generally get to use internet at home with my phone and Ubuntu.My phone is Sony Ericson w200i and I haven't installed any PC suite in my system.I just plug in the data cable and I right click the network icon, and make sure that the checkbox "Enable Mobile broadband" is ticked on.Later on I enable phone mode in my phone and Ubuntu automatically pops me with the required settings in a step by step manner and after configuring, its over and the internet is on.
